I play a besson sovereign its about 5 years old and the lacker is very worn but i love it and i wouldn't swap it for the best cornet in the world its my baby, does anyone else treat their instrument like a baby???
Larry Sinclair in the North is a really good instrument repairer and he has good rates of charge. you can find a link to his site on ever readys website. in my signaturehornblower said:i was very attached to my French horn I played at school he was called Cedric and I miss him...don't know what happened to all the instruments after they stopped giving free lessions in the authority...
I'm not attached to my current tenor horn as it belongs to the band! I have a tenor horn in desperate need of fixing I found in a clearance, all the valves are rusty, and not sure how good it could be if it was fixed up! I'm saving the pennies to be able to buy my own instrument...slowly...need a better paid job! :cry:
I apologise for that one-too much drink in Blackpool topped up straight off the boat!My Bass is my baby!
That's why it's dirty and smells of shite
Sod PC, think and say what you want-I don't think ascribing gender characteristics to your instrument (oo-er Matron) is sexist anyway, although for my money a euph, which could easily be viewed as a baby bass, is male.I do like Baldrick that is a good idea! That name is winning so far, although I don't know why but I asume my cornet to be female, basses and trombones I think would be male, but cornets, horns, baritones and euphoniums i think would be female.
Not very Politically Correct am I.......... oooooo sexism is alive and kicking!
