    I'd love to respond that I'm currently playing with a brass band, but that is not the case.

    I started out in Germany in the mid-80s and played in several pickup SA groups. More fun than music,...

    Brass Band pieces?

    I bought a mute about 17 years ago, but I'll be doggoned if I remember which piece it was meant for, except it was for brass band.

    I should clarify - I don't recall playing Col. Bogey while marching - static only, or in concert. But I have it memorized, even today.

    ETA: One Alford march I certainly memorized to play while...

    I was never in a premier military band, but I certainly served in the U.S. Army as a euphoniumist and I well remember those mega-ceremonies. These were especially noteworthy in Berlin while the city...

    Adams does offer a "shortened" tuning slide which ostensibly compensates for the flat horn, indicating that Adams is aware of this issue to some level. But after having tried the shortened tuning...

    The decision's been made, so any further comment toward a recommendation is a moot point, but I want to chime in anyway with my thoughts on the Adams E2.
