    The Planets may not be, strictly speaking, a brass ensemble piece, but I have enjoyed every arrangement of Jupiter that I have heard. Mars does have some meaty brass parts. Personally I find...

    This does sound like great fun. But I am not sure that I have the time and mental bandwidth to pull together the planning of a low brass event at Tim's Music.

    Although, I was hoping that this...

    Other than calling the store and asking for Scott, or asking a local cornetist I go to church with to ask him for me, I don't have any connection with Scott. But do you think that he would let us...

    For some reason, your description of getting custom engraving reminded me of someone getting a tattoo (laughing). No disrespect intended. Here are some ideas for engraving. Use them individually,...

    I know that some folks have mentioned that thinking of or enunciating various vowels while playing can help improve tone and range. I think that this video demonstrates how that works. It lets you...

    Yeah, I was wondering if the spots on the bell could be cleaned off or not. Try some Windex and a soft cloth on them.

    I also would be interested in the details of your trumpet. Send me a private...

    I will follow your lead, Mr. Werden, as to whether this should be in a public part of the forum, or in a "members only" section. So far, I am comfortable with everything I have written being public....

    I intended this as a way to connect members with instruments that they would like to try out, and with each other.

    Update - Adopting digital

    Okay folks. I finally pulled the trigger and purchased a device for this purpose. I wanted/needed a new computer too, so I ended up getting a 13.3 inch 2-1 laptop/tablet hybrid (HP Spectre 360). I...

    Any chance this was recorded and made available somewhere? So that those of us that missed it can still see the "canned" version?

    It does try to speak to a wide selection of grad school majors, and has plenty of good advice, but not much that isn't probably repeated in many other places. My suggestion, skip it.

    Agreed!

    I will second Dave's opinion there. I purchased the same Jinbao JBBR-1240 baritone from an Ebay vendor and am very pleased with the service and the horn. It is now going on three years old, so I...

    Kind of fun to listen to because of the swing twist/flare (smile). But for the low brass folks, nothing much special to play. Until you get to the dogfight that is. The overall flavor changed, but...

    Bingo!

    Rick - This is getting better and better. Treble is my preferred clef too. Would you consider selling it to me for a few bucks, instead of returning it? PM me and we can work out the details.
