    When I took my German band to Europe a couple of years back, we rented our low brass from Thomann and got their house brand instruments. They were very reminiscent of the other basic Chinese clones...

    Barry's advice is, as usual, spot on. A few additional thoughts:

    1. With the mic placement Barry's suggesting, an SM57 is going to be almost all direct sound. Unlike a condenser or ribbon, you're...

    My experience as someone who doubles between trumpet and euphonium tends to align with Dave's thinking on this. I find I can actually be lazier in my double tonguing speed on trumpet than on...

    In addition to the great advice above, I would recommend two other things:

    Hi Howellsimon,

    Unless you're regularly playing music that goes below low F# (treble clef) on Baritone, you might do well to consider a 3-valve compensating baritone. They tend to have a better...

    Arban is fond (possibly overly so) of chromatic lower neighbor tones while he doesn't use augmented chords much at all. Also, I really can't see him blurring chord quality lines by mixing a #5 and a...

    I can't speak to the age factor, but I will say that playing trumpet only occasionally is more likely to be frustrating than fun. As someone who has doubled on both regularly for the past decade or...
