    The voting is closed, but I thought I would give a comment anyway. This is certainly a non-expert opinion using my own non-standard, non-technical description. I thought the blue had a bigger,...

    More on doubling

    Has anyone used the book Low Brass Player's Guide to Doubling by Micah Everett? If so, how useful is it for a euphonium player doubling on tuba?
