Re: What else do you play??

My primary instrument is trumpet, but early on it was trombone. I played in several groups as a designated "player", either trumpet or trombone. I also play euphonium and bass guitar. Trying to learn guitar, but still in early stages though I have played it out once, led singing in a jail ministry. ...

Re: The frustrations of a 'tweener

It really depends on the musicians in your area. I played in a nearby community band because the was no opportunity in the community I lived in. The biggest issue were the snobish group of folks who ran the group, you couldn't even talk to them. One of the trombones in this group even played in a qu...

Re: Gator GL-Trombone case vs. older ProTec case

Re: In bell trombone stand

I like the Hercules in-bore stand. Beats carrying a stand separately; however, it does add a little weight to your case. After playing and before putting the horn up, I take it out.

Re: Valve Trombone Acceptance

Most recent jazz player I've heard is Kiku Collins with a valve bone. She often doubles on trumpet / v-bone on her various CDs. One is "Here With Me". She has a real nice sound because she has mastered the horn as opposed to a person wanting an easy way to mimic a t-bone without learning the slide a...
