Re: The Bunker

They used only their small groups, not the full concert band; they did a set of popular music, then the big band took the stage. The full band never played. They may have been double-booked and had to split the band. I've seen that happen with Navy Band Southwest. I haven’t kept up on all of the na...

Re: Beginner Euphonium

Tell them to not rent or buy a Euphonium!! Rent or borrow one directly from the school. Unless if they are in a really impoverished district the school will have horns. Renting a Euphonium from a music store or buying one is a huge investment and is a waste of money in the long run. Euphs aren't li...

Making a Bach 50BL W/ Olsen Valves

I'm a rather tall guy with big hands. When I started playing more bass trombone a few years ago, I found an Olds P-22. Now the stock trigger on this horn wasn't wonderful, so by referral, I hopped on the ferry to see Benn Hansson. That lead to the subject horn being created. Sure, the bell is a litt...

Does that mean you have a pair of Shires rotors that are currently underutilized?

Work looks great, BTW.

Re: What`s your "GO TO" Brand ?

Bach 50BL with Olsen rotaries, Olds P-22, Yamaha Xeno 882O. I prefer the lightweight horns. I play mostly bass, and I play the Olds as much as I can. However, the 50BL is always close by...... There’s a 72H and a Jinbao alto somewhere in the closet.... I hope they stay there.....

Re: Home Improvement: Gutter cleaning

I guess being 6’11” has some advantages. I just use a single step stool, just to see the trough, and scoop it out. I live out here in the Seattle area. Lots of fur trees. Takes me about an hour to go round trip. I do it in March and October.

Re: flying with a bass trombone/Cases

Sure, you’re screwed flying an older 737, or a regional jet with an Eastman. But flying on the larger, newer ones, there’s no problems. The key is getting to the gate early, and being nice. To keep the horn from moving around in the case, try rolling some old T-shirt’s and taping them. Do a screwbel...
