Yamaha Silent Brass

Hey there, I have a Yamaha Silent Brass. The electrical contact in the mute itself is spotty but works. It can get a bit crackly. I imagine a drop of solder would fix that. The electronic box itself is great. Batteries not included, dude. http://i1031.photobucket.com/albums/y375/sliphorn76/For%20Sal...

Re: Bass Trombones In Marching Band?

I don't think model or configuration matter too much for marching-band-specific needs. I marched a Bach 50 and a Holton because that's what we had. I enjoyed that very much. I suppose cost is the big thing these days, and maybe band directors are opting for cheaper stuff.

Re: My daughter's progress thread

Great!

That being said, the 51D is an awfully deep mouthpiece for trombone. It can also hide sound issues. In other words, the shallower the mouthpiece the easier it is to make a "bad" sound, but it's possible to make a great sound on something much shallower than a 51D.
