Where do we play?

Agree with the semi-pro.  Also, under community band would be interesting to break that down to traditional band, jazz band, orchestra and pit band.

Can you compare your thoughts regarding the similarities/differences between a 1YLW and a 1YT7 bell?  Is the response similar? 

Are they more alike then different?

Are the F-attachments for tenor available in a closed configuration vs. an open setup for tighter spaces.  If so, is the cost the same?

For those that have played this book (bass/tenor double?) how did you like the music?

Have an opportunity to play it, but not sure I want to spend the time.  Much depends on the music itself.

What do you think?  Play it?
