<r>How do you 'play' animal sounds on a Trombone?<br/> <br/> A couple months ago our brass ensemble played "Markham Fair Suite" where the trombones are asked to simulate a cow sound.  The written music called for us to play a low note (F# at the bottom of Bass Clef if I recall correctly).  We really...

<t>Since new, my 60s-era Olds Super with the supplied Olds 3 has a resonant 'buzz' from approximately middle C-F.  I had the slide tuned and lacquer redone without improvement.  Tried another Olds 3 and no improvement.  No buzz when I play the same horn with a SS Bach 5 or 6 1/2.<br/> <br/> I tried ...

Plastic Mouthpiece for 30°F Concert... Worth It?

I have the pBone 5G and 6 1/2 black plastic mouthpieces (purchased from Dillon's) and find the tone isn't very good.  May be OK for outdoor Christmas Carols, but you may be disappointed with the sound.  Mine are now relegated to buzzing practice in the car.  YMMV.  Good Luck.
