Re: Note tasting

That's called hearing a note. If you have good ears and good internal pitch, you hear it in your head and then make the note happen. Outside of the rabbit hole, notes and music don't have taste. At most, they might have a visual or tactile component, since that's part of playing music. I don't thin...

In this exercise you hear the note, see the note in your mind's eye, and then (breath) attack the note all in good time. I'm going to re watch the vid and experiment with this myself.

Re: Differences Holton 169 verses E185 and TR185

Originally knows as a "Fuchs" model, this single valve bass trombone was one of the first American made large bore and large bell bass trombones and featured tuning in the slide, which was very popular during the day. Designed with Robert Fuchs of the Chicago Grand Opera around 1915, it was markete...

You can't beat the Yamaha stuff, but I find that a spray bottle of 2 parts olive oil and 1 part water works better than slide/valve oil.
Add a little vinegar and you could dress a salad.

Re: Why didn't detachable trombone bells catch on?

What intrigues me is the Lawler trombone and the ability to mix and match different bell stems and bell flares. I imagine that would make a difference on how the horn responds and sounds. Unfortunately, he doesn't make large bore horns and I'm not interested in smaller instruments.
