Worried

I’m worried about the amount of activity on here, sometimes I feel like I’m posting at the bottom of threads and no one else is chiming in. I don’t know what the traffic is on here compared to the forum ,but I would like this to be way more active than the forum. We need to get every trombonist into...

Re: Horn stand when you go home

I usually keep my horns on hercules like this except my concert horn and I usually put it in the case because I dont like the Idea of something constantly being pushed in the bell and I dont trust my crudy in bell stand.

Re: Nailing a note in the middle of nowhere

Congrats on it going well !! I enjoyed this thread lots of good advice I agree completely with just locking in on the pitch Ive had times where if I was worried I would hum the note to myself before I played it of course this only works if other people are playing to drown you out. Air support is al...

John Fedchock sounds good on anything! As long as you like that style. I've never played that horn. I can say that Jupiter used to be regarded as a very budget-oriented (crappy) brand, and by all accounts they've really turned that around. I hear most of their newer stuff is quite good, and I would...

They asked my proffe...
