Re: Is .547 a catch-all?

Yes, another player who uses a bass slide and plays wonderfully in their stream of performing in the world. Cool. And out of the hundreds of thousands of students in the world-who will get his job, the dream job, one day? ONE. And so they will play a .547 in a practice room and in the concert hall....

Re: 3B vs 3BSS

Sterling Silver is more valuable and I guess it's easier to get a thick buttery sound out of........ Looks fancy too ;-)

I find the regular 3B easier to colour, easier to play lead on and generally easier to play and blend with other instruments!

Re: 3B vs 3BSS

I like both however the Brass 3B is more versatile.
I've owned and played a few of both and the Brass version always won!
I still have and play my very first King 3B (1976) It's a great versatile horn.

Ask yourself, how many Pro name players do you know that play a SS 3B? :idk:

Re: Finding the custom horn for me

Anyone remember the Inderbinnen Piccolo? Briefly a Holy Grail for some. I’d like to go on a trip to Europe that combined concert halls, soccer stadiums and trombone makers.

Yes, best 6&3/4 mpc I've tried but as with the Bach and the Yamaha Landgren I didn't get along with the rim profile! The biggest fattest sound of the three.

Re: Dave Horler

Not sure wether he's still in Germany Andy but he retired a few years ago from the WDR Big Band to be replaced first by Michael Dease for about a year and now Andy Hunter who's been there for the past 3 years.
He may well be back in the UK but not sure....... Or he may have stayed, Mark N might know?

If you visit Inderbinen, take a LOT of money. I teased one TTF member about his Inderbinen. He loved the horn, but had to give it up because it was heavy.
