I agree with others that a dedicated device that solved many of these problems would be nice, but the market for such a device is likely too small.
There are attempts at such a thing out there already. Crazy expensive, though:

By the way, it's the ONLY Hetman product I use. I stay away from the various Hetman valve oils.
Why? (Just curious.)

Re: Screw Rim vs Solid state

Most of us don't spend a lot of time switching off parts of modular mouthpieces (at least we shouldn't). Once you get a combination that works, tighten it up and use it. I switch parts daily. I'm using the same rim with different cups and shanks for small bore and large bore horns. Isn't that the w...

Re: Schumann Konzertstück for 4 horns - trombone part

Dress rehearsal yesterday. It's very hard to tell how the balance was in that passage; the distance to the soloists is huge (we're on opposite ends of the stage, really). I only heard myself. Not much feedback from the conductor, and when I asked the second Horn soloist afterwards what he thought ab...

Re: New Forum Suggestion

Who else thinks that feature would be useful? I would find this very, very useful. With the one big thread in "Performance", the risk I see is that this is a one-off thing that dies down after a while. And even if it doesn't, and people do post again about their progress after a few weeks, it's har...

Hey Leif, it's good to see you here! I'm surprised that there isn't a loud cheering welcome from the old TTF crowd seeing your first post here, so you'll have to be content with mine, even though you probably don't know me. But I read and enjoyed many of your posts on TTF. I like these recordings, v...

Re: Schumann Konzertstück for 4 horns - trombone part

For your first question, my answer is this : does it really matter? No, it totally doesn't. It was really just curiosity, I should have mentioned that. I don't have an alto trombone anyway and I've never played one. I guess I was mainly curious how well that passage in the 2nd movement could be pla...

Schumann Konzertstück for 4 horns - trombone part

We have the Schumann Concert Piece for four horns coming up in our next programme (with four members of the Berliner Philharmoniker horn section doing the solo parts, I'm very excited about that; but that's not why I'm posting ;) ). I have two questions about the alto trombone part: 1) Is it meant t...

Re: Lexan Rim

The condition of the skin, and especially timing of shaving, has been important to me for that same reason. It doesn't bother me much lately but if I play too soon after shaving the Lexan feels like it's glued to my chops. Interesting. I usually shave in the morning and practice in the evening, so ...

Re: Lexan Rim

Thanks for the elaborate response! 1) Facial hair, if applicable. That can't be it. I can't stand having any hair between my skin and my mouthpiece, so I always shave thoroughly, daily. 2) Humidity & Lip Balm Usage. In the winter, I tend to use more chop saver than I normally do. Me too, but not ver...

Lexan Rim

I have been playing on a Lexan rim (DE 102) for almost two years now, and I have been happy with it most of the time; I think I mostly liked the grip that's a little stronger than what I was used to with my silver mouthpiece before. Lately, however, it happened a few times that I feel it is too grip...

Lehár, Merry Widow

Has anybody played the Merry Widow? I might have a chance to play it later this year, but I'd like to know how much there is to play for trombones, or how difficult it is. Or does anybody happen to have a first or second trombone part that they could e-mail me? On IMSLP there's only a piano reductio...

Re: Bone socks? (for stands, not feet)

I'll still advocate for the Hamilton Bone Sock . They work perfectly on each of my stands (Hamilton, K&M, On-Stage). Absorbent micro fiber, soft and bell-protective, no more bell sticking to the stand dome, easy to apply (and stays with your stand). Accomplishes everything these do-it-yourself tric...

Re: Jazz "play along"

I second the recommendation for iReal Pro, I use it a lot, and it's very nice. Of course it's not the same as playing along with real musicians, but the advantages outweigh this (being able to set the tempo and key, or change some chords), and the musical quality isn't bad at all. Apart from that, I...

Re: Board structure

I totally agree that a structure that is too fine-grained should be avoided. In this particular case though, I feel that there's just no place in the current structure to discuss topics related to how to perform brass music, which for me is one of the most important topics to talk about. And "Music ...

I'm missing a few boards that we had in TTF, and I'm unsure where else I should post topics in the existing board structure. The main one is "Performance". I'm thinking about topics such as - Should Brahms symphonies be played on an alto or tenor - Does it make sense to substitute the tuba in a bras...
