Not wanting to derail the original thread too much but I cam across this recording of Gustav Holst conduct the LSO in The Planets recorded in 1926  :-0

Makes Interesting listening https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W5lPMRCTJAs



Excellent find. Mars is fast! Rocketing along - not to my personal taste to be so fast. And the whole recording is not very accurate in many places... The LSO of today would not be happy releasing such a performance...! Amazing how professional standards have risen. Agree with Sam - little trombones played big - which was after all the local style - showing how to use that equipment to work in this piece - projection rather than heft. Note that there are various places where the trombone sound adds pleasing things to the mix that large bores just can't do the same way - e.g. much of Jupiter and the big opening of Uranus. I wonder who the tenor tuba player was? A euph pulled in from the brass band world? Was Alex Mortimer the usual suspect for the LSO? Doesn't sound anywhere near enough polished enough playing for the stellar reputation he's left to history, though, and I thought he'd headed north before 1926.

I second the Wessex, and also the Yamaha. YBL-620G to be specific. Double rotor, comes with Eb and D slide, and not that expensive.

I was afraid of that. Guess I'll give it to my tech.

Tried... but what did it actually sell for? Or did it even sell?
AFAIK, it never sold. I don't think Steve Dillon ever expected it would; it was more of an attention-getter than anything else. Of course, if someone had come along with a quarter of a million dollars...

The ability to deliver the necessary amount of air to produce the desired sound with the least amount of physical effort. This needs to be done consistently and sustainably with regards to the player’s anatomy as well as appropriately for musical expression.

That sounds dry but I think covers the bases.
