Hi. I was asked to play in a new ballet suite specially written for this ballet company. The composer was there to supervise.  He started the trombone parts in bass clef and he kept changing the part to treble. When I explained the situation to him he was able to understand what he had done as he had no idea of the implications of writing for trombones and he fixed the problem. I was able to play the part but the other players had no idea what to do until I explained it to them. As Robcat says C in the C space in the treble clef sounds C on the trombone but the pitch is an octave higher.

Is there any rotary bass trumpet with large bore (or at least large shank) and 4 valves? Or to put it another way: a rotary baritone horn wrapped in bell-front design?

Thanks, Andy.  I was under the impression that it was out of print.  John Mason referred me to the same retailer.  Iíve got an order in with them now, and hopefully that means Urbie may get some kind of royalty from it.  Iím hoping that doesnít turn out to just be wishful thinking.

For information, the transition from Bb to C trumpets in orchestras occurred around 1920.  I have a picture of the Boston Symphony Brass from 1921.  Principal Georges Mager and Joseph Mann hold C trumpets. Louis Klopfer holds a Bb, and I can't tell what Gustave Perret holds.  All of the principal trumpets before Mager (who was named Principal in 1919) played Bb trumpets.

Lol. All these responses trying to define breath support and they mostly talk about breathing in. Sure you gotta breathe in. But that's the easy part.

White water stains are fairly rich in calcium and are generally tough to remove.

As a first try I'd go with Windex or another window cleaner.

If you have black stains on brass, they are generally pretty deep and you need to polish them out (if you can).  They are copper oxide or copper sulfide.

I think its the word "large" that is the clue here. Let me explain. Its about more "volume". Bigger mouthpieces, bigger horns, more volume. LOUDER. Younger people buy that easy but I understand them. Everything is louder today. Orchestras is bigger and I understand the  trombonists in the big orchestras try to adjust. I was in cinema with my small child, its extremely high sound even it is movie for small children. Listen the advertisement on TV, its extremely high volume.

Its sad because there is a limit what the human ear can take. Its sad because with louder sounds, the colour, the excitement, the nuances in the sounds is lost. And then also musical nuances. But nobody can stop that development before the human ear say stop.

So I understand both pro and amateurs that want "large" Just so sad we loose the delicate, colourful and interesting sound......but we have a choice.
