Trombones...mouthpieces...I also name my mutes!

...not to mention all of the stands in band, and the risers we use in jazz...my folders and chairs have names, too. I also name each note in a piece - they belong to the "immediate families" in each measure and the "extended families" up until each rehearsal number/letter.

...I can't remember my name for the life of me, though. Don't know

I hope he was referring to the name of the instrument only and not individual names for them! Eeek! :-0

I have named both of my trombones. My Conn 18H I have owned since middle school and on a high school band trip I met and hung out with a beautiful girl named Connie... So after that trip my 18H became Connie. :/ My Conn 88HO is named Conrad.

Back in high school my Bundy clarinet was Jim, my one piece silver clarinet (Pittfield, I'm too lazy to go look) was Amy.  My Old's valve trombone was Nancy and my Blessing B88 was Tim.  Real original I know....named after my band directors (Tim talked me into switching to bone) and their wives.

My Conn doesn't have a name.  I don't know why, got him in '98.  We name our trucks too, but I can't repeat them here in front of the children.  My friend names all his tubas.

My marching/pep horn is Amber and  my 88H is.... Connor H. Conn :)
Side note:
once me and my director were talking about which horn I should use for what and the high school band director over heard it...

Should I use connor or Amber for jazz, because I knid of want to use amber because she doesn't get out much and might have a faster response but so far I've been using connor.

I don't know delayna  with most people someone like amber would work best but connor is doing great and I don't know if you should swich because you got so used to him.


let's just say that high school band director got a little confussaled

My Olds Special is Emily
My Olds Ambassador is Herkimer (and Shorty is using that one in his band adventure this year)
My Bach alto is Jack
My silver colored sommat or other is "Lamp" (because eventually, it will be more lamp than trombone)

There isn't much that I *don't* name...

My old Holton is Jack. I'm  getting a new one soon, though.
Here's a question: Are trombones masculine or feminine (in concern to naming) ?
I'll take my cue from that venerable old warhorse, "sa Majeste le trombone" by duClos.  (His Majesty the trombone).  "Le" is masculine in French.

That being said, I've named both my horns "bessie"--don't ask me why (well, Bessie I and Bessie II) :D

My 42's name is Baryophiy, which is hebrew for "son of (masculine) goodness and/or beauty" it doesn't totally relate to anything, but, it's pretty cool if you ask me  Yeah, RIGHT.

Some people choose feminine/masculine based on the "I'm kissing this instrument" aspect.  Some choose based on "this instrument makes a feminine/masculine sound" aspect.  Perhaps it's a question of whether the instrument is viewed as a partner or an extension of one's self, too.

I've decided that the 6H I bought from DJ should be named:

Take II

since this is my second horn that I have owned in my life and my second try at playing trombone (with a 30 + year gap between the first and second times)
