    Yes, you'll get it in Bb. I'm not even sure if it's available for different keys?

    I think that there is one version in Bass Clef...and probably one in F for tubas....not sure though.

    The coil binding is nice on the music stand. I got the red cover version, had the spine cut off and spiral bound into three volumes so I could enjoy using it.

    Did your platinum version come with audio accompaniment?? Real handy!

    I think it's piano accompaniment to the solos at the end. I had my old Arbans book bound at Office Max. They did a horrible job. A think a platinum edition may be in my future...

    If you did not get the CD may I suggest the following CDs 2 CD collection). It has recorded ALL of the exercises in the book. Real handy when you get into the difficult areas.

    Disc 1 has all of the technical exercises

    Disc 2 has the >14 Characteristic Studies
    >Duets
    >Tonguing as Applied to the Trumpet

    I highly recommend this set. A must if you are a hard core Arbans user and want to master the exercises in book correctly.
