    I am looking for Colin's Advanced Flexibilites, and Amazon and bookfinder indicate it's out of print. Sam Ash has Advanced Flexibilities by Colin for $15, but it doesn't say complete set, it also doesn't say volume 1, 2, or 3, so I am not sure what it is.

    Does anyone have any info on this?

    Edited - - Never Mind, if I look closer at the cover on Sam Ash's site it says volume 1, 2, and 3, it's just hard to see on my computer - or with my weak eyes.

    I bought the complete set about 20 years ago and I love it. Good luck with it...

    Thanks, I ordered from Sam Ash after all. Looking at the cover more closely it appears to be the right book.

    I own the Flexibilities book and have found it very useful but use it no longer. Now I do flexibilities that echo from the book. Its pretty easy to understand, but when you start, you'll find its a butt buster. Here goes:
    Use all the valve combination
    0
    123
    13
    23
    12
    1
    2
    With these combination,go as high and as low as you can and do bugle-type calls. Work toward a clean sound and speed.
    good luck
