As my signature states - only one instrument.... etc Its not exactly true. As most of you know I love playing my Xeno, and its an ideal instrument for jazz, playing in church whatever. However, I have recently started going along to a local brass band and sitting on the back row. I play along to 2nd or 3rd parts. This I am happy to do as I am keen to develop my timing and the more technical side of playing, plys the band are a great bunch and I have some friends there. The Xeno in this setting perhaps a bit too bright and in your face, stands out too much when at my level I would prefer to blend in. I picked up a nearly new Amati (Czech) cornet at a boot sale for a few quid and someone just gave me a battered Lafleur. I can get away with playing the Amati at the band but am considering a slightly better cornet for using at the band. Can pick up a used Yamaha 2330 or similar for a reasonable cost... Any thoughts?
