    So no one has any opinion on this?

    I'm sure Tobylou would go for the hosepipe and funnel?

    And no question, Viennese purity and the Ganter V8 for Barliman

    But what of Rowuk? The cornett perchance?



    Me? No question. The holton bass with a Jettone every time.




    Yes, okay, Peter. If there's a prize to be won, I'll cheat ;-)

    I would use a Furst Pless Horn with 3 valve in Bb. Ventil-Jagdhorn in B. :roll:

    Well I do have a Post Horn with rotary valves, but I would use a Flugel horn IF I was to ever play it.

    Seth, you win - you must have a big shovel to dig that one up.

    Changed my mind. I'd play it on an ophicleide.

    Cheats should not prevail. This one's disqualified from the competition :-)

    It is more secure to use instrument in C or E flat, but I like more to play it in B flat. But I never played that on stage. So, for me it would be posthorn in B flat. If have any chops problems, probably C or E flat.
