Well, I’ve got a shot of a Bb Bass from the band. It’s certainly different from the baritone – needs a lot more air through it for a start. It’s not just the air though – my embouchure technique, while fine for my baritone, needs to be completely changed. The mouthpiece on the Bass is H U G E and my lips have a tendency to flap around a little too much.
Other that that, it’s a lovely lovely instrument, if a little on the heavy site. Gala days will, I’m sure, prove interesting.
