    Basic Technics for the Double Valve Bass Trombone

    For use with the inline (independent) or stacked (dependant) double valve bass trombones tuned in Bb/F/Gb/D. This book is one of the first written for the independent setup. The etudes are all technical in nature, and are aimed primarily at working the Fand double F-Gb (D) valve combinations. Mr. Ostrander also points out where the Gb valve can be used alone (inline horns only), though this is less common and often shown as an alternative. Overall the book is quite effective for its stated purpose, though by modern standards it doesn't focus enough on the Gb valve alone. However, any attentive player with five minutes and a pencil can easily mark in all the other Gb valve possibilities. Includes a small position chart for the four horns: straight Bb, single F, double F-Gb (D) and single Gb alone. 84 etudes total over 36 pages. -cdp
