WHY DOES STAINLESS STEEL MATTER IN A MOUTHPIECE?

When you buzz into a brass mouthpiece (i.e., when you are playing your instrument), the mouthpiece itself is vibrating in all directions as your embouchure vibrates. Correspondingly, the louder you play, the more unwanted vibration you create (which creates an “edge” in your sound, and further limits your highest dynamic levels). When your mouthpiece vibrates excessively, then less of your sound/effort transmits through the instrument. Quite simply, these vibrations cause you to lose sound and energy before your sound even makes it into your horn. By vastly reducing mouthpiece vibration, more of YOU is going into your instrument!

The question is: If you could instantly gain projection and comfort by upgrading your mouthpiece, would you?
The stainless steel effect is something the low brass world needed to know about. It was, and is, completely revolutionary.
You will immediately gain volume and presence by simply switching from brass to a stainless steel mouthpiece. Period. Couple that with LOUD's innovative, performance-driven designs, and you have the latest, most advanced stainless steel mouthpiece technology available today!

The band is based in Bacup, Lancashire, a small former mill town on the edge of the Pennine Hills midway between Rochdale and Burnley in an area that forms part of the Rossendale Valley. Once a thriving cotton town the decline of the industry now sees many of the surviving mills having changed their products from textiles to footwear with smaller new businesses in the former mills. Historically, the locality has always been a traditional brass band stronghold from as early as the middle of the 19th century.

The Northrop Silver Band was very considerate and sent two CDs to the station. Northrop is ranked 3rd in Wales and 28th in the world. I very community oriented group with a strong outward reach. The organisation of Northop Bands boasts well over 100 musicians within their 120 year old instuition. Both the youth and training bands encourage youngsters from all over Flintshire to participate in this fantastic hobby of music making. Northop Silver Band regret to announce that they have accepted the decision of Musical Director Thomas Wyss to step down as full time Musical Director. Thomas has taken the decision to move on from the role after many highly successful years at the helm of the firmly established and successful Welsh Championship Section Band.

Thomas feels that the time was right to seek new challenges. He aims to continue his association with the Band on an Associate Professional basis in the future. He formally leaves the position after the Grand Shield contest to take up his new position with the Leyland Band.

Northop Band spokesman added: "Whilst sad to lose Tom, we understand the reasons for his decision and we wish him all the best in the future". The Band members are greatly indebted and are thankful for the many years of service that Tom has given the Band which initially started in 1994. He has brought us many memorable performances, not least our recent 2015 Welsh Area qualification performance which has enabled us to compete at the National Finals at the Royal Albert Hall London again for the 5th time under his guidance

LEGAL INFORMATION

Stacks Image 125
To be a legal station in the US, any broadcaster, no matter how big or small, must pay royalties. Bands can register with ASCAP, BMI or SEASAC and receive a royalty check. It would be small, but any band, even if the their CD was donated, can file for royalties.

This makes the station legal under the DMCA 1999 (Digital Millennium Copyright Act of 1999). Hundreds and thousands of people run illegal stations. I prefer to be honest and pay my royalties.

Parts of the DMCI, 1999 is under constantly under legal review. Congress in the US wants the internet to be open. SEASAC wants higher royalties or more control. The Government of the US wants the opposite. So the law changes every so often. But the basic idea of the law has held up for 16 years and is unlikely to change.
