I use an older DEG marching trombone which was made by Willson. I think it is smaller bore than the rest of the marching trombones which gives it a bit more of the edge of the standard bass trumpet. I've set it up with a 3rd slide kicker to help with the intonation. It seems to be an OK alternative to the more exotic trumpet. Janacek Symphonietta offers a great opportunity for me to make some doubling off of it. Tuba doesn't play on the movements with bass trumpet. Unfortunately it comes up only about once every seven years.
