    Love the video on website introducing the band. Such a lovely sound, amazing ideas expressed, and two people who really love to perform. Wow.

    Contrast to the amount of woodwinds I own, I'm really not doing so well in the doubling department compared to the rest of you! Lol

    I've doubled on:

    Bassoon
    Contrabassoon

    Pretty standard... Although right now I'm learning the oboe, and hope to join the community band, which I'd play with alongside playing the bassoon in the community orchestra.

    I own/rent and play:
    Eb, Bb, Bass Clarinets,
    Alto, and Tenor Saxes

    I have access to and would play:
    Alto, Contrabass Clarinets,
    and Baritone Saxophone

    ...I need to work on getting a double reed in that list.

    Picc, flute and alto flute
    Sop, alto and tenor saxes
    Eb and Bb clarinet
    oboe

    I used to be a low reed player: bari, bassoon, bs clt and clarinet....sometimes flute....I decided to focus on high reeds...mainly, because it was too darn difficult to carry all them big horns to the gig. Playing Reed 1, I can fit the picc, flute and alto flute into a backpack (with a stand or two) and keep an alto in my hand, with soprano over the shoulder.

    Since alto flute is so rare, I can fit the clarinet and oboe into the backpack.

    I'm new to the forum. My main instrument is saxophone (sop/alto/tenor) but I can also double on piccolo/flute, clarinet, oboe and bassoon. Non standard doubles are penny whistle, Irish flute, uilleann pipes, and recorder (sop/alto/ten/bass). I just finished playing for a local community theater's music (Joseph) - the last time I played for a musical was over 30 years ago. I forgot how fun it was! I am hoping to play more in the future.
