The five low brass instruments in the image are: Yamaha 4/4 B-flat Tuba, Getzen David Taylor Model F/D Bass Trombone, Bach 42 Tenor Trombone, Yamaha Student trombone, and Jupiter Baritone.

In case anyone is wondering...this is what these instruments sound like playing together (well...three of them anyway) Rose Family Brass


Post Challenge: Wow! I sure didn't expect this to ribbon yet alone win when I entered it. I imagined it too busy for DPC...Thanks for the scores and the comments (especially the multitude post roll over). I found it interesting to receive only 4 comments during voting with such a score...time to hit the challenges and start commenting again.
