14/20, won't be winning needless to say :(

These quizzes are fantastic though, and this one was definitely harder than the last, at least IMO

Thanks for participating!

It's fun making them! I try to find a level of difficulty so everyone finds a challenge. I realize the Brass Band question may be too hard... :-)

I couldn't get the site to centre on my screen, so couldn't read the quiz questions.

Sorry for that Chris. Are you on a desktop or on a mobile device?

I was looking for questions like “Can you play b flat at the top of bass clef staff in 1st position?” :-(

I got 11/20 but I guessed on most of them. Do they have trombones in Europe? :-)

It was fun. Thanks.

I saw your quiz on Facebook today, didn't even know until now that it was mentioned here as well. I scored 20/20, but was quite surprised myself! I'll confess: it's a combination of nerdiness, combined with working in a music shop and a few really lucky guesses. I didn't have a perfect score on your first quiz though :roll:

No hard feelings if you disqualify me! I mean: we have a Swissbone in stock and I'm quite sure most people haven't even heard of it. So I had an unfair advantage. Being Dutch didn't hurt either :shuffle: Thanks for the entertaining quiz!

Being Dutch is of course unfair!

I got 18/20, but must admit that one answer was a lucky guess. Kudos to those who got 20/20!

Yes! An imaginary Thein BvD bass trombone. Has a thundering low range and a high range like a piccolo!

Nice! Just what I've always wanted. I can almost imagine practicing it!

Ok, so I missed out on this quiz round, but I'll be watching for the next one (while I'm not imagining that I'm practicing).
