Uck...you have too many trumpets. You should have an equal amount of trumpets and t-bones and more tubas.

108. There is no possible way I could say exactly how many play each instrument. However, I do know we have 2 xylophonists, and around five tubas.

When I was in High School we had 50 members in our marching band, around 6 trumpets, 5 trumbones, 1 bass trumbone, 2 baritones, 4 horns, 1 tuba, and the rest woodwinds and percussion

When I got to college I about died over because we had 12 count em 12 horns, and we rocked it hard playing really nifty rip trills in Barbarian Horde from the Gladiator sound track
