The British Brass Band is a unique ensemble with a very specific instrumentation. The rich, dark, and mellow tone quality you hear stems from the fact that all the instruments except the trombones, are conically bored in design, permitting the brass band to produce a most distinct and unique sound. Originating in Britain, it is naturally quite popular in the commonwealth countries and has become very popular throughout Europe and the rest of the world.
