The home page of what was for 32 years (1971-2003; 124 issues, over 1200 articles) the world’s premiere international brass magazine. The Brass Bulletin magazine itself is no longer published, but this site has a link to online archives where you may order back issues. The BB home page is entitled Brass Bulletin News, which includes an international “Brass Calendar” and links to articles, CDs, links for brass players (e.g. links to 36 brass instrument makers), new publications and its publishing company (Editions BIM/The Brass Press). Very attractive site – kudos to Jean-Pierre Mathez (one of the most remarkable men I’ve ever met – J.A.) and to Jeremy Mathez, web site whiz and fine horn player to boot.
