    Jazz & Big Band (JABB) Instrument List

    Some of you may have noticed on our web site that we have posted a list of instruments.

    We could add more, but we really need to wrap this up. So we may have to do a JABB Advanced version for that jazz kazoo and multi-velocity dixieland washboard.

    Thanks for your patience. I think that you'll agree that the inclusion of all the extra instruments was worth the wait.

    Here is the list:

    Saxophones

    1 Sopranino saxophone
    1 Mezzo Soprano saxophone
    3 Soprano saxophones (2 straight, 1 curved)
    3 Alto saxophones
    1 C Melody saxophone
    3 Tenor saxophones
    1 Baritone saxophone
    1 Bass saxophone
    1 Contrabass saxophone
    1 Subcontrabass saxophone

    (Plus derivative ensemble band instruments)

    Trumpets


    5 Bb Trumpets (all with extended range, one with extremely extended range), Open, straight mute, cup mute, Harmon mute, bucket mute (& possible plunger mute)
    Flugelhorns
    (Plus derivative ensemble band instruments )


    Trombones

    4 Tenor Trombones & 1 Bass Trombone
    Open, straight mute, cup mute, Harmon mute, bucket mute ( & possible plunger mute).
    (Plus derivative ensemble band instruments)


    Additional woodwinds

    1 Piccolo
    1 Alto Flute
    1 C Flute
    1 Bb Clarinet



    Keyboards

    Steinway B grand piano
    Vintage electric piano



    Basses

    2 Upright acoustic basses
    2 Fretless electric basses
    2 Fretted electric basses



    Guitars

    2 Electric guitars


    Drum Kits

    Stick kit (single head and double head) plus separate instruments (kick, snare, toms, hi-hat, cymbals)
    Brush kit plus separate instruments


    Percussion

    Vibraphone (hard and soft mallets – different from GPO)
    Wide variety of percussion including Latin percussion, bongos, congas, timbales, wood blocks, bells, whistles, etc.

    Ooooh, looks like we're gonna have some fun when it finally gets release. Just trying to imagine some of the stuff I'd love to do with this library.

    So now that the cat is out of the bag, where can we sign up for JABB ADVANCED?

    Gary, get some demos of this thing on the web.

    Once again, I just peed in my pants a little.

    Please put some demos up before I start wetting the bed. I don't think my fiancee would appreciate that. (Have I mentioned I got engaged?)

    When the Garritanator enters new territory, one can only hope that new realism has been achieved.

    So I wonder what those saxes sound like. I would assume something better than what we've heard in other libs.

    But real or not so, still can't wait to get this lib. What an awesome writing tool to have all the instr. under one roof.

    Still wished the multi-vel washboard would have been on this release. I've got tons of clients asking for it. And it's hard to find really sensitive washboard players here.

    Another bad news for my bank account, but a good news for music!!!

    For the advanced version, you might consider to add some acoustic guitars, an electric organ (B3), an harmonica, an accordion, an electric violin, ...

    Looking forward hearing some demos,

    Oh I've a ready purchased and have many "swing" big band classics as well as some dual drumming with Buddy Rich and Gene Krupa! Yeah, there's a lot out there.
    But, I am disappointed in the percussion list ... No "Flexitone". He he
