Maestro Javier Colomer has written a superb book about the Contrabass Trombone. This book is extremely well written, interesting, and enlightening. I highly recommend 
”The World of the Contrabasstrombone” to not just trombonists, but to all who are interested in the history and pedagogy of our world of brass. Our thanks go to both Javier Colomer and to Heinrich Thein for this excellent edition.

For anyone at all interested in the Contrabass trombone, this book is a must read!
Javi and Heinrich have written a book that is extremely informative, easy to understand, never gets dry to read and covers nearly every concept I would have thought to include myself!
It is obvious that both Javi and Heinrich share a strong passion for promoting the contrabass. Javi is surely amongst one of the finest players. Both pack a serious amount of experience and knowledge about the contrabass, and have shared as much as they can on each page.
I would recommend this book for any low brass player, or musician full stop! Whether you are a student, professional, music lover or a composer – this book offers something for everyone!
Well done Javi and Heinrich!.

"The World of the Contrabass Trombone" is a truly remarkable resource. Beginning with the historical origins of the contrabass trombone, this book also discusses instrument construction and improvements as well as the role of the contrabass trombone in the standard repertoire. This is also a very practical resource, including everything from warmups, excerpts, and breathing exercises to surveys of the equipment and accessories currently available to contrabass trombonists. Highly recommended!

Este excelente libro debe estar en la biblioteca personal de todo trombonista. Tiene un lenguaje muy claro y fácil de entender. En mi hizo una gran diferencia cuando comencé en el Trombón Contrabajo. Gracias Javi Colomer por esta gran aportación al mundo del Trombón.

Hi Javi I have played many things on my contra from your book and I found that they are very helpful in making Music on the big F trombone. I commend you for your work and effort for this great instrument! As you know my tuning on the trombone is set up to match the motor skills already acquired from years of playing the double valve bass trombone. The German tuning tradition is useless for me and many other people who transfer these skills to a larger instrument. Your comments about the contrabass and it’s the importance of playing in an orchestra and the exercises that you have are great and I really appreciate all you have done for our community! Take Care!
