What brass do I use

often you hear three piece sections of trombone, trumpet and tenor sax. sometimes there are solo parts using one of the above or in fewer cases flute. listen to music by burning spear for great examples of brass riffs. <BR>specifically in dub the melodica is used often, a sort of minikeyboard that needs the players breath to sound.

Thanks <BR>Ive got some sample libraries with loads of brass but I wasnt sure which instruments to use, I knew that trumpets were used a lot but wasnt sure what other brass instruments were layered over the top to give a bigger sound.
