International Trombone Association
Founded in 1972, the ITA is "dedicated to the Artistic Advancement of Trombone Teaching, Performance, and Literature." With over 4,000 members, the organization welcomes trombonists of all ability levels, including professional performers and teachers as well as amateurs and enthusiasts. The ITA Journal is a quarterly publication mailed to all members (or it can be read online!), and contains both scholarly and popular articles, in addition to sheet music and recording reviews, recital programs, and more. The International Trombone Festival, an annual event sponsored by the ITA, brings together trombonists from all over the world for concerts, masterclasses, exhibits, and competitions.

International Tuba-Euphonium Association
Formerly known as the Tubists Universal Brotherhood Association (TUBA), the ITEA "is a worldwide organization of musicians whose purpose is to maintain a liason among those who take a significant interest in the instruments of the tuba and euphonium family - their development, literature, pedagogy, and performance." This site offers membership information, information on the International Tuba-Euphonium Conference, information about the ITEA Journal (which also can now be read online!), and a few announcements.

The Online Trombone Journal
The OTJ features articles, reviews, job and audition announcements, classified ads, and other resources useful to trombonists.

The Trombone Forum
Formerly a part of the Online Trombone Journal, TTF is a great place to learn useful (and sometimes not so useful) information about trombone and low brass playing (and other things).

Douglas Yeo
Douglas Yeo, bass trombonist of the Boston Symphony Orchestra, offers hundreds of pages of free information relevant to all trombonists (alto, tenor, and bass) on his website. Evidences of Doug's Christian faith are also visible throughout the site.

Trombone Excerpts
Back in the "old days" we had to purchase scores, parts, and recordings when we wanted to study orchestral trombone parts and prepare for auditions. It is still a good idea to have those things, but this site does provide images of some of the most commonly-asked trombone excerpts, along with multiple recordings of those excerpts by some of the world's leading orchestras and conductors.

Steven Mead
British euphonium virtuoso Steven Mead has established an extremely varied and useful site devoted to his instrument. Euphonium-related articles, literature lists, and similar information are provided free of charge, and an online store allows for purchase of sheet music, recordings, and accessories.

This site, maintained by former US Coast Guard Band solo euphoniumist David Werden, offers many free articles and listings. The Euphonium Music Guide found here is especially useful.

Although it offers mostly tuba-specific information, this site, maintained by United States Army Band tubist Sean Chisham, can be a good resource for trombone and euphonium players.  The most notable aspect of this site is the TubeNet BBS, a discussion forum for tuba and euphonium-related issues.

S.E. Shires
Dr. Everett owns tenor and bass trombones from S.E. Shires, a maker of high-end custom and modular trombones and trumpets based in the Boston, MA, area. Dr. Everett's large-bore tenor trombone has a 7GLW bell, seamed yellow brass tuning slide, standard rotor, TW47 slide, and 2L leadpipe.
His bass trombone has a BI 7RGM bell, BYC tuning slide, dual inline axial-flow valves, B62 slide, and B3L leadpipe.

Doug Elliott Mouthpieces
Doug Elliott runs an essentially one-man operation making modular, three-part mouthpieces for trombone, euphonium, tuba, and various other low brass instruments. For those who can't seem to find a stock mouthpiece that "fits," Doug can devise and produce an appropriate mouthpiece combination relatively quickly, and affordably. Dr. Everett owns and plays several Doug Elliott mouthpieces.

Hickey's Music Center
Located in Ithaca, New York, Hickey's offers a full selection of sheet music and accessories for brass instruments. 

Just For Brass
A relatively new store, Just For Brass is another good resource for sheet music and accessories.

Ferguson Music
A small specialty shop in the L.A. area operated by freelance trombonist Steve Ferguson. While his selection and speed do not always equal that of larger stores, Steve is VERY knowledgeable and helpful, taking great pride in each customer's satisfaction. He also carries quite a few items not available at many stores, most significantly quite a large selection of S.E. Shires trombones and trombone components.

Dillon Music
A larger brass specialty shop located in New Jersey. Excellent service, knowledgeable and helpful staff, and great selection. Dillon's is one of the only U.S. dealers of Michael Rath trombones.

The Woodwind and the Brasswind
In many ways one of the "old standard" mail-order and now online music stores, WWBW has a large selection of instruments and accessories for players of any instrument, at any level.
