"The last of the new instruments for the Belfast Band has arrived. It is a double b bass, made in Austria, and will be played by W. B. Wadsworth. It is of lower tone, by one fourth, than any instrument ever before owned in Belfast, and with one exception of an instrument used only in the largest metropolitan bands, the lowest toned band instrument made. The other new instruments are four altos, one baritone and one tuba, made in England, and a piccolo made in France."
