    You have a tough job ahead! I have yet to find a quick & easy way to dependably choose a mouthpiece. Having said that, I think there are two paths:

  3. Sticky: FS: Conn 14-i Lacquer 3-Valve Euphonium - BARGAIN

    Please look this over - the only "interesting" damage I see is the back of the bell. That should be easy to fix if you are so inclined. There some other minor dents, but otherwise the horn looks to...

    Congratulations on winning the horn!

    The leadpipe probably just needs to be re-plated. A good repair shop could remove it; then it might need to be sent out for plating.

    As far as dent work,...
  8. FS: Willson 2975 4-Front-Valve Compensating Euphonium

    VERY fine 2975 just listed. I see nothing wrong with the appearance. It comes with a modified hard case that has wheels. The original medium-shank receiver has been replaced with a large size. It...

    That might make me hesitate as well. However, the price is pretty low, and it MIGHT play fine. My main concern is the large patch of plating damage that is right alongside a port.

    Photos might help some folks add some information, and without them the value is impossible to guess.

    I think most players try to evoke a solemn mood and play according to their sense of that. In general, the Army is the authority on such matters, and their sound sample has vibrato:

    The page says it fits all French-made Bessons. I tend to think of Bessons as having been made in England until bankruptcy, and now in Germany. Was/is there a French phase in there?
