    Yes, it fits fine. There is no extra room, but that may be a good thing for protection (so the horn does not slide around inside the bag). The Conn was a longer horn, I believe.
  2. Sticky: FS: Lovely Cronkhite Leather Gig Bag - 2-Tone

    This is the same bag I use and love, except this one is prettier! It is a medium-brown/black combination and the seller says it has been professionally refurbished. The top-grain leather is...

    I have had similar problems with the various horns I've owned. I have a theory that each player's body chemistry affects the valves differently. It is that same body chemistry that causes some of us...
  5. Sticky: FS: B&H Imperial EEb Tuba - Restored Valves/Slides

    This is pretty interesting! This came from an era where B&H was unmatched. It is the 14" bell version and IS compensating. Finish is in good shape, but not pristine. Price is $3,500.

    No, I'm thinking of The Swan for sure, but perhaps I was mentally comparing a Swan recording from a different tape where Steven also played with a brass band.

    Welcome to the forum!

    Once your horn is fixed up, you might like it so much you would not feel like buying one. The older Bessons can be very nice. Noisy valves can be fixed with some Mead springs...

    I was able to find the episode on the Roku channel. Haven't watched the series much, but this was a nice diversion. Gotta say, I don't recall seeing a female Salvation Army officer with such striking...

    It was not unnoticed by me, but I decided to list it. The horn looks like new, and of course they don't make them now. If someone is a HB fan it might be worth it. The HB was always my second choice...

    Welcome to the forum!

    This raspy tone... Is it unpitched? (Some people have an "octave buzz" that adds a lower octave.)

    Because you said "raspy" I assume it is a sound much different from...

    A specific example from tokuno might be interesting. However, I'm sure we all agree that NO horn is perfect; they all have quirks.

    Beats me! It seems they almost had an identity crisis for a while. When I became a Besson Artist in 1980-ish they had had a plan to market the brass in the USA as "Besson" and in the UK as "Boosey &...

    That's a very nice piece! The band is pretty large and plays very nicely together. I also enjoyed the "head choreography" that seemed to emphasize the swoops in the music!

    My first question is...WHERE is it stuck exactly? Is it "halfway" through the leadpipe? Or could it be stuck in the first valve or beyond?
