    And, of course, as my good friend Don knows, I want to play with the British sound, so the Sterling just amplifies the sound I hear in my head!

    No. All Sterlings will tend to exhibit intonation tendencies similar but perhaps slightly better than a Besson (Sovereign or Prestige). Use of the trigger is recommended.

    I do not know what the difference between the HBS378 and HBS479 are. This horn has the screw in receiver, so you can use small, medium or large shank mouthpieces. I am pretty certain that the 1st...

    The 6BS is an excellent baritone mouthpiece. I believe this is what Katrina Marzella uses. It is my personal 2nd choice after the Bach 5G.

    Only way to tell is by the model number inside the bell down near the joint with the bottom bow. A 1065 is standard weight bell. A 1065H has a heavy bell.

    Not a huge difference between the two....

    Wendy,

    VERY nice looking instrument. This horn definitely would be significantly superior to any JP374/JP374 horn.

    It is a pretty recent instrument with the current (new) style trigger design...

    I spoke with Paul Riggett and with Baltimore Brass this last Friday (both). They have three Sterlings sent out by Paul about 2 weeks ago. Two "regular" Virtuoso's (1065) and a heavy bell (1065H).

    Sara,

    The British baritone's degree of conical tubing and bell taper is more like a cornet while the euphonium is more like a flugelhorn. This is the most apt comparison. The American baritone is...

    Hirsbrunner are fine horns. They used the Bauerfeind valvesets AFAIK which are very well made. If so, parts (guides, felts, etc.) can be sourced from Adams. If the horn is in good-excellent...

    Nick,

    It looks great! I should add that the body of the horn and the 24i bell are 100% original. This horn really is in great shape. I am glad you own it now, Nick!

    Nick,

    I think Barry's goal is a horn for every day of every week of every month of every year! He is truly is an outlier. Don't forget the pipe organ as well and a few cute alpacas to boot!

    You have too many horns! Now looking at a York Eminence??? BTW, I heard your 25i bell is being lacquered today. I want a picture of the horn with the reurbished bell on it.
