    I've been playing euphonium for less than three years. I've always wanted to be a bass player for all the things you mention. I bought a Conn 10J tuba and started playing three weeks ago....

    I have both the King marching trombone and the Blessing marching baritone. I also have many, many mouthpieces. The intonation of each horn is fine. I don't think a 6.5AL is appropriate for either....

    I had the same thing happen. What I didn't realize was that I was used to a rigid slotting experience with a previous mouthpiece. The good and bad with that was with the other mouthpiece I struggled...

    My question is about the fourth valve slide. The one on my King 2280 has two adjustable slides. This allows for a wide range of tuning to use the fourth valve for. Does the Shires have this too?

    When I tried one, I noted a marked issue with some notes in the top of the treble staff and up not sounding easily. Intonation was okay. Tone was not what I was looking for. Price was around $1900....

    I'm confused as to the number of horns. You list four and on the video, it seems there are just three. Did I miss something or am I confused as to different naming for instruments. I like the third...

    My history is all treble clef. I started on trumpet, then took up french horn and then euphonium. For double horn, one must learn to play in F and two sets of fingering for the Bb and F sides. I've...

    Depends on your sound concept and whether you demand a compensating horn. I found the JP not a good match for me. I didn't like it's sound. Many here do. I now have the 2280 and am very happy....

    I saw a feature about a guy who plays flugabone. Apparently Josh Landress makes one with a screw bell. Very compact. Your fix is there. Right? I love my King Flugabone. A blast to play.

    This subject comes up all the time in a trumpet forum. For all the performance oriented people, I always ask the same question. Are you gigging now? Are you involved with outside groups making money?...

    Don't fall into the trap of getting into huge debt for college. If you can't afford it, go to a school you can afford. Student debt follows you for a long time and can make life miserable.

    Regarding the two samples, I felt the second was more open and had a fuller sound palette. The first one sounded constrained or perhaps dampened.
