    Did you buy your horn new? If not, it's possible the pad on top of the piston is no longer doing its job. Bounce is controlled by the density/etc. of the top pad in combination with the springs. In...

    Welcome to the forum and to the wonderful world of valves!

    Tuning to A is not good for euphonium. Many brands are flat on the A - some by a little and some by a lot. Use Bb to set your main tuning...
  9. Sticky: FS: Besson New Standard 3-Valve Compensating Euphonium in Silver

    This type of horn can be great for many users. Lighter than a 4-valve version and allows in-tune use of 3-valve fingerings. Most community bands, for example, would not require a range to low for a...

    Sneak Peek: New Series of Arrangements

    Some previous arrangements I have done are partly to give people a chance to play fun music when there is no ensemble handy. For example, my settings of Holst 2nd Suite and the Bydlo for euphonium...
