    I just reweighed my Adams E3, Sterling Silver bell, .6 mm, trigger, AGR and no mouthpiece (I may have included this in the weight I gave in my review 3 years ago). It came in at 10 pounds, +/- .25...

    Barry - I think you are absolutely right. I didn't even think about that, but I should have. I would be curious to know how the Hirsbrunner compares with an Adams E3 overall, not just the power...

    I owned a Hirsbrunner around 1998. I honestly can't remember the model number, but it was top of the line, 4 valve, compensating, silver plate. It was a honey of a horn. I just now took a look at...

    Quite right you are, Dean!! The tuba sits most of the time (brass quintet/ensemble 2 or 3 times a year), but both trombones get used for two different year round symphony orchestras, and the Adams...

    Well, I don't use any foot rest or lap pillow with the euphonium, although I admit when I play guitar (in a guitar flute duet), I do use a footrest. For the euphonium, I just simply like it so much,...

    Jim,

    Pretty much what I have heard from everyone who has attended. When we went there looking for out next place to live (Lousiville), it was not quite when the camps happened, so I did not get...

    I think the E1 is just a bit "lighter" than the E3. Now I am pretty sure Dave Werden finds the E3 easier to play (but just by a little I suspect) and he is, in my opinion, the ultimate source for E1...

    I would look at an Adams E1 (yellow brass bell, .55 or .60 metal) and I would also look at a Yamaha 642II Neo (which I have played and they are very nice and responsive).

    An Adams E3, but wait, I seem to have one already. Fortunately, I had quite a bit of equity in the previous horn I sold, so I didn't have to cough up the full price of the Adams.
