    Here's what an 8H leadpipe looks like. That is not an off-the-shelf attachment for the 90G.

    I doubt I have anything useful to add, but here's the take of a nerd that just likes playing anything remotely resembling a brass instrument.

    I always called the British sound a "tone bath". The...

    I agree with the others. Mute seems like the worst option. Aimed away sounded really good. But like euphlight said...if you're still not satisfied, use less horn.

    And none of that confirms whether or not the 90G has the Remington shank receiver, nor does it provide enough information to reproduce the 24-I/25-I shank without an example of the either the adapter...

    Because no one ever documents anything. The only people who any information about anything specific like this are the people who actually own the item and know the required information about it. ...

    I'm not sure if Conn actually called the other shank sizes Remington or that's just poor documentation. I thought they were all the same name for a while, but have since given up on the idea.

    According to this, it's .281" (7.1mm). Sure took a while to find it, though. :confused:

    I maintain what I said on YouTube. Maybe the microphone isn't telling the whole story, but the Doubler sounds really similar to the old Bessons, to me. Not my favorite Euphonium sound, but I liked...

    For reasons unbeknownst to me, the 44E4 is actually shallower than the 51D. It's very similar to the old Besson 10, if you've ever seen one of those. Besson 10 has a better (larger) throat. ...

    If you want something small and deep, try a Schilke 44E4. It's deeper than the 6.5AL, similar cup diameter to the 12C, and has a good rim for small embouchure. Throat isn't as large, obviously. ...

    The crazy looking thing is what Miraphone calls a Python Tuba

    The other instruments are a single Tenorhorn and a Baritone.

    As for wrapped Euphonium, yeah, there have been Helikonform...

    I looked it up. Looks like a really old Chinesium rebrand. Probably Jinbao or Jinyin.

    What mouthpiece are you using? I haven't had the luxury of encountering a piston horn that's so sensitive...

    I've always been a fan of Lexan and Perspex. IMO, it plays like a heavier mouthpiece and gives a softer feel on the lips without any tone difference. Sadly, I haven't really ventured into owning...

    I'm late to the party, but that's because I've been thinking about how to really respond to this. I'm not even as much of a musician as I was in high school, but that's what being away from playing...

    A lot of the reason that Euphonium and Trombone mouthpieces overlap is that the two instruments have similar tendencies in mouthpiece behavior and players are often looking for the same results. Not...

    Pretty much anything can have some amount of effect on a brass instrument. How much? Heck if I know. My school band director, who was and still remains a professional Trumpet player, had a horn...
  19. How to: Mouthpiece for 13mm receiver Tuba (Eb Bass/Contrabass Saxhorns)

    Yeah, there's probably some venders that sell this sort of thing, but if you know exactly what you need, then you don't have the scour the internet to find a guy that says he thinks he knows.

    So,...

    Anything I can do to get some more useful information besides spend another $5k on horns and measuring equipment?

    (Except for whatever goofy thing H.N. White used on the Trombonium)

    Now what? I don't have horns to test all of them on because I don't have anything bigger than medium shank (yet).

    There have...

    French Horn is a pretty terrible instrument to start on. I wouldn't recommend it to anyone. It's much better if you already have a skill set that...

    I've never played any such beast. My weapons of choice tend to run the low end of three digits. I do, however, have a suggestion. Try some earmuffs or an ear plug and cover/protect the ear closest...
