    Thanks. I've always wondered. The Artisan sounds like a winner.

    How does it compare to the Curry 5G pictured above?

    If you are still looking for a baritone, I'm selling my Eastman. I decided that driving 1.5 hours each way for a band practice was going to be too much. Here's Bente Illevold playing hers.

    I wear a work light that's on a headband. The director really likes it when I look up and spotlight him with it. ;)

    Okay, back to serious answers.

    My foray into baritone happened because a local brass band needed "a true English baritone." I started looking. I remembered Bente Illevold plays an Eastman 311 which is termed a student model....

    Splendid playing. You have convinced me that the Sinfonico is the way to go. Some of the excerpts it sounded as good as the Adams. Some I actually liked it better. Very well done review.

    I've covered the trombone part for years in small jazz bands. I've used a marching french horn, a mellophone and a marching baritone. I've found the closest is a marching baritone. There is also a...

    I find the Sinfonico to be uncomfortably nasal in its tone when listening to all of the reviewers. Maybe it is my ears. Yes, I've listened using both ear buds and good quality speakers. So the...

    Here's a question that occurred to me watching and listening. I noticed that there was quite a change in tone between open notes and when valves were used. Do you notice that also? Is that a Besson...

    Not anymore. Good breath support sort of allows flow across pitch changes. I did have a mouthpiece and horn combination where I would have to give it a little extra to get some notes to speak, but...

    I hesitate to comment as there are experts out there. But aperture control and tongue arch are part of the key. A breathy sound is often due to too open an aperture. Coordinating the two factors will...

    I'm on my way. Lunch sounds great.

    As critical as I am of both sound and without sound reviews, I still read every word and listen to every recording. Trying is difficult for all of us these...

    I have not completely made up my mind. I look forward to comparisons as this gives much additional information. As a sound standard, my favorite is the Shires Q41. I have played one and it was pretty...

    Thanks everyone.

    I would not purchase one of these, at least so far. John's recording of the Sinfonico did not give me the sound I'm looking for. Further, any maker who has to send out multiple...

    I'm going to apologize if I offend anyone. Someone telling me the horn sounds great has little value. I'm "up to here" with people raving about whatever new instrument they just bought. Also about...

    The Sinfonico has a more robust sound. I think they sound nothing alike. I think that if the Imp were restored, it would be the better of the two. I can hear the leaks and the effects on the sound....

    Same issue as the DC4 in this one. Part of the tone spectrum is missing. I also watched the DC3 vs. DC4 on Youtube posted this morning. Same feeling. I think the 4AL is a much better sound for large...

    In this case, the DC4 is missing middle to middle high frequencies (graphically say on a 0-10 scale, 6-8 is missing). The 4AL sounds fuller and more balanced. I enjoyed hearing the 4AL this time. I...

    With the DC3 vs. DC4, the DC4 makes me happy. I know. Weird reaction but there is a thickness to the lower level in the spectrum of tone that supports the whole sound that really sets this one apart....

    Consistently throughout you lose overtones with the 4AL. The DC4 has them and gives you a more balanced sound. For me, the DC4 wins.

    I'm now a year and a half into taking up euphonium and switching from trumpet/french horn. At first I wondered how you guys found enough air to play even one phrase. Now I don't think about it much....
