    I was just telling a student about these. I'm sorry to hear they are no longer being made. Perhaps one could be manufactured by a skilled repair tech?

    Hi Dave,

    Nice comparison videos. I think I prefer the DC3 better than the 4AL. There seems to be just a bit more presence and clarity with the DC3. Will you be doing a video of the DC3 and DC4?

    That's an interesting comparison. At first I thought the 4AL was definitely better. However, as the video continued I wasn't so sure. There are certainly characteristics I like from both mouthpieces....

    Barry,

    Jerry's products are fantastic. I can't recommend them highly enough and he's a great guy. I just received an order from him and took some photos.

    There are a few of these "tromboniums" on eBay that might fit the bill. They're definitely lighter and brighter than your average baritone or euphonium.
