    If I ever hear my phone ring I've made a mistake - it is permanently on silent/vibrate.
  2. Sticky: Here is the conversation I had with the seller...

    Here is the conversation I had with the seller after pointing this mistake out. I didn't respond to him as I'm not interested in the horn but so you all know what his thoughts were.

    The person listing the item directly told me it was Demondrae's horn when I made a (fairly low) offer. That was wrong and I've informed him but I don't know if that will cause the price to change.

    Update from Professor Thurman:
    "Hi Jacob. I hope all is well. I know this horn well but I didn't play it. It was played by my colleague Patrick Schulz. It's a terrific instrument and would be in...

    I just e-mailed info@seshires.com and they sent it to me and didn't ask me to keep it secret or anything so I figured anyone can do it. They said they are waiting for official professional pictures...

    I found on all the Adams I've played that Blue Juice works the best for me and my chemistry. I picked up a set of those cleaning spitballs and any valve problems quickly go away. For springs, the...

    The new 2052 8G I received had a ton of gunk at the bottom of the valves, indicating previous play and non-cleaning. I recommend giving the horn a bath with snakes and clean that gunk out.

    Someone here may be selling their E3 with SS bell, trigger and short action valves. Something to consider if budget is a concern.

    I said the timbre, to me, is more like Willson than Besson - 2950 or 2960, not 2900. More core, less rounded corners as previously described.

    I think my opinion may be colored by my experience with a particularly old Q40 - the difference in Dr. Vaughn's recordings was much closer than I remember the Q40 playing, speaking to the...

    I too am of the opinion that the Q41 just sounds better. I had the chance recently to compare a (brand new large shank) Q41 and (older) Q40 also and there was no comparison, the Q41 was leaps and...

    Thanks John. You're right in your description, trumpet players have this done also, the technical term for it is "reverse slide." The main benefit they claim is that there is no "bump" of...

    Adams E3 Reverse Slide retrofit

    All,

    Here is the finished product on my Adams E3 that I took in for repair. The alignment was so bad you can see the degree of bend in the fix to get the horn in alignment. At the same time,...

    Also the description says DC3 but the picture says DC4? I was going to post this on the FB marketplace post of this horn but got distracted by something else!

    The DC4 seems to have a "wider" sound profile whereas I would describe the 4AL as more "compact". It almost sounds like the recording equipment changes with each mouthpiece, so interesting. Do you...

    Yep, 6.5AL will last until high school and then you can try 51D or 5G esque MP. I played 6.5AL all through HS. Also agree with the Wick 6BS and Yamaha 48 above. Any standard mp in this size (or...

    I know what you mean, the 4U I have feels "duller" than the 4AL when it comes to articulations but the singing sound is amazing. I think the 4X feels a bit better articulation wise but is worse (for...

    I haven't seen any pictures or anything yet, just what Scott described to me over the phone. But yes, I think that is right, reverse slide.
