    Beautiful horn!
    I have a stupid question: do you use silver polish on the bell and nothing on the rest of the horn?

    Sorry to say, my Doug Elliott has been sitting in the drawer for a while now. I'm using the Bowman BB1 on the euphonium and my vintage Bach 6.5 AL on my Bach 36B.

    One possibility is to compromise. For example, use the XT101 with F cup and 4 shank for a small/medium bore tenor, and the I cup and 8 shank for a large-shank euphonium. This probably doesn't work...

    Have you considered Doug Elliott mouthpieces? You can have one rim in 101 size (similar to the 51D) and switch off to different cups and shanks, depending upon which horn you're using.

    I have used a strap while marching. It's not a question of weight, per se, but the arthritis in my hands made it uncomfortable to hold.

    Good point, but we play in a symphonic wind band, so we're all euphoniums. And since it's an amateur group (section leaders are all pros), there are no two euphoniums of the same make or model.

    Hah! Nice way of characterizing it. I'm curious about your reference to "2nd harmonic." Were you thinking 2nd partial? The fundamental on a euphonium is pedal Bb, and the second partial is Bb on the...

    By the way, 50 is not bad. For me, it was a time to start reaping...

    Bydlo - Toscanini and NBC Symphony Orchestra

    I was listening to this recording yesterday and it seems to me that the Bydlo solo was not being played on a euphonium - or if it was, perhaps the age of the recording affected the timbre. Is anyone...
