    I'd love to hear more details about just how you applied the resin. Toothpick application to the sides of the brass guides? How long to dry? I definitely don't want to epoxy the valves into the...

    I promised pictures: from bath time to reassembly. I must heap more praise on Dillon Music. They replaced the springs, felts and corks. The metal valve guides are a bit noisy, but I don't think...

    I love my Sterling, but the nostalgia I associate with my college Besson and the unique rich sound keep drawing me back. SO... found a satin finish Besson on Ebay courtesy of Dillon Music and took...

    Ditto the Sterling, but why change horses? Besson makes a fabulous euphonium, and there are lots of high quality used horns on the market.
