    Agree to disagree? I own a 3 valve Couesnon Bb Bass. It is very distinct type of instrument with distinct attributes that distinguish it. It is clearly not a Baritone, and certainly not a Tenor. ...

    There's a lot of things to say about adapters, so let's go there.

    First things, first. A well made adapter will sound and play just fine. The only downside is that it will make the mouthpiece...

    I've seen some ovalform gigbags on ebay, but never tried any of them.

    I have test fit my Maestro Euphonium case with the Ukraine models of Soviet Baritone and Tenorhorn and they both fit perfectly...

    I never played a Flugabone because I'm not paying over $400 for such a thing. My Fake Trombone of choice is the Trombonium. Great sound if you like a peashooter, and easiest slotting ever. Awful...

    Ok. If you want to measure your mouthpieces and stuff, here's how. It's easy. You need a ruler with millimeter markings and a dry erase marker. This is sufficient to get you within 0.05mm at the...

    So I don't really have a ton of experience with exactly these sorts of instruments to say what will definitely work, but I can say what won't work and give some tips here and there.

    It's probably some strange issue with the valve, but there are certainly some weird things that can happen with intonation, particularly when weird Alto things get involved. I would run it down like...
  8. Quick Fun Facts on the Conn 5I (not history)

    Since I managed to get a steal on a Conn 5I on the ol' fleabay, I figured I would drop some specs and info on it. It's a somewhat obscure instrument as it's one of the last of its kind, and lacks...

    For the sake of additional feedback, I have the removable tilt bell version of the same horn, same vintage. Main slide slammed home to play in tune, even with my toddler size mouthpieces. Not sure...

    I'm not exactly a professional, but I've never seen anyone play Euphonium with a 50/50 embouchure. Way back when I started as a wee lad, I was told to get the mouthpiece as high as I could get it...

    It depends on the machine. Some machines have the capability to make this adjustment based on run time, and others use crazy lasers and stuff to constantly make adjustments.

    I recommend giving a chance to a Neotech Brass Sling. It's a lot cheaper than buying another instrument, and removes all of the problems that might come from getting something questionable. Maybe a...

    I'm not well-versed in the history of Yamaha's brass instruments, but I figure that YEP-100S is the old version of what is now the YEP-201S. The only difference that I can see is that the bell...

    I found some photos of a YEP-100S. It's a fairly bog standard Euphonium. I guess it's small compared to modern day tanks.

    Thanks for the responses, so far.

    All this love for the Eb Bass...maybe I'll see if I can find a mouthpiece that lets me play that high without clamming furiously. It doesn't really like this...
  17. A little bit of Bydlo! Tenor Tuba Showdown

    First off, a huge thank you to David Werden for resisting the urge to transpose this to treble clef with 7 sharps. This drastically facilitates my ability to play this on instruments in Eb.

    Players used smaller mouthpieces than 25.5mm for decades. The Conn 3A is 22.5mm. The Besson 10 is 24.4mm (and is super deep). I'm quite satisfied with my sound on the JK EU12B and, for better or...

    That's the Precision era 64-I which is pretty much a small bore Euphonium. I'm sure it completely destroys the Artist era Saxhorn derivative, and if I had $1000 burning a hole in my pocket, I'd have...

    Conn only used the terms Baritone or Euphonium to distinguish, and those terms were only really meaningful in the Artist era. I use the term Baritone Saxhorn to specifically indicate an instrument...

    I am well aware of the difference between the Baritone Saxhorn, the British Baritone Horn, and the Euphonium. I own examples (multiple) of all three. There is a difference between a "Baritone" and...

    I hate always being the negative nancy, but someone needs to say it.

    This is a Double Bell Baritone. Probably a 75-I. It would have come with both HP and LP tuning slides. The receiver has...

    All of the forward-bell Bessons were built for US market and would have been built as LP instruments. Supposedly, Besson was still making some high pitch instruments up to 1965, but I seriously...

    I saw the listing. With an original mouthpiece, great condition, and $350?! Steal. Buy it.

    The Trombonium is a fantastic instrument, marred by issues with the mouthpiece. The original...
