    It looks nice. This era isn't particularly collectible and there aren't many playing opportunities where it'd fit in. It's probably in high pitch (A=452ish) and intonation and response probably...

    Most of the L&H imports from this period I've seen were Bohemian imports manufactured by Bohland & Fuchs, but if yours says France on it it wouldn't surprise me. These come along fairly often on eBay...

    That's interesting. There was a recent thread where we discussed the apparent fact that Cerveny/Amati had gone out of business and their workers and designs had shifted over to Lidl. But now there's...

    tuning trigger seems to use something like a bicycle cable for the linkage which is a nice solution I wish more brass instrument makers would look at.

    It's been out almost a year, the only player I know of using one is Steve Ridler in the Fairey Band. Given the unusual design it might be difficult to find converts. Almost all of Black Dyke is...

    Small room is bad in many ways, so your best bet is to get as direct a sound from the instrument as you can in order to minimize the sound of the room as much as you can. SM57 is going to have a...

    Gotcha. It's fun to visit brass instrument factories even if they aren't making instruments you'd want to buy yourself. Lidl is in Brno, I believe. I haven't heard that they've been making any of the...

    Cerveny was Czech not Polish, and they have recently gone out of business, so they aren't making them anymore. Josef Lidl has apparently hired most of their workforce and are making most of their...

    no, your lips are vibrating at the same pitch as the note is, period. Doesn't matter what partial you are on or how much tubing you are going through. what can change is the width of the slot and how...

    also, should be fine with a wick 6bs or 7cs, both are pretty mainstream mouthpieces and the instrument was developed with the 6bs in mind.

    high D (treble clef, concert C) on mine is pretty flat either open or with first valve, the only bad note on the instrument - it works great with 1+3, but I haven't noticed the notes leading up to it...

    one thing you can do is buy more instruments than you sell, so you always have a fresh supply of boxes coming in.

    By the way, the dislike of the 956 isn't completely universal. Helen Harrelson I know plays a 956 even though Besson gave her a 2056 to use as well, and she's an amazing player.

    I bought the very first 2056 sold in the US in 2008 and played that until I sold it to get my Neo in 2016. Prior to that I used a borrowed York 3056 (made using 956 tooling) for about a year, and the...
