    Back in the old days maybe, but not for modern instruments. You'll also find people who say the best mouthpieces "pop" an octave. Basically if you tap your finger across the end of the shank, and...

    Are you buying the Sinfonico new? If you are in that price range, you are in the price range of used pro level euphoniums by Besson, Boosey & Hawkes, and others. I think Dillon Music has a B&H...

    Yes. So post some pictures and most likely in a few days you'll know exactly what it is, and also how to bring it back into "playing condition" after sitting around for quite some time.

    The Trigger system requires different tolerances and precise alignment on the main tuning slide. It's a lot looser so it slides easily, which means you can't just install the trigger on the tuning...

    YIKES. "Send me the dots mate"... uhh no.

    The only thing I can think of is that maybe it's very hard to get those pieces in the UK? Looks like you can get the Fantasia by Bulla, but it's listed...

    IMHO, you should not be using the same mouthpiece with a Bass Trombone and a Euphonium. They are two very different instruments and sound concepts.

    I'm in agreement. Are you asking any type of question? Shanks taper, so in some ways the starting and ending size is immaterial. Some specifically design their mouthpieces to have the throat closer...

    That's definitely seen some action, for sure. Not sure if it really needs a full restoration. Maybe just removing the leadpipe to plate, and also pulling off the bottom bow to get all those dents...

    I definitely do NOT recommend using leather for a mouthpiece pouch, and am amazed that denis wick is making one. The chemicals used to tan leather react quite readily with a lot of metals. I use...

    Yeah, that price is kinda crazy, even with the gold trim and heavy valve cap. I guess they must have searched online and priced it once they knew what it really was?

    True. Really getting some bad vibes. It looks like a good horn but with those picture it'll never go for anywhere near what they are asking.

    Since it's an electro chemical process, it should be able to do a whole horn, as long as you include enough aluminum. The water also needs to be HOT, or else the reaction is slow to non existent,...

    Looks like a Yamaha Neo. Probably the easiest tenor horn to find in the U.S.

    I think originally Dorsey used an Almont mouthpiece, which is definitely quite small. It was also solid silver I believe. I don't think the maker made any mouthpiece but that one size.

    Do you mean with each practice session, or over time? Usually with me this happens because I'm fatigued.

    If you look at most charts, the 7th harmonic is skipped completely. This is why from F3 to F#3 you go from open to 2 - 3. There is a harmonic between the open F3 and Bb3 but it is VERY flat....

    You would need a 5th Valve or a long 1st slide pull to play B0 in tune. For C1 above it you've already got all 4 valves pushed down. The more valves you push down, the sharper the instrument will...

    You can say that again. I was just about to bring my horns in to Dillon Music for some adjustment and de-denting, and now everything is pretty much on hold, for who knows how long.

    I would think in Spain getting either Wick or Yamaha mouthpieces would not be an issue. You an probably get Schilke as well. There are plenty of European dealers, and amazon might sell them too.
