    That is interesting!

    Of additional note, there is a new SM3XR that is apparently similar to the 4XR.

    International Shipping

    Hi guys,

    Have you any suggestions for international shipping? As an indivisual without a commercial account, shipping a euphonium I bought BACK to the UK is looking to cost around $850, which is...

    As it turns out, you’re right! A newly restored new standard, restored by McQueens Musical Instruments in the UK.

    Matt Van Emmerik was also playing an 11” bell on that concert. (Shires Q...

    This is going to sound ridiculous, but I have a spare DC2 in gold if you need one.

    That's got to be the bargain of the decade!

    I have a good friend selling a pristine 479 for $6k, so $3,500 is a steal!
  10. Thanks Sean! I reached out to the seller.

    Thank you, but that horn is sold - I reached out to Duchy Brass last week. :-)

    I had the opportunity to play the prototype of this horn - it played reasonably, but not as well as their production models. I'm curious about this horn in its production state, though. We'll see.

    I have the same curiosity - Definitely my two besson baritones are very different despite both being of German manufacture.

    Is besson still reputed to be inconsistent in quality, I wonder? ...
  15. Besson Anniversary Euphonium, York, Prestige, and relative merit

    So Besson did a handful of Besson 180th anniversary euphoniums in the frosted finish; I believe they are sovereigns with an added trigger.

    I saw Lee Harrelson playing one this weekend with...

    As an audio engineer, I find this kind of analysis of marginal benefit. While looking at a waveform can give you an idea of whether you are tapering before nite changes, etc, it tells you very...

    I'm very interested in the outcome - I have played the current 3D extensively; I would love to hear about the differences.

    I use Tonal Energy as a tuner - it's nice because it will allows for both equal temperament and just intonation. For playing with drones, that can be helpful.

    I've been fully digital for music reading for about 2.5 years at this point. I use the 12.9" iPad pro, as it's approximately the same size as a standard 8.5x11" sheet of paper.

    I did get a weird second chance offer from eBay, but the final price was $1900 plus $200 shipping, which ends up at the $2100 figure you saw.

    I bought this horn for $1900 plus shipping. I figured I can’t go

    The valve caps/buttons and some slides appear to have...

    On both horns, with the AGR out 5.5 turns, the short valve set seems to have SLIGHTLY more backpressure. I came in 1 turn to 4.5 on the...

    New E3 with Short Valves

    A couple years ago, I bought an E3 with SS bell and trigger. It's a great horn! After spending time on Sterling, Miraphone, Willson, and Besson, I felt I had found the horn I wanted, both in terms...
