    Sounds like the guy at music and arts may have gotten the Finish and Material discussions mixed up a bit.

    With finish, you've got pretty much silver and/or gold plating, and some type of lacquer....

    In that case, I would decide on a budget, and look for a used compensating euphonium. There are a good number of Besson horns from the past 50 or so years floating around. Dillon Music had a few...

    Just remember, there are always professional USED horns looking for a good home. I picked up an older Sterling Perantucci model for less than a new Eastman 374 would cost.

    Baltimore brass had a...

    What kind of Euphonium are you currently playing, and what is your level of experience?

    For people starting out, can't go wrong with finding a used Yamaha YEP-321.

    I'm still torn on MTS vs the SKB. Not having a storage compartment in the SKB is a real detraction. I like to keep everything I need IN the case.

    I may go down to Dillon Music this weekend to see...

    I'm gonna bet that top really says ACE, and not AEE. Probably a tie in with the base being there. With that serial number, no way could it be a Conn.

    IMHO, the Mozart Tuba Mirum excerpt sounds SO much better using natural breaks. If it's only a position away, there's no reason not to on a trombone.

    It takes time, and I have met players who just cannot get them to the real "trill" level of speed, and these are people with Masters in Performance degrees. The flexibility in Arban's definitely...

    Going through the same experience, it can be a bit maddening. As a trombonist I learned to make adjustments on the fly if I detect that I am out of tune with my section mates. My teacher in college...

    The 374 was designed in collaboration with Paul Riggett of Sterling, who make professional euphoniums in the UK. They consider the 374 to be a full professional level euphonium, while the 274 is more...

    The Schilke 60 is also really thin walled. This is basically the result of Bach and others using the same mouthpiece blank for all of their large bore mouthpieces. So the wider the cup, the less...

    The 1G is a classic BIG mouthpiece, as is the Schilke 60. Those were the big "toilet bowl" mouthpieces used by many players before there were all these other options.

    I would at most use the scotch brite pads. Maybe try the blue ones first, as they won't scratch the metal.

    What kind of grease are you using on your slides? Also, have you tried cleaning your...

    Hmm... really shouldn't need an "absurd amount of air" for a euphonium. You're using energy to vibrate the air column, not pushing air through the instrument.

    What kind of problems exactly are you...

    Euphonium Hard Cases: MTS or SKB

    I've been thinking about this since picking up the Sterling Euphonium I have. It came with a hard case, but it's probably close to 20 years old, and more importantly, seems to be held together by...

    I really need to work on that transposition thing. It really is a useful skill for a multi-instrumentalist, or any instrumentalist for that matter.

    I wouldn't think that the E1 would go anywhere. The bell is quite a bit thicker on the E2, and from what I gather, that's the main difference. The E3 looks to have a redesigned bugle for a darker...

    Yes, definitely correct. Regardless of what material it is, lacquered finishes do not require abrasive or chemical polishes like silver polish.

    It seems the "long 3rd valve slide" is also carried over into British Style Eb and BBb tubas. I looked at a 3 valve compensating Boosey & Hawkes last weekend, and even on that the 3rd valve slide is...

    8 months is definitely enough time for crud to build up inside of a horn, particularly in the lead pipe. Are you diligent about brushing your teeth at some point between eating and practicing? Food...

    Thanks! Some at tube net suggested the Schilke 69C4, which is a bit wider, but has a smaller throat than anything else schilke makes.

    I just picked up a new Yamaha BB 67C4. It seems like a bit of a mid-way size between the Helleberg 7B and 120S. I'll post about how it works out soon.

    If you like it, I'd say keep it. You can always lip things down, and for the most part unless you play down low, the compensating system doesn't really add much, except for the C and B Natural.
