    Not sure I agree on price. The new price is $8200 from Brasswind. This one is 57% of the new price. (But making a lower offer is not usually a bad idea - you never know!)
  4. FS: Besson German 967 in Silver - Excellent Condition

    This is a great-looking horn! The case is included and also looks near perfect. Buy-it-now price is $4,699 and there IS a make-offer button. That's a very fair price, IMHO. (Many more photos in the...

    It's always hard to predict what the market will bear with a horn where the condition is way out of the mainstream, but I doubt he'll get 6k. If one really wanted a dandy horn of this era, I would...

    Trafalgar Hornpipe

    Here is a traditional hornpipe, such as you might hear performed in a pub. The whole arrangement includes a short divergence into "Locker's Hornpip" in the middle, but we took the optional cut to...
  7. Capuzzi - Allegro Moderato from Bass Concerto

    This is my arrangement of the first movement of Capuzzi's concerto. Movements 2 and 3 were arranged by Philip Catelinet as "Andante and Rondo." My arrangement supplies the missing first movement,...

    An die Musik by Schubert

    A lovely song by Schubert. I have played this on double-bell euphonium, baritone horn, and euphonium! Here are all 3. Sheet music is here:

    Sticky: FS: Besson Sovereign 967 in Lacquer

    Here's a nice 967 for those looking for a euphonium with a big sound. Condition looks very nice. See the seller's description below the photos. Starting bid is $3,500 and there is a Make-Offer...
  10. Sticky: FS: Lovely 1970's-ish Besson 4-Valve in Silver

    This is one of the nicest old Bessons you'll find, with additional touches like gold tuning slides and valve caps. Seller's description is below the photos. I think I saw this a little while ago for...
  11. Sticky: Visually, I agree! I'm kicking myself for not...

    Visually, I agree! I'm kicking myself for not finding time to test out the Wessex baritone at ITEC. I actually had my own 955 with me, so I could have compared easily enough. It was John Powell who...

    Today is a two-for-one day! Two good quotes below:

    When taking in an inhalation, I want the concept of air moving into the mouth at the lips, not into the abdomen. ...Breathing is not a complex...

    I've seen some older Fusion bags do not-so-well in the durability department, but the new ones look like they will be better. Note this comment in one of the reviews (which I believe I have also...

    My 955 plays very nicely, and I suspect this one will be better. The Sovereign model offers a nicer sound (IMHO) compared to the New Standard. I just heard from a colleague that the Schiller and...

    I should also point out that you are using a compensating instrument. So on a trombone with F attachment, you know that a low Eb is played with the trigger plus a long 3rd / short 4th position....

    Here is a video of me playing a very similar horn. It had a heavy gold brass bell, which yours does as well. I was using a Wick 4BL for this recording:

  17. Sticky: FS: Besson Sovereign 955 3-Valve Compensating Baritone Horn

    This is a much newer model of the same baritone I play. It was made in Germany, so quality control should be very good. It is reportedly a very low-mileage horn in great shape, and it includes the...
  18. Sticky: FS: Besson 785 3-Valve Compensating Tuba - Recording Bell - GREAT BUY

    This is a rare horn, at last compared to what I've seen listed before. It is a BBb instrument with the 3-valve compensating system, which I have to think would be great for use in a concert band. It...

    Bottom line: I think it's probably a very good horn.

    Sterling came into being after a bunch of Besson workers reportedly got fed up with the cheap labor the factory was relying on more and more,...

    Thanks for the hymn trivia! I know some hymns that have 3 titles.

    I fixed the links for the Sparke pieces - not sure what went wrong the first time!

    Thanks, John! Brian is quite a good piano (and organ) player, so he had a little margin to work with, I suppose. He emailed me later and said it was a good thing we didn't have to play in the...
  23. Church Service Participation #4 - July 7 2019

    I played last Sunday in church, which was a little bit of a challenge. I had been away from the horn entirely for the first half of the week of July 4, and had been sick out of action for much of the...

    Welcome to the forum!

    The inconvenient part of all the Adams options is that the variety is overwhelming. Even with all my exposure to their horns, I have not tried every combination.
    However,...

    FS: Nice King 2280 in Satin Silver

    There are a lot of 2280's on the market, but this one is set apart from the crowd. First, it's in very nice condition. Second, it has a finish that makes it look more special - it is matte/satin...
