    Thanks for the update, Doug. I thought I had just checked it a couple days ago, but eBay says it sold on the 25th - my timing was a little off.

    Arthur Lehman Advice on Sticky Valves

    I've added another article to the Arthur Lehman collection. Some of this is old news to forum readers and some may be questionable these days, but it is interesting reading!

  6. FS: Buescher Elkhart 3-Valve Baritone/Euphonium in Silver - Nice Old Horn

    This is the standard American format, with 3 valves and a curved (adjustable) bell. The serial number places is as a 1940 model, so the pitch should be based on 440. It appears to be silver plated...

    Thanks, Rick - that's fun! I love the camera work. They seemed to select carefully which instruments to show, and I suspect that was a ton of work!

    Along those lines, keep in mind that switching caps is pretty easy and doesn't affect your chops like switching a mouthpiece. So if a particular piece might seem to benefit from the standard cap, you...

  12. Sticky: FS: Besson Sovereign 955 Baritone Horn - Lacquer

    This horn is very much like my own baritone, which I like very much. As such it would have a nice, robust baritone sound. The condition looks great and it includes the luggage-style case Besson was...
  13. FS: King 4-Front-Valve Upright Bell Euphonium in Silver

    This is a bit rare (the fact that it is silver). A fine example of an American baritone-euphonium, with 4 valves so it would be usable on almost any concert band music and solo music. The smaller...

    My rule of thumb is that 2/3 of the price of a new one is about right for a used horn in good condition. This one seems to fit that. If it were newer it might be worth more, and if it had more...
