  1. Le Cygne (The Swan) from Carnival of the Animals

    I'd like to perform this solo next semester and I want to order a copy of it, but there's quite a few arrangements of it. I was wondering if anyone's performed this work and I want to get some...

    I created this topic to get better insight on these popular budget horns. I'm buying one as a backup while my 1969 Besson Imperial undergoes a restoration in the spring. If I were you, I would...

    Interesting. In the band I played Gliding Girl in, we did it as a march.

    It appears that the Wessex Euphonium also has nylon valve guides which is a huge relief for me. Thanks everyone for the insight on these horns. I feel a lot better about buying one of these horns...

    It's just that I've had some bad experiences with them in the past. When I get my budget horn, I'll be cautious with the valves so I don't wear them down quickly. If anything, I'll probably make the...

    I've played The Pathfinder of Panama about 3-4 years ago in the Rollins College band. It was a pretty fun Euphonium part. Some other obscure Sousa marches I've played include On Parade, Powhatan's...

    Ugh, I have a fiery hatred for plastic valve guides! They always seem to break at crucial moments such as right before concerts and auditions.

    That brings me to another question I have. What type of valve guides do these horns have (plastic or metal)?
  11. Questions about Budget Euphoniums (Wessex, Mack Brass, Schiller, Jinbao)

    I think I've decided on what I'm going to do with my old Besson. Because I like my old Besson so much and I don't have the heart to get rid of it, next spring I'm going to send it off somewhere to...

    I've played Second Suite so many times that I practically got the Euphonium part memorized. It's a fun Euphonium part to play and although I'll jokingly say I hate it, I really like it. Someday I may...

    Usually during breaks, I either put it back in its case or I just carry it with me.
  14. I think I found an error in the Euphonium Excerpt Book.

    I'm not sure if anyone else has found this yet but was playing through the Fingal's Cave Overture excerpt in the Euphonium Excerpt Book yesterday. When I got to this part (I hope no one minds that I...

    What a very informative read. I should really look into this when I get some free time. If it's not that expensive then I could probably get it fixed for very cheap which is a relief. Honestly...

    Putting the horn on the bell also makes it more prone to being knocked over which can lead to damage on the slides, tubing, and valves. In rare cases, it could put a crease in the bell if knocked...

    Thanks for the quick responses! I decided to clean up the 4th valve because there appeared to be some build up in the valves. When I unscrewed the bottom cap, I noticed this...2352. It appears the...
  18. 4th Valve on Besson Imperial gets stuck down when Top Valve Cap is tightened

    My horn (1969 Besson Imperial) has been having this problem recently. I put the 4th valve in after oiling the valve and when I tighten the 4th valve cap and press the valve down it gets stuck. It...

    I totally forgot about that place! I remember about a year or two ago when my brother was looking for a Bass Trombone, we went there to see if he had one for sale. We ended up spending a few hours in...

    I'm looking next Fall/Winter to send my 1969 Besson Imperial Euphonium off somewhere to get a quality restoration done on it. I'd like to get it restored to its former glory but unfortunately where I...

    I don't have any insurance and I'm too old to be on my parent's insurance. I would get a second opinion but I don't have a lot of money. This was the best I could do because it's affordable to me.

    That's a huge relief. I was nervous because I thought I was going need to take like 2 months off.

    Will the tooth getting pulled hurt my playing ability at all? (Range, embouchure, tone quality, etc.)
  24. How will getting a tooth pulled affect a Euphonium/Tuba Player?

    Last Saturday after my ensemble auditions, I got a really bad toothache. On Monday, I went to the school's dentist and he said that it needed to come out because it was severely infected and that it...
