    They couldn't be bothered to look at the valves before shipping the horn to you? On a horn they've had since December? Why does this seem prevalent throughout the industry? So many mfg miss easy to...

    At 30:47 you can hear Gregson's own brass ensemble arrangement of his Symphony in Two Movements, itself a brass band test piece and used for the 2014 NABBA Championships. An excellent piece of music,...

    If this case came with the horn I sold you, it is the "standard" MB size but the "newer" redesign that has the more comfortable straps and sleeker profile to make it easier to carry. I had an MB...

    Blue all the way. You are so much more dynamic, more musical. You color the tone more with blue than red as needed and it seems more open and vibrant. It suggests a familiarity with blue that isn't...

    I mean, again, the horn plays flat for most immediately and then they get used to it and it doesn't. My horn didn't magically shorten itself. For some they'd rather have the shorter main tuning...

    Every Adams horn I've ever played has played "lower" than other mfg horns. There is an air adjustment period, in my opinion, that happens and you do get used to it. I love it because once I got...

    A Giddings Kadja is almost exactly this - similar rim size to 51D but 4G esque cup size. It's a very good mouthpiece. A Schilke 52E2 would be another option, or Yamaha 52 or 53H would be other...

    Sorry to jump in, but I've had issues with my K&G 3.5D inserting into different Euphonium leadpipes, a problem I have not had with the Wick. Wobbles is indeed the behavior that happens, unless I...

    I reached out to Dennis Kurun on Facebook last month and said that Dillon has the newest revision of the K&G Euph MP in the USA, for anyone curious. Thinking about picking up a gold plated 3.5D.

    I really missed the sound of the Cardinal I briefly had. Did you have any issues with build quality? Buzzing noises, etc coming from the trigger assembly?
