    I've played both mouthpieces for extended periods each. In terms of sound the main difference is the SM3 plays warm & smooth, the DC2 brilliant & fluid.

    Doug, with regards to quality, how are these English/German hybrids seen? Are there enough around for there to be a consensus?

    The rim and the articulations on the Heritage just worked better for me. That said, I ultimately moved to the Alliance 2 (not the Childs 2) which was shipped with the Besson Prestige, the mouthpiece...

    Simply Good Playing

    Found this today, someone I've never heard before, a jazz trumpeter who was Sinatra's favorite. I like listening to great trumpet players because they can show you how to play a melody (among other...

    Ah, that's great -- a lovely soft sound from an instrument mostly played harshly and loud.

    I see why they are doing it this way, but my opinion its that it its foolish and dangerous. Masks are not 100% effective, and only cut back, not eliminate, the amount of virus shedding from...

    I have been listening to what she has been putting up on YouTube during the shutdown. Her sound is a classic euph sound and her playing is very musical.

    The Carbonaria is a really, really deep mouthpiece. I bought one used to see what the mystique was, but quickly sold it. Also, the LOUDs were heavyweight and the GWs much lighter, which can affect...

    True, but the shipping and insurance charges on a returned euphonium are not trivial. I've done it before--it's more like renting a euphonium for two weeks.

    In many ways, I think the euphonium works better as a solo instrument with orchestra than with wind bands because of the contrast in sound.

    The composer, an Adams performer, plays his own work, and it's very good indeed!

    Is Steve Mead now playing a gold plated euphonium? Or has he been and I'm just now catching on? The seems too deep a color and not quite right for lacquer.
