    The seller supplies a photo of the valve, which I added above. They look pretty good, with some light pitting (as far as I can tell). My school horn at Iowa looked a bit more pitted, but the valves...

    Besson switched to the large shank around 1974 so this one should be medium.

  4. Sticky: FS: King 2280 in Laquer - Decent and Cheap

    This 2280 has taken a few hits, but it looks to be very serviceable and a very good buy. Hard case is included. The bell has a "scar" just below the rim which seems to be from it having to be...
  5. Sticky: Besson 4-Valve Compensating in Lacquer - 1967

    This one is in decent shape and I don't see any red flags. I have asked the seller for photos of the pistons. The 4th valve doesn't have the original finger button but the other three do. Seems to...
  6. Cory Band - William Tell Overture - Live Performance

    Rick just posted a nice video of Hiram Diaz, which is a good "keeper" example of playing this piece. As I was drawn back to YouTube I was reminded of this video I watched recently. This one is just...

    Thanks, Rick - that is a great performance, one of the best live performances of this piece I've ever heard.

    For convenience, here is JUST the Original Fantasy (but the whole concert is worth...

    ...and it is not typically used that way in brass band writing. Works well for a solo instrument and it a valuable color in the mid-low range. In a way, it's like the viola. Viola is not a strong...

    Very nice ensemble, IMO. Having a euphonium on the bottom is nice. There is not much range difference among the instruments, but we are used to hearing trombone quartets with all 9-foot instruments,...

    Excellent points! I think I (and others) have said on the forum that if one were doing nothing but playing standard/classic concert band literature, and American horn would be a nice choice.

    As to...

    Related to my suggestion above:

    It has been documented that as we run out of air on long phrases, it interferes with your finger coordination. The lack of oxygen messes you up! So catching barely...

    In the Coast Guard we paired up. It's not really a "solo" in the one-only sense; I think it is a "section solo." If you get a big breath before you start you can go quite a way. So we would actually...
  13. God Bless America - Studio Singers of America

    This was on the same channel where I discovered Chloe Langford's video of "All Day Long" (posted in the Videos section).

    It was arranged, engineered and mixed by Paul Langford, and is a...

    I'm going to move this question to the "Euph Brands" category. And I think you can find quite a few opinions on JP Sterling (most of them positive) if you browse that category.

    Here is a link that...
  16. Sticky: FS: Boosey & Hawkes Imperial Euphonium in Silver

    This seems to be member Beef's horn. Starting bid is $1,500 and the buy-it-now price is $2,000. See his previous posts for more description of his work on the horn:...

    Many of us are busy, and I know in my own case I don't always have time to type a long, carefully-worded response. I don't see anything offensive in the comments, or in my suggestion. Just following...

    Not sure about a little over 2k - maybe.

    What mouthpiece do you use? A 51D might get your Besson to sound a little more like Adam/Brian.

    This post had been invisible to others until this morning. I just noticed it had been "on hold" pending review. That system is automatic so I'm not sure why.

    Anyway, I have no opinion to add, but...
  22. Sticky: FS: GORGEOUS Conn 10i 3-Valve Satin Silver and Gold Wash

    Bad news first: the starting big is $900. So this is not for someone just looking for "a horn." But it is the nicest sample I've seen in a long time for the American euphonium. Frosted//satin silver...

    Agreed! But looking at the numbers - 700k villages that may each have multiple bands - and from hearing the quality of the bands they displayed, I think I understand how their market works for them....
