    I have a SM4 mouthpiece that I'm using with my Besson euphonium. I really love the sound I get and it's easy to work with... except. High notes.

    I've been struggling to get used to the mouthpiece...

    I have the same problem, which leads me to raising my left leg where the horn sits until I'm on my tip toes, and resting my raised heel against the chair leg. Sounds uncomfortable but it works for...

    I hold my euphonium seated on my left knee, tilted to the right, and when I tilt it to the right I can see the director past the left side of the bell. Sometimes I twist my chair in just a bit on the...

    Thanks for the suggestion Rick. Obviously not perfect, and definitely not long-term permanent I'm sure, but a happy immediate solution to bring down the glaring issue to just a dull roar.

    That's why I mentioned it is hard a direct comparison. It's right there in the text ;)

    But as also mentioned in my original post, I tried another more mainline Baritone horn and didn't have the...

    I'm almost 20 years out, coming back to the Baritone horn, oh boy it isn't like riding a bike. I came back also just for pleasure and playing in intermediate community band. And I thought "Let's...

    The one I chose is a heavy weight and it is a standard not a symphonic.

    Wow thanks Rick, that would definitely tide me over until I could get the crook replated at some point. Thanks. I did some digging and there are lots of brands of these wipe-on silvers.

    The case it came with is awful, it is spray-painted with initials on it and while it is physically still holding up it's what I would call "gross" more than anything. I don't know if this is the...

    The fact that the original post is deleted, is probably a bad sign. But for what it's worth, I did find a cached version of the post:

    That's so weird, I can't reproduce what you guys are seeing! Must be because I'm the buyer I guess, it just keeps showing me my own purchase which is the original listing.
