    Yep. Even if the full band (+ euph) were playing it would still be fun to match the existing Euph section.

    If he was playing a "Yamaha student horn" (YEP321?) then he could be using a narrower shank mouthpiece which would not fit the large bore Euph options. He said that it's too small for a bass...

    I've just recently started playing again and tested the 274 and 374. I found the 374 able to "blossom" in the manner you described, especially with a wider bore mouthpiece (SM4U) than is included...

    Thanks David, that article had a lot of good information. Do you find that a setup in the $100-$200 range is necessary to make a recording suitable for self-analysis / practice review?

    Recording yourself

    I practice in a 30x20x14 foot room and have been trying to record myself with my cell phone. The audio quality is horrible, especially if the bell is facing towards the microphone (~6 feet away). ...

    Thanks Dave, I had been doing 'A' (and also moving the mouthpiece around) but have stopped those bad habits. I can hit F4 with good tone quality when I'm fresh and doing 1 octave. I can work up to...

    I got my strap the other day and found that I had to make the hand loop pretty tight because the stay on my euph is pretty close to the 4th valve. I put the instrument-side loop under the stay to...

    Jake,
    What mouthpiece were you using? When I play tested the horns I didn't feel the differences in resistance or slotting (using a 5G). However, my current playing ability would not push the...

    Thanks Barry. I was considering a SM4 or SM5 so I'm glad to hear you suggesting it. Your comment about changing 1 parameter at a time makes sense as well.
