    Some really nice melodies mentioned above. I also like playing some melodies that Nat King Cole made popular. Like, “Mona Lisa”, “Misty”, “Tenderly” and “Stardust” to mention a few.

    I’ve not played the Adams E2 more than a few minutes but I would vote for the Miraphone 5050 for “heft”. Big dark tone with good intonation.

    That's a tough gig at O'Hare. Good for your brother-in-law not going on strike. That was really tough back in '81. Reagan had to deal with the PATCO strikers because the post office workers were...

    It appears that Adams sells these covers. Depending on how thick they are it may affect the sound though.

    Just measured some old Yammy springs I still have. They’re just under 2” in length. 50mm to be exact. I think your tech is correct in that all of the available springs by Yamaha for the euph are the...

    Ha, I agree. As I get older ALL the parts are harder.

    FYI. If anyone needs a treble clef version of Dave and Neal's alternate fingerings I have a close representation of that.

    Wow Jake! Your brass tech did a great job ironing out the bell. Can't see any blemishes from your 'live photo' to show that. This looks like an excellent buy for an E3.

    Congrats John on your new Adams T-bone! Sounds great.

    It’s nice to have a wife who says, “Get it, it’s the best sounding trombone I’ve heard you play on”.
