    Welcome to the forum. I assume you have listed this on TubeNET, too (or will) - they have a bunch more tuba players than this forum. Euphoniumists are the majority here.

    Oh, absolutely! Coming from Iowa, I didn't know a lot about the Coast Guard. A high school / college classmate got into the CG Band, and that is the only way I knew about the gig. I graduated in 1970...

    Thanks for fixing my original post, Rick! And thanks for adding the 5050 - that's a nice, narrow reach!

    Actually, I think John edited your post... he probably should have edited mine as well.

    That puts my Adams right in the middle, then - it's about 6.6 or 6.7. As I get a chance to get to a horn-laden conference I'll gather some more measurements. Those specs might play a part in some...

    Well, certainly the partials are closer together in that range on the BBb than on your euph, so that could be part of the issue. But what size mouthpiece are you using? Maybe it is too large. Some of...
