    Looks like the Elf is also not available. I know shipping is piggish right now, for everything. Any clue as to when either Bombinos or Elfs will be here?

    Asking again....Bombinos seem to be unavailable right now and I'm not sure I would like the 3+1. Looking again at both the Elf and the Bubbie, wondering which, in Eb, would be more suitable for a...

    Looking at the charts, it appears that the recommended mpc is quite a bit wider than the 12C. The only narrower one out there that I can find is a Bach 22. I may try one of those. BTW, the conductor...

    Rotary valves in the euphonium world

    I have a 4-valve rotary Meinl Weston bariton (not baritonE) that looks like a toddler-sized MW F tuba. It does not sound like a euphonium, though, and it is stuffy in the low range just like a rotary...

    "The" instrument for me

    Last summer I bought a Sterling Parentucci off ebay. It was cosmetically imperfect but everything worked fine. I bought one of these based on the intonation tests that Dave did at one point (and...
