    I haven’t, but it looks very similar to the Sheridan Get-a-Grip for trombone. Those work very well.

    My custom Warburton 7ST feels identical to my demondrae on my face, so it’s the same result. In fact, I like the rim shape so much, I had Greg Black replicate the shape for me on a 1-1/4 G for Bass...

    interesting that you use a Demondrae on Trombone. I’ve tried it, and I find that the large throat on that MP doesn’t work for me on trombone. My articulations are too floofy with that. So I had...

    I came to Miraphone after I attended a workshop and got to play Demondrae’s 5050 back to back with my Sterling that I had at the time. It was a revelation to me, as I had to work so hard to make the...

    I found when leading a section in a community band that having my bell pointing toward the section (section on my right) helped with intonation of the section. If I sat with the section to my left,...

    No. Al Baer typically plays it on F tuba. Last time, The NY Times Critic made a snide remark which I thought was unwarranted, having been at that performance.

    You may be thinking of Mahler 7,...

    I have a neo and a 955 sovereign. The sound is very similar, but the Neo is more resonant and has better intonation. I bought mine sight unseen, and it’s great.

    Thanks. I’ve been present for almost every performance of the piece to date. The Bozeman performances were definitely the best so far.

    I believe Anthony ran treble clef versions on request for some folks. You might drop him a message through his website.

    The 5050 in my experience has octaves that are slightly stretched. The 2nd partial runs a little low IF you tune the 3rd partial Bb. Instead, I tune the 2nd partial, and ride the trigger above the...

    I’ve owned 3 5050’s over 10 years. 2 were exceptional, and one was only very good. I love this instrument, and I have no desire to play any other euphonium. I’ve played the Planets with two different...

    I think it WAS me that said that. The Prestige has a strong characteristic sound (I like the word “diffuse”), but rounded corners is a great description also. This sound CAN be overcome (ref David...

    I’ll jump in here and confirm everything Rick, John, and Demondrae have said, which is that I’ve never had a problem with the 4th valve range on any of the 3 5050’s I’ve owned over the last 10 years....

    The opening phrase of “Bach in Brooklyn” is the second menuet from Bach’s first Cello suite. I commissioned it to play at the wedding of a section mate in a band I used to play with. He liked Bach.
