    Welcome to the forum!

    That's a pretty broad set of questions, so let's try to narrow them down a bit. What is your budget to buy a horn? (In general, you can get a better quality trombone in the...
  2. Sticky: FS: Besson 967 in Lacquer - Nice Condition

    According to the serial number this is a 1983-85 horn, so a good period for Besson. The lacquer is pretty worn but the horn looks quite good otherwise. It includes a non-Besson hard case from the...

    I'd like to know as well. My usual source for such things had bell covers for all the brass, except... Well, you know.

    On top of the piston. You may have to lift one side of the top pad slightly to see the whole number.

    Welcome to the forum!

    The 48 is OK for where you are now. I'd think your range should extend for the "core" range of most band music, which is :
    bass clef: E below staff, to Bb an octave above...

    Thanks for clarifying the opinions already expressed. FWIW, during the 10 years I was a Besson artist I played on a 967, which had a 12" bell. large shank receiver, and a .580 bore. Perhaps this horn...

    Interesting that they cost about 50% more than the Mead springs! But these things are usually a matter of scale and efficiency. It starts at the factory. Certainly they are set up to build the horns...

    Could you elaborate a bit? I listened last night with good headphones and that was not my impression. What did you like about the 321 better? Tone? Or...?




    Isn't the 321 the entry level...

    I would agree with your thinking that a 6-1/2AL would be a good "in the meantime" mouthpiece. It should help his tone and is kinda the mainstream choice when a student starts to get good but hasn't...

    Good catch, Doug! In fact, this listing is his most recent. Maybe the PM will work, though.

    BessonRocks: if a PM doesn't work, you might try creating a WTB (wanted to buy) listing in this section.
  12. Sticky: FS: Yamaha YEP-842S Compensating Euphonium - Nice Horn and Nice Price

    This the the top-of-the-line Yamaha and looks very nice. There are numerous photos in the listing and the hard case is included. The buy-it-now price is $4,499.99, which I think is an excellent...

    My Adams has lacquer over the whole instrument (I suppose to protect the brushed finish), so on my Hercules stand there is not problem with tarnish.

    For a standard silver-plated horn, I suggest...

    That's a fun group for sure! If I were a tuba player who had to do stand-up gigs I'd want one of those. That started me thinking...does a euphonium have enough tubing to produce one with a wrap...

    Thanks for the update! To spend that kind of money a person has to be sure it's an improvement over what they already own. It's good that you like your current horn, so you aren't exactly stuck with...

    John,

    It's not surprising that a given player might have a different opinion! As I have stated before, I like the open, singing sound I get with my Wick 4AL. Some other 4-size mouthpieces I tried...

  23. HBC Heavy 4th Cap - Compared in Large Room

    My first video was from my basement studio with a close mic (the "room sound" is awful if I don't do this). But for a better perspective I used a church this time. The acoustics are a bit more live...

    Welcome to the forum!

    We may have some members who know of this brand, but I sure don't. Did you buy it new or used? I'm wondering if it is antique-ish.

    That's pretty frustrating when it happens. A good repair tech can adjust the inner slide so this doesn't happen. It is usually quick & easy for them.
