    Here's a shot in the dark. Are you missing any accessory items from your case? I once had a bottle of valve oil find its way down the bell and partway around the first curve. The horn played, but it...
  2. Sticky: FS: 3-Valve Besson Bell-Front Compensating Euphonium

    This looks like a nice bargain! Buy-it-now price is $699.99, and the horn is in very nice condition. Case is included. This was made in the 1950's and would have the full, rich Besson sound. You're...

    No clue! My first guess is that it was made in India and may not have been marketed in the USA.

  15. Sticky: FS: GREAT BUY on an Open-Box Yamaha 321 in Lacquer

    The price/condition ratio on this horn is very good! It looks new except for a little pinhead-sized dent in the leadpipe. There may be some others, but I didn't notice them. The seller says it comes...
