    Thanks for the feedback, John. I'm not going to announce my own preference until other opinions had a chance to come in.

    My overall feeling about a mute is similar to yours, although I like it in...

    I still vote for my method! Dennis has a lovely horn and obviously takes VERY good care of it. Having never tried his system in toto I can't compare directly from experience. But the Haggerty tarnish...
  3. How to Approach a Very Soft Passage???

    I'm looking at this from the Sparke book of hymns. The opening is very open and soft in the piano (mostly right hand). That sounds nice with the recorded clarinet example I heard, but the euphonium...

    As near as I can tell, this is still under copyright. That might make arrangements harder to find, and I don't know of any offhand.

    You could take this as a growth experience in one of two ways:

    That's a very workable price range to get a good euphonium. There are several available, two of which are offered from companies that support this forum (companies I accepted because I know they have...

    Just adding to the discussion as I responded on FB to someone. A consideration is the Douglas Townsend Chamber Concerto No. 2 for Euphonium and Orchestra. 1965.

    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...
  9. 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.

    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...?

    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.
  19. 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...
