    Put me in the "cold sore" camp. I've struggled with those for years.

    Glenn made a bag for my Kanstul tuba, back in about 2010 or so. It's the only way I've transported that tuba -- the hard case is just impossible to schlep around.

    Could not agree more about the mouthpiece. It's a paperweight, or will be when the Bach 5GS I ordered comes in. It was backordered, but should be arriving in the next few days.

    Another great point...

    So I guess that means that flyover country, aka the Midwest, is represented by the tubas and french horns, right? :cool:

    Without rhythm keeping all that together, you have a mess.

    Wow, I saw the "banned" moniker and wondered a bit.

    This is probably the calmest forum on the planet. It would take something like this to ban someone. lol

    The German wind band instrumentation generally calls for Tenorhorn I and Tenorhorn II (these would be the oval, small-bore horns); and then Baryton. The tenorhorn parts (not to be confused with the...

    The BR144 baritone came in on Saturday and I've had only a few minutes (maybe 30) to evaluate this instrument. First of all, the horn (I paid full MSRP at $1,450, plus $75 in shipping) was well...

    Thanks, John. I had not seen the "1 left" note earlier this morning when I looked, but did when I re-checked, so I bought it. Been wanting to buy a reasonably-priced baritone for some years now.

    I note the Wessex BR144, their brand-new 4-valve comper baritone just released last month, if what I'm reading is accurate.

    What's the wait time for one of these?

    WTB: British Baritone - 4-valve comper

    Yeah, I know the 3-valve compers are out there, and I'm reasonably familiar with the good reviews on the Wessex BR140 -- but I'd really like to explore the 4-valve compers out there and see if one...

    Agreed. I've never really been able to distinguish the normal crud that any of my horns develops just because it's being played, versus the crud that develops from a valve oil.

    Well, with the smaller Eb, you never know what might happen in your band's bass section. I understand the lugging-up-two-flights-of-stairs bit. Ugh.

    The 967 I owned (long since sold) was built in the mid-Nineties. It was a decent Besson, but it had the sharp sixth partial, pretty consistent with other Bessons I'd played on.
