    I play a Marcinckiewicz GR model which is now renamed a 1 1/2 G. It is a bit deeper with a bigger throat than the Bach version with the same number, but it works very well on my Yamaha 322R bass...

    I have played my Mack Brass euphonium on a CKB/UMI/King (all the same mp) 5G and it's a good match.

    Aren't tenor horns similar in structure to a Bb British baritone, only pitched higher?

    The old Scottish split leaf Psalters used to all be in common meter and they switched tunes and texts around all the time. Perhaps the most familiar one is Old Hundreth, the Louis Borgeois tune...

    On my Mack Brass the low B natural is very flat with a 2+4 combination, but is much more in tune with 123. It doesn't seem to make as much difference with the low C if I use 1+3 or 4 alone.
