    Does your Willson have mother-of-pearl inserts? If so, a tech might be able to replace just the insert???

    Do any Schiller owners here have the strap?

    Which strap do you have? Is it from Valerie or the QHR strap? (A couple years back QHR straps had a more course "weave" to the fabric.)

    Very nice playing on a lovely piece! (It was fun to see a trumpet player using 3rd valve on his upper A, too!)

  5. Sticky: FS: Adams E1 with Sterling Silver Bell - Lacquer

    This is a nicely-kept E1 with a solid sterling bell. It is the .60 brass and includes the Bonna case. Current bid is $2,200 and I expect it will go much higher. But it might sell for an attractive...
  6. Sticky: FS: Getzen Marching Euphonium - Great Buy

    If you want a front-facing or marching euphonium, this looks like a great deal! The condition seems good, and I believe Getzen is a respected brand in this realm. This has 3 piston valves, so it...

    Sticky: FS: 1982 Besson Sovereign 968 - Silver

    This one was made during some very good years for Besson. The condition looks very good, and the seller describes the case as being in great shape. This would have a slightly more compact sound than...

    Thanks, David. That is very interesting. I was expecting mostly 5 cents difference for with/without LaFreque, which one might suspect is margin-of-error territory. But the swings are wider in many...

    Thanks for the detailed report! It was interesting to me that you had test cases for the LeFreque plate as well, and that it made enough difference to affect the outcome...apparently in a negative...

    I had a 1971 New Standard with medium shank and a 1976 NS with large shank. I agree with Doug's observations. The only advantage I found with the large shank, other than making it easier to buy...

    My impression was that the prototype valves did not affect the tone noticeably. The only difference I picked up was that the response did not feel quite as "clear" as with the standard valves....

    Well, gold (colored) trim pieces is one thing you could do. You can have them gold plated of course. I would think a shop could strip the plating, polish them, and lacquer them so they keep the...
  15. Hogwarts' March - Harry Potter and The Goblet Of Fire Soundtrack

    I guess I should have watched this movie! The euphonium (and British-style brass) contribution is pretty hard to miss.

    Welcome to the forum!

    It strikes that there are two types of tempo problems possible

    1) an inherent weakness at hearing/feeling/recognizing a steady beat.

    I'm not a Besson history expert, but I was a Besson Artist from 1980-90-ish. I think the last new Sovereign I received was in the mid 1980's, maybe in 86 or so. On that horn they had used the system...

    OK, the seller took care of my idea! The price is now lowered to $3,000 (edited above), which seems very fair for this horn.

    I was not crazy about the delay, but I didn't mind the message. People are not inherently patient (although I'm getting a LITTLE better as I get older). And it's nice to know why the delay exists. I...

    Yeah, I think the floating leadpipe was added in the 1990's or early 2000's. In the earliest examples I tried (I believe I borrowed Steven Mead's horn at an Army conference) seemed to have better...
