    I use this clip-on lyre for my horns that don't have lyre boxes.

    I've also found a lyre that comes with a clamp-on lyre box, though I haven't tried it personally. Might work nicely if you mix...

    It's not quite the same, but I've seen some valve trombones in C around. Yamaha, Jupiter and Wessex all have at least one model.

    The tenor tuba is the "correct" instrument to use for early 20th-century French music that calls for tuba, and that's about it. It's the Bydlo horn.

    I have the Hercules stand -- it holds both my tuba and my euphonium securely. I prefer it to the K&M floor stand since it raises the horn to eye level and makes it much less susceptible to getting...

    Part of the reason I rely so heavily on my electronic setup is that I'm often playing horns that I can't let go of, like marching baritone or contra, so page turns are impossible unless I put the...

    Kleen Strip probably won't do anything to nickel plate since it's a paint stripper. Nickel is also a lot harder than silver or lacquer so manually removing it will be a real pain, and you're almost...

    If being on a hot vehicle could damage brass instruments we wouldn't have drum corps. I'd be more worried about anything else you leave in the case, especially bottles of valve oil -- they can...

    I haven't tried it on a Y321, but I like my Schilke 51D for my small-shank horns. It's about the same diameter as the Bach 5G but a little deeper.
