    Mike,

    I tried Resilience Oil and thought it might be good, initially it felt good and the valves were quick. But, alas, I got crud in the bottom of my valve chambers, big time, so I discontinued...

    Ugh!! I'm with you, Rick. Guess I am an old traditionalist. I like "Stars and Stripes Forever" played exactly the way it was written, period. Just like I like the National Anthem played and sung...

    Nice video. My old stomping grounds. When I was there, females were rare (1971-76), but started entering the band before I left. Now it is pretty common. I had a couple girl section mates on...

    Ditto what Doug said. I owned a Hirsbrunner in the late 90's and it was an excellent horn. I didn't trade it because I didn't like it, I just really wanted to try a Besson Prestige when they came...

    I second Dennis's comment above. I own a high end horn and a Wessex and another pretty good horn. The Wessex is a very good 4 valve (3+1 configuration), compensating euphonium. Can't go wrong with...

    I think I never did report back about the results from having sent my Adams E3 to Lee Stofer in Iowa. I got the horn back during ITEC in May 2019. The results are outstanding. Perfect, in fact. ...

    I play the Yamaha Douglas Yeo model bass trombone and have found the Yeo signature mouthpiece that comes with it to work pretty well for me. My high range isn't great, but I can manage a high Bb...

    I got a Prestige in the early 2000's that replaced a Hirsbrunner (oh what a mistake I made unloading the Hirsbrunner) and if 10 of these Besson Prestige horns (mine included) had been sent to someone...

    Hmmm.... I might be tempted to sell my Dolce and give this one a try. Sure looks nice, and I have to admit to being intrigued. This would not replace my Adams (which is irreplaceable), but would...
