    The 52E2 would feel large to you, probably, because of the thinner, rounded rim. But the 52D might be good based on specs (I have not tried this personally).

    FWIW, I have yet to find a Schilke...

    New Bente Illevold Album - ALONE

    I just finished a very pleasurable task of reviewing Bente Illevold's new album, called "Alone" (or in Norwegian, "Alene"). It was a COVID shutdown project, and appropriately is unaccompanied. It is...

    Here's a new blog post with some advice on the AGR and explanation about why it can be important. After the video the blog shows some photos with measurements to better illustrate the points and...

  5. Sticky: FS: Nice Conn Short-Action 3-Valve Euphonium from 1946

    This is a nice semi-old horn from the days when Conn was making great instruments. It has an adjustable bell and comes with a Besson case. (I guess you can make people think you have a Besson until...

    Thanks for getting those details! It's going to fun to see how it develops. I'll be at a regional ITEC in May; maybe Shires can have something to display there, assuming they want to come all the way...

    Lee did the same polishing on my valves. He is not using an abrasive like a lapping compound, just something akin to the Flitz that I use. There can be deposits that build up over time and are the...

    That reminds me of one of my theories! Blue Juice and other standard oils DO require more frequent application, and that is not necessarily a bad thing. Because I have the habit of always wiping down...

    I'm right where you are for the springs! The originals were too soft for me. I like the Mead Light as well for simplicity, but I personally bought 2 sets of the normal Mean springs so I could avoid...

    Mine can be very fast when I'm using Blue Juice or Hetmann #1. I'm also testing the Yamaha light oil, which seems similar to Hetmann but maybe not quite as light.

    Are all 3 valves about the same?...

    It's always a judgement call. Part of it visual math. A half-inch dent in the leadpipe is probably serious, but in the bottom bow it's not a big deal. My original Sterling Virtuoso picked up a large,...

    Thanks, folks! I was on my way out the door when I saw this, so I hurried to enter it. Not sure I've ever seen a non-comp Hirsbrunner, so I missed that. The title and my assessment of the price have...
  13. Sticky: FS: Hirsbrunner NON-Compensating Euphonium for Excellent Price

    This is coming from the Netherlands, but shipping is free. The horn is in very nice shape from what I can see, and the buy-it-now price is $$3,250. That is a good price for a Hirsbrunner!

  14. FS: Besson 3-Valve Compensating Euph - New Standard - LOW PRICE

    Here is another 3-valve compensating Besson. Condition looks good, although I THINK the edge of the bell may need to be rolled out (an easy job for a good repair shop). It comes with a hard case....

    Congratulations on getting that unique mouthpiece! I considered one myself (I was playing a 4AL when it came out) - the satin silver would have looked great poking out of my Adams!

    Welcome to the forum!

    First, you DO have valve guides. Otherwise the pistons would rotate at random and the ports (holes) would not line up. You probably have small metal guides at the top of the...
