    There are a gazillion brass players with lip hair, including many tuba and euphonium players (where the larger mouthpiece is more likely to rest on top of the hair). I'm sure it will take a little...

    For my own practice, I find that I am perfectly capable (and apparently subconsciously happy) to push a note sharp that is otherwise in tune. High F is one example. It may be because I played horns...

    First, you might look at this video on warming up. It's my system, and it is quite flexible. That is to say, you can shorten it up to get yourself...

    Those pictures cry out with a message: that person should have bought a different horn! I have to think that all those plates would "stiffen" the horn, lessen its overall vibration, but perhaps give...

    Nice use of the piccolo, too!

    The whole thing is tastefully played, which is usually the case with the British!

    Right you are! Not sure how I missed that one. BTW, the video doesn't show other areas of the horn where more plates might be hidden.

    I have play-tested one of these in the mid(?) 1980's and it was a pretty good horn. I think it would do nicely as a "filler" horn for you.

    I am in the "use what works" camp. For me the deciding factor is whether I need the 3rd slide to be longer for 23, and if that makes it too long for 3 alone on concert G (or D).

    FWIW, I like the...

    Welcome to the forum!

    Of course the choice of a horn is complex and controlled by what your own tastes are. Perhaps your tastes are still evolving, though.

    I'm trying to find out. It's possible he is just getting a newer model with a trigger, for example, but I'll update here if I learn more.

    The Sterling's intonation without the trigger is in line with several other top horns. The upper Eb is the worst note for most folks, and I would probably use 13 fingering on it. If you do that, the...
