    It's not a gig bag per se, but I really like my Packer JPro 856. It's basically a scaled down copy of the marcus bona euphonium case to fit a baritone.

    It's also very helpful if the inner and outer tubes are truly parallel. Lots of brand new high-end instruments are parallel and aligned enough so that they are usable, but not good enough that they...

    I had seen custom one-off fabricated tuning triggers as early as the 1980s and I believe there was a kit available in the 1990s. But of course the Conn Connstellation had one in the 1960s and I think...

    The Festivo started out as a copy of a fairly rare Besson front-action model, which apparently pre-dates the creation of the Marzan, but they did quite a bit of customization of the design (and...

    also work it side to side as you're pulling it off, don't just pull straight. Once you get it off, clean any corrosion off the slide before reassembling. Don't apply too much force as it's not too...

    It's not unusual for european-made instruments to be designed to play at A442 but it's such a small difference that your tuning slide shouldn't have to be almost all the way out. My 56 tunes at 440...

    I'm not sure that's true. A patent from the late 1870s would certainly have a term that would have expired by the beginning of the 20th century. I think it more likely that very few other makers were...

    It would have been designed for something closer to a Elliott F or E cup size, that's what german players would use on it and will probably tune better with an appropriately sized mouthpiece.

    lack of compensating does not mean it is intermediate. Almost no german-style instruments are compensating. Compensating valves were invented in the 1870s.

    Rath's standard thickness for bells is .70mm for the flare and .50mm for the stem. They call it a "750" bell for that reason. They do also make a lightweight bell and a heavy bell but I'm not sure...

    I think that the new standard and early sovereigns like yours had the same bore size. The sovereign had a larger bell and different tapers post-tuning slide. I would assume a different leadpipe...
