    Well, my goal is to have all the most appropriate instruments for all of the opportunities I might have to do playing with quality groups. No more, no less. I don't get any joy just from having them,...

    I agree with mbrooke on the short DE shanks. I know Doug likes those extra long shanks but on every single instrument I have gone through the whole process of choosing a doug elliott mouthpiece on,...

    most english-style baritones have 9" or larger bells, but that's irrelevant. Bach 6.5AL would be my first thought for such an instrument, or a Wick 6BS which is a little larger but still in the same...

  9. "yellow brass finish" vs. "gold brass finish"...

    "yellow brass finish" vs. "gold brass finish" isn't really a thing. I mean, there are gold-tinted lacquers that are darker than clear lacquers, but what you really are talking about there is the a...

    Thanks, Dave. I swore I would never own another Besson/Buffet Crampon instrument after the awful customer service I received from them on the multiple 2052 and 2056 I used to own. The Jin Bao is...

    I love my Yamaha Neo but I've just started a brass band and I'm looking for a good instrument for our 2nd player! Wessex seems to be out of stock on their web site so I'm looking to see what's out...

    Some of the recordings of Black Dyke and other British bands from the 1960s era show very clearly that they were grappling with much more than just "slightly" sharp 6th partial notes even then,...

    my repair guy uses scotch brite green scouring pads to clean corrosion off tuning slide legs--never pistons though and not trombone slides either. I wouldn't do steel wool on any instrument part...

    Having played examples of each, but never identical instruments with the bead wire being the only difference, I can't speak directly to what the soldered bead wire does on euphonium. I do however...

    I'll play them in all 12 keys! It's great transposition and ear training practice because you know them all so well. Octave down is great for developing low register and it also really does amazing...

    I think the 11.5" bell is actually a heavier gauge bell. I think the 11.5" bell model is intended to compete with the Willson 2900. Notice that while both models are available with both sizes of...

    ahh, I think it's a Blessing M-200. So it would have been made at Blessing's factory in Elkhart. I believe that model uses the tooling from the old Olds marching trombone which was highly regarded.
