    Pomp and showmanship have their places, but really, one should never sacrifice good tone and musicianship!

    Thank you, Dave! I'll give it a try tonight and post my results. And yes, I used a YEP-321S two decades ago. :)
  3. You can piano a tuna, but can you tune a Willson?

    I've owned my Willson 2950TA since September, and it seems that the tuning slides are about worthless. I seem to have to adjust everything from the embouchure alone. Is this correct in your...

    A little follow up... I am in love with my Willson 2950TA. The sound is so much more rich than the old Yamaha YEP-321S I played years ago. I'm still having trouble getting enough air to fill this...
  5. Willson Original Case Hinges Are Weak

    When I received my Willson 2950TA, it came with an OEM case. It must have been dropped a few times because there is relatively weak support along the three external hinges. It makes me leary of...

    I've tried a lot of different sizes now, loaned from my local store and my daughter's band director. The best so far has been a Willson 51. The Bach 6 1/2 AL wasn't bad either. I still want to try...

    Incidentally, I bought the one pictured and it arrived a couple days ago. He reused the listing for mine and hasn't update the pics for the auction. I offered $3000 and he countered for $3500, which...

    Good advice. Thank you, Marco, and I agree about overthinking it. I expect to find one and stick with it for the long haul. I bet I could try any mouthpiece that fits and make noise with it, and...

    Thank you to for the advice on where to start. Perhaps my local music store has a couple on hand and I can try. As I said, it's been a while, so I'm sure I need to rebuild my embouchure, but it's...

    Thank you, @DaveWerden and @RickF for your kind and encouraging words. I kick myself sometimes for not going for the Marine Bands or even 8th & I when I had a chance. Cest la vie, cest la guerre.
