    I had the opportunity to play the prototype of this horn - it played reasonably, but not as well as their production models. I'm curious about this horn in its production state, though. We'll see.

    I have the same curiosity - Definitely my two besson baritones are very different despite both being of German manufacture.

    Is besson still reputed to be inconsistent in quality, I wonder? ...
  5. Besson Anniversary Euphonium, York, Prestige, and relative merit

    So Besson did a handful of Besson 180th anniversary euphoniums in the frosted finish; I believe they are sovereigns with an added trigger.

    I saw Lee Harrelson playing one this weekend with...

    I use Tonal Energy as a tuner - it's nice because it will allows for both equal temperament and just intonation. For playing with drones, that can be helpful.

    I've been fully digital for music reading for about 2.5 years at this point. I use the 12.9" iPad pro, as it's approximately the same size as a standard 8.5x11" sheet of paper.

    I did get a weird second chance offer from eBay, but the final price was $1900 plus $200 shipping, which ends up at the $2100 figure you saw.

    I bought this horn for $1900 plus shipping. I figured I can’t go
    Wrong.

    It does seem heavier than other horns of this era I’ve played.

    The valve caps/buttons and some slides appear to have...

    Let me clarify - I wasn't as clear as I could have been.

    On both horns, with the AGR out 5.5 turns, the short valve set seems to have SLIGHTLY more backpressure. I came in 1 turn to 4.5 on the...

    New E3 with Short Valves

    A couple years ago, I bought an E3 with SS bell and trigger. It's a great horn! After spending time on Sterling, Miraphone, Willson, and Besson, I felt I had found the horn I wanted, both in terms...

    I’ve got an old new standard from the late 60s/early 70s. Maybe I’ll put that in a Cronkhite bag and see how it goes. I wouldn’t be heartbroken if that horn was damaged the way I would with my E3.
  21. Euphoninum rental - Los Angeles area

    I'm traveling for work next week, and I'd like to rent a horn for the week while I'm out there so I can continue practicing.

    Interesting - I also had my hand brace come off on that side on my E3. I wonder if Adams just goes light on the hand brace solder.

    I moved to the DC3 and really liked the rim contour, but felt the throat was small, and I couldnít use air the way I prefer.
