    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...

    All kidding aside, I recently tried the wedge...

    The Tank flight case

    Has anyone had experience with "The Tank" flight cases? I'm considering buying one but I'd love to get some feedback.

    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.
  8. 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.

    I wanted to take my E3 with me, but it was going to cost an extra $800...

    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.

    Yes, I have the XR, and played it for a few days.

    I feel itís small, and sounds significantly brighter than any of the rest of the SM series. It also lacks core of sound for me.

    I played an SM4X and felt the rim was sharper than I liked.

    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.

    I know you werenít asking me, but Iíll interject.

    I play on the K&G 3.5, and I came from both a SM3X and SM4X.

    I find the K&G 3.5 to feel similar in size to the SM4X, with the same openness,...

    I think there are a number of players in the UNT studio that play adams. It would possibly be worth reaching out.

    Ok, so I played on this piece for a while.

    First, while it carries the SM4 name, it feels SUBSTANTIALLY smaller than any of the other SM4s to me. (Standard, U, and X). In fact, it could have...

    Back when I owned a 642S, I played a standard SM3 by wick and felt that it worked well.

    I also had played a 51D on it for quite some time, and it worked well also.
