    I started this thread as I thought it might be of interest to those of you (and me) who play in community bands, in professional groups, in colleges and secondary schools, or just generally anywhere...

    You sure can't fault Wessex and Jonathan for their extraordinary customer care and attention to customer concerns. Wish all horn makers were as attentive and concerned with their product and...

    Thanks, Guido. I still am not totally satisfied with the recording setup and results I get. The sound is a little off from what I hear when playing. It is a little "foghornish" sounding to me. It...

    I am a little concerned about the Sinfonico as well. I have owned a Dolce for several years, and it is a very good horn and has served me well when I used it full time for about 6 months, and now...

    Nice videos Tim. I prefer the Warburton as well. I have been on that mouthpiece for about 6 years now. The 4AL is nice also, but I guess I like the little darker, warmer sound of the Warburton.

    Okey-dokey. Here is a comparison of the Wick 4AL mouthpiece and the Demondrae Warburton mouthpiece. The tune is "Old Man River" and it covers some of the lower register notes on the euphonium.

    The K&G and Warburton seem pretty similar to me when I listen live as I play. I still can't quite capture on video what I think I am hearing live, but it is getting closer. You might be hearing...

    Coming right up. Give me a little bit to get it done. I will post the K&G vs Warburton in my original post and here, too.

    Here is the requested video (K&G 3.5D vs Warburton): ...

    Triple Tonguing and Rapid Slurring

    I try to find interesting ways to practice, ways that keep me engaged and improving on various facets of my playing. I got fairly good at double and triple tonguing early on in my euphonium playing,...
  11. Wick 4AL - Demondrae Warburton - K&G 3.5D Comparisons - Videos

    Okay, Dave started this so I got motivated to compare a couple more mouthpieces. My two videos compare the Wick 4AL with the Warburton Demondrae Thurman Signature mouthpiece and the Wick 4AL with...

    I, too, learned how to triple tongue using tu-tu-ku as the syllables. I have been able to get pretty fast with this. I agree with Dave on the usefulness of tu-ku-tu with arpeggios like he...

    Gee Whiz!! Now I am just a wee bit interested in something I thought I would never be interested in. Maybe I will try one of these things. Although the aesthetics won't be particularly great as I...

    I am one of those folks who started on trumpet and treble clef. I learned bass clef in high school and eventually became fluent at it (no transposing in the brain). I then took on tenor clef, which...

    I use the Yamaha trombone slide cream (when I remember). Works good on my Adams with trigger. Slide-o-mix (trombone product) is another possibility. Some people just use oil, some use a very light...

    I didn't particularly like the OEM mouthpiece that came with my Wessex Dolce a few years ago, both how it played and how it looked. I can't remember the model number, and I don't have it any longer...

    This is quite useful. Thanks for doing this Dave. I have the 4AL along with the K&G 3.5 and the Demondrae Warburton that I may do the same thing on. The 3AL I believe is the biggest you compared. ...

    That, my friend, gives new meaning to the term "valve bounce"! That is valve bounce followed by re-bounce followed by bounce-again. Something is very, very off with that. I can only imagine a...

    This is a particularly good point, that is, the first part about the weather being warm. My Adams E3 verges on being a "flat horn". I have my main tuning slide out just a wee bit. I do have to...

    The tuning "trigger" on the Geneva is really interesting. It looks sort of like the typical 4th side valve on a 3+1 horn instead of the flat trigger placed in the third valve wrap. I am just trying...
