    Some of you have offered the advice of trying a Wessex Festivo, a four valve in front compensating horn. The OP has a 4 valve in front horn now and wonders about a 4 valve on top horn, particularly...

    I can see how that might happen, that is, to have the spit valve opened by you pressing against it. Do you have a main slide trigger on your Neo? I'm thinking you don't. Even though this may be a...

    Well, Arthur Lehman would be impressed. He used about the biggest mouthpiece for euphonium I have ever seen. I don't know what it was. I played for a while with him in the National Concert Band of...

    I suppose a 4 valve on top compensating horn could be built, Wessex does a 4 valve in front compensating horn. It is just a matter of figuring out how to lay out all of the tubing into a somewhat...

    Agreed, Jim!! There really should be maybe a separate night for actual music like classical (instrumental and opera), jazz, wind ensemble, Sinatra/Streisand/CÚline Dion type stuff, etc. That would...

    Okey-dokey, the method with boiling water, baking soda and aluminum lined pan worked great on my tuba mouthpiece. And something that I didn't expect, although should have, is when you take the...

    John,

    I shared this with my wife, who knows things, unlike me, and she said she had heard about this method in "Hints From Heloise" just recently. I had a Wessex tuba sitting out in my music room...

    I experienced the exact same thing as Doug in hot weather. I have owned my Adams E3 about 3 1/2 years now. A year ago I left it with Lee Stofer in Iowa to remove a pin prick of a dent in the bottom...

    Okay, I have to follow that up. Short action valves for euphonium usually mean that the holes in the valves are squished along with the tubing coming out of the valve casing. The shape is...
