    From a guy who owns 9'Bb instruments in 4 different shank sizes, none of which are large shank, and one horn I reamed out to keep it off the list. Do not mix medium shank anything unless you 100%...

    48 to 51 isn't a huge difference. 25.25mm to 25.55mm. You will notice, but it shouldn't be dramatic. Just take some extra time to practice so you get used to the difference.

    Since they've done...

    I have one of those Tenor Sousaphones that you can easily find on ebay. The quality is basically early 1900s at best, which is to say quite poor but playable (more or less). The slides hold air...

    Yeah, none of those are the best deal you can get. (*edit* I mean the first four, not the Bessons. They're fine if you're into those types of horns.) There are some decent Chinese made instruments...

    I'm not a pro or anything, but I own a substantial collection that I play for my own entertainment frequently. My embouchure is most suited for alto, but I'll play whatever I want (darn it!).

    Never heard of 11.1, but if it was, a small shank (10.8mm) would fit the receiver as it's only 6mm difference in length. A small shank mouthpiece with a long enough shank, like a Schilke, will...

    11.5mm shank. Josef Klier sells mouthpieces for this as the option "-B shaft". Probably some other companies do as well, but I've never asked. If you have a custom mouthpiece shop that you prefer,...

    We live in an era where compensating Euphoniums have slide triggers. The C Tuba works in a way similar to the Bass Trombone where it's intended to play below its natural range, but it doesn't have a...

    I can think of two really good reasons right off the top of my head.

    1) Can't match modern day expectations for intonation.

    2) Doesn't have the power to carry a band on its own.

    Hey, can I help? I have some terrible instruments that roughly equate to Euphoniums. Maybe it's helpful for some historical context.

  12. Super Short Guide to Soviet Horns (and how not to hate them)

    I'll keep this first post brief and add more information as it's requested. I have four of these Soviet horns now. Two altos of different sizes, a Tenorhorn, and a Baritone. I know these aren't...

    I know I'm late to the party, but I think it might be more simple than this. Old horns are just different. They literally don't make them like they used to. For some people that's good, and for...

    I hate to be a random new guy that bumps an old thread, but this info needs to exist. I only just recently learned some of this the hard way. If you have a horn needing an obscure shank size,...
