  1. FS: LOOK SOON - 3-Valve Compensating Besson Euphonium - RH Valves - Curved Bell

    This 1948 horn has a decent collection of small dents, but I didn't notice any major structural issues from the photos. It has a removeable curved bell, but is otherwise configured like the standard...
  2. FS: NIce Conn 4-Valve Upright Bell Front-Valve 5i Euphonium

    Condition of this horn looks very good. The photo of the valves shows what I'd call normal wear, and the interior of the case (no photo of the exterior) looks very good. Current bid is $81. This...

    A 4-valve non-compensating euphonium has some problems in the low register when you combine the 4th and other valves. There is no good way to get a true scale. A compensating system helps to solve...
  4. Sticky: FS: Wessex Dolce 4-Valve Euphonium in Lacquer

    This horn looks to be in very nice condition. It is 2-1/2 years old. The starting bid is $650 (but there is a reserve). Includes case & mouthpiece.

    Arul,

    Thanks for that extra insight! It was a cleverly-designed device from what I can see. Maybe it was a Zig Kanstul innovation.

    Nothing wrong with the basic idea. The 2280 has a provision for a left-hand push-slide-ring for the 3rd valve, so you'd have to decide to either abandon that option (if it is included on the...

    I'm a little hazy on the model names, but the 2-tone bell, bell angle, and valve angle all look like Olds.
  8. Sticky: FS: Interesting 3-Valve Bell-Front with 3rd-Valve Trigger

    This looks a bit like an Olds Artist, but I can't be sure. I THINK the 3rd-valve trigger was an add-on - I don't recall any model like this in the catalogs. I think it is an Olds because of the...
  9. Holst 1st Suite Opening Phrase - LIP SLURS

    This is a very important piece for the band world, and consequently for euphonium players. The first 8 bars are for the tuba and euphonium sections, and anyone looking briefly at the notes would rate...

    I don't care for in-ear phones for this type of use, personally. Here are the two factors that fight each other:

    1. You want to be able to hear the recorded part clearly, whether it is a musical...

    No, not me! At least, not until/unless I get rid of several cubic feet of other horns first!!

    FWIW, my own journey to get comfortable with a 4AL was a bit long, but I was trying to do it while engaged in a fairly tough playing job where I could not control what I played when. So I had to be...

    Pitch and Octave Notation

    I made a chart for showing how we refer to notes and the octave they are in. This is patterned after the ITEA guide, except I added a Bb euphonium part in transposed notation. That is just for a...

    Micah,

    Have you thought about contacting Mr. Wiseman (the carbon-fiber case maker)? He has expanded his line to include accessories like wallets! Seems like he is positioned well to make an...

  19. Dave Werden, Faure: "Les berceaux" - Euphonium and Piano

    This video is from a Lenten service a few weeks ago. I waited to release it until the sheet music was published. BUT, if you look in the YouTube description, you find links to download treble or bass...

    I would avoid that type of horn shown for the now-sold Reynolds. It is a smaller horn, and one that was not popular. Therefore the response and intonation may not be as good as the horns that were...

    There are often used American 3-valve euphoniums ("baritone horns") on eBay. A Conn or King are my favorites, but Holton, Reynolds and Olds are good too. Here is one such:

    Also of note on the Flugabone...it has a .492 bore. For perspective, trumpets are around .460, my little baritone horn is .515 (newer ones are .547), an American style euphonium with curved bell is...

    Sorry you have to dance around a bit, but it is probably a good swap for you. The Flugabone, whoever makes it, has not had nearly the dozen decades of development and tweaking that the compensating...
