    I share a similar past as being a Boy Scout bugler while my dad was stationed in Germany in the 1950's.

    As for the bugle, Bb as far as I know. I think today that The U.S. Army Band is the only...

    Good question. I know the HBC I am getting will fit the Adams. Not so sure about the Dolce. [Timeout] Just back from checking to see if the standard Adams bottom cap for the 4th valve is...

    My HBC arriveth tomorrow, me thinks. It is half way through South Dakota today, and I am in the other half. Anxious to try it. I already liked the heavy cap I borrowed from Doug Ruby.

    Oh, I doubt that!! I think they enjoy your playing. But it does surprise you when a spring breaks, not expected at all, ever!

    I play multiple instruments with decent success. Euphonium is clearly my main instrument, and I devote most of my time to it. But I do also play a lot of trombone, tenor in one orchestra and bass...

    The Taylor 814 was what I traded in to get the Taylor 912 (rather what my wife traded for me!). Those are really nice guitars.

    The Yamaha FG 1500 is indeed a great guitar. Brazilian rosewood. And the backs of those guitars are really beautiful. After posting my arsenal of instruments, I broke out the Taylor to play for a...

    I suppose the length of time you practice (or devote to practicing) is somewhat dependent on your goals, expectations, participation level in ensemble music and your own unique circumstances dealing...

    I had to have my name engraved on the Adams (wife request) so that I would never sell or trade it!! My wife has never once said "no" when I was in the instrument buying mood. In fact, one Christmas...

    So don't get rid of either!! I love my Adams E3, and I also love my 1956 Boosey & Hawkes Imperial, so I do not plan to part with either. Throw in the Wessex Dolce that I own, that's three...

    I think there are actually only two fellows, Scott and Doug (playing euph and tuba). I suspect that there is some overdubbing being done to get all the parts recorded, and possibly the recording...

    Okay, Mike and Doug, I stand corrected, or rather I sit corrected as I type this. So Doug, I blew on your horn, hope you can forgive me!! I tried not to yuck it up too much. But those valves were...

    Hymn to the Fallen

    This is an extremely nice and well done musical tribute to the heroes of our freedom and democracy. The 75th anniversary of the end of World War II.

    Jonathan is "the man" when it comes to taking care of customers. You just don't see that kind of immediate (once he knows about it) attention very often. I remain very impressed with service after...

    When I played on an Adams with short throw valves at the ITEC at Knoxville in 2016, I am pretty sure that the model of horn with the short valves was an E2. I know Dave spent a fair amount of time...

    Thanks for that piece of news, Don. I didn't know that at all. I was quite frankly very surprised that the Demondrae worked so well for me with the Adams trombone. I had to ask several of my trust...

    I agree that some trombone mouthpieces don't seem to produce the euphonium sound that I (or others) like. And I suppose vice-versa as well. I play both euphonium and trombone (a lot), so I have had...

    I can definitely hear a distinct difference between the standard cap and both of the heavy caps in Dave's videos. The full sized heavy cap delivers a more robust sound, yet at the same time, a...

    In looking at the Army Bugle Calls, this one does not seem to be on the list. I don't recognize it, but that doesn't mean much, because a lot of the bugle calls sort of resemble a lot of the other...
