    Probably also the Yamaha YEP-642TSII Neo with Trigger. I've got a few Yamaha horns, and they always are well made and dependable.

    Try it out. For me, i just found it annoying to have facial hair around my lips in general, as well as when playing. It all depends on the person.

    I played trombone with braces for years. You pretty much have to completely re-learn how to use your lips when you've got things on your teeth like that. IMHO the teeth are the "base" upon which the...

    Looks like a great horn! My Sterling is an earlier model, but the level of original construction is very nice. I think the valve tubing on these is usually all Nickel Silver? Mine is as far as I can...

    What mouthpiece are you currently using? Do you know which wedge mouthpiece the Euphonium player was using?

    I tried one a while back, and it didn't give me magical powers of high range. Regardless...

    Most likely, his secret is a tech that lapped the slides for him, making them smoother and decreasing the diameter just a bit. That would make them easier to move, and then he probably uses "Slide...

    Ahhh, now I see. I've seen the adjusting before, but just hadn't seen many people with the string before. I had noticed that most tubas have the first valve slide pointing upwards, so it can be...

    Thinking about the 3+1 compensating system, when did people start using main tuning slide triggers in the widespread sense? Yamaha didn't even have them until 2017, and they are usually pretty on top...

    It all depends on location. In some areas, where they are BIG on band instruments and big on spending on them, they consider anything not top of the line to be "intermediate". So trombone players...

    It's more of a question of mouthpiece receiver size than bore size. For many years, most Euphoniums around had the "medium" or "european" shank, such as pretty much all Bessons. There were also...

    The Yamaha 600-series brass instruments should all be considered "professional". I don't see why anyone could consider the Neo to be "intermediate". I think WWBW used to categorize some instruments...

    I feel that it has a good sound. Very rich. I'm still working on adjusting my "inner sound concept" from trombone to euphonium. But I guess it's not much different from trumpet players who also play...

    Here's the main tuning slide, which looks like it may have taken a hit at some time, though the slide itself is also "warped" like this.

    Finally got pictures, because I'm lazy. It's definitely been used a bit, and if I go by the sticker on the somewhat destroyed case, a previous owner used it in the Junior South Jersey Band, which...

    I should also mention that there are trombone players who have to have tuning slides lengthened or cut down, even on such legendary horns as a Mt Vernon Bach 50 Bass trombone. Even when you have a...

    The frequency charts are REALLY helpful. I was not really expecting the sound to be as different as they do. "On Paper" they are similar specification wise.

    Interesting! I looked on google, and it looks like Marzan/ Willson made a few different versions of that horn. I don't think the Festivo is a stencil of any of them, though I don't doubt that the...

    I don't think I've seen a valve-front compensating horn aside from the Festivo. I have seen a good number of 4 valve front-action horns from Conn over the years of stalking the Baltimore Brass...

    From what I have seen, valve front piston Baritone/Euphoniums are pretty much an American design, and over here there really wasn't a big distinction between the two. Many are also "bell front",...

    Even trying to imagine that is hurting my arm.

    Having played on a 3+1 for a week now, I don't think I can ever go back to 4 valves in a row. It just makes so much more "sense" in my trombonists...

    If you want to go a bit bigger, Yamaha has 51 and 51D small shank mouthpieces, which area bit smaller than the schilke equivalent. Also, Faxx now makes a 51D small shank, but usually you can't find...
