    One thing that might be good is if there were some kind of system (a second trigger?) that raise the pitch. There are several notes...

    Maybe my response is too naive, but how about a 4-valve compensating British-style baritone horn? Wessex lists one for $1,586.50 in lacquer finish and Jimlaabs sells their version for $785 in...

    Thanks for all the comments so far.

    I received the Kelly 5G mouthpiece today, and it made no difference for intonation for me on my horn for the high A natural and high A flat.

    Those are quite good prices for a Jinbao 1150. However, I'm pretty sure you are looking at the price including value added tax. When you buy in the US from Germany you don't pay value added tax,...

    Matonizz has video comparing a cheap Indian 3 valve non-compensating euphonium to several other euphoniums. He made them all sound good, though they didn't sound the same. I would say that the Indian...

    MZEP-1150L and MZEP-1150S compensating euphoniums are apparently Jinbao stencil horns. Even the model number (1150) sounds like Jinbao. I've been quite happy with mine.

    Another weird intonation issue

    OK, here's another weird intonation issue I'm having. Let's say I have tuned up and I'm able to play a high Bb concert pitch (Bb4) in tune. When I play an A natural (2nd valve) it's horribly out of...

    5G vs. 51D

    Kelly sells a large shank 5G and a large shank 51D. What difference is there between those two mouthpieces? Is the difference more or less trivial, or is it worth worrying about.

    I would like to...
