    I have an E3 and forgot to order fancy buttons when I ordered the horn. Later I ordered a set with the green abalone inserts. They are gorgeous. You may also be able to specify the plating on the...

    Thanks Dave. I moved from a 2900 to an E3 with SS bell because I couldnít put enough air through the Willson (among other reasons). Maybe thatís me but I donít have that issue with the Adams and I...

    Not saying itís not a good sound. Itís a great sound but itís too small of a sound for todayís bands, especially brass bands. I know many here play in these ensembles and they often require huge...

    Copy is a cop out word on this case. The basic design is over 100 years old. Current euphoniums are evolutions of that design not copies. Also, each brand and model has their own characteristic sound.

    No maintenance on mine. Every now and then Iíll loosen the set screw and receiver to make sure they move freely. I just had my tech clean the horn but Iím not sure if he did anything to the AGR. He...

    You will feel the difference in how notes respond. Experiment with legato, staccato and other tonguing as well as slurred intervals. I expect you will feel a difference. By the way, your current...

    The AGR adjustment changes response and slotting. I havenít played with mine in a while as Iím happy where it is but I suggest you experiment and see what works best for you. Try it all the way in...

    From what Iíve read here, if you like the 2900 sound, good alternatives are the Adams E2 and the Shires Q41. Horns are very personal choices so I hope you get the chance to play as many as possible....

    Itís heavy but infinitely safer than a gig bag. It seems to be a mix of a hard case and gig bag.

    Iím not up on used horn prices but that seems a lot for a 40 plus year old horn. I played a round stamp Boozey in college and my memories are the sound was lovely but the intonation not so much. We...

    Iíve had my E3 for only 15 months and I agree with Dave and John. The AGR is plenty robust. Itís a fairly simple device. Just a threaded lead pipe and corresponding sleeve plus the set screw. Each is...

    My description may not be accurate and certainly your experience may differ. Thereís a reason so many high quality players on this site have chosen this Adams.

    My choice is a Doug Elliott with 102 rim (25.9mm), I cup (similar to 51D) and 8 shank which is standard large shank backbore. Itís similar to a 51D with a larger rim.

    Interesting. I went from a 2900 to an E3 with SS bell. I couldnít push enough air through the Willson, likely because of the thickness of the tubing. Not a problem with the .6mm tubing on the Adams....

    The leadpipe goes into the first valve. Can you snake it from the valve port and push it out the leadpipe? Or push it thru the leadpipe and out the valve?
