    Looks like it comes with all 3 mouthpiece adapters and the case keys as well.

    For a little less money, I'd pull the trigger on this one - hirsbrunner has been on my list for a long while.

    Seems a little pricy to me, but it looks like a gem.

    I wonder which valves are in it.

    I do have the alliance DC series. I found them to feel very 'tight'. Maybe a smaller throat than I like? I tried DC2 and DC3. Not for me.

    Hey Guido,

    That's interesting. I find that stainless feels darker to me than brass, although I haven't played the same piece in brass as in stainless. So the design is also a factor there.

    I know this thread is almost a year old, but I thought I'd add a bit.

    I just received a Titanium version of the Stainless piece I've been playing.

    It's a Giddings DHWA-S, which is apparently...

    I currently own a gold lacquer prestige, a silver Sovereign with trigger, and a Geneva Cardinal (and played extensively on a GVL before the cardinal).

    I'm currently playing the gold prestige.

    Sean, if youd like, Id be happy to loan you the set of hammond pieces I have.

    Maybe this is the start of my mouthpiece lending library.

    I have a 10XL, and it works very well on the euphonium. It’s a little more bowl shaped than many purpose built euphonium mouthpieces.

    I had Karl custom make me a 9XL as well, and it also works...

    Update:

    I had Martin Wilk make some valve buttons for me, and while they're not concave, they're textured and made of delrin, so my fingers aren't slipping off the buttons. All's well that ends...

    Not to mention that on the horn mentioned (the besson prestige), that note has a tendency to be a dog. Ive played 5 or 6 examples of a prestige, and its been not bad on one of them. (The one I...

    Hi Franz,

    I've also played the 3D+ and 3.5D+, and echo your sentiment. For me, the "standard" versions felt just a bit "tubby" in terms of sound. The + versions allowed me to make the sound more...

    That horn sounds very nice indeed.

    When I played the prototype, I thought it felt like it leaned heavily toward Willson/Hirsbrunner/Miraphone in terms of concept of sound; it sounds like you...

    The horn drop shipped from buffet, and arrived well packed.

    It plays more or less identically to the one I initially had from Thomann. The serial number seems to place it as the 1386th besson...

    In this context, the DC4 sounds brighter to me, and I prefer the DC3. That tracks with my experience comparing the DC2 and DC3.
