    Ha, I agree. As I get older ALL the parts are harder.

    Congrats John on your new Adams T-bone! Sounds great.

    It’s nice to have a wife who says, “Get it, it’s the best sounding trombone I’ve heard you play on”.

    Oh man, Morgan Griffiths is/was my all-time favorite for sweet sounding euphonium playing. I think he liked playing his Besson 966 the best if I recall. His playing of "Lament" on "Cry of the Celts"...

    Drying the outside of the instrument with a towel works fine for me. I just let the insides air dry out for awhile after blowing through the horn to get most of the water out. As far as springs go...

    Most of the video is good but I would never use a hammer to loosen a valve cap - although he does cover the cap with a towel first. I wouldn’t use Brasso on the slide legs too often. Brass is soft...

    I agree that some horns sound stuffy with those alternate fingerings. My Yamaha 641 was that way... especially 1-4 (Eb), 2-4 (E). 1-3 was okay for Eb. I used 4 for 6th partial 'F' concert just fine....
