    Jonathan, I'm looking forward to seeing the video, but it is "private" and I can't view it. Could you please fix the visibility for that video? Thanks!

    Thank you! I don't know how I missed that last night (although the photos aren't great). When I stare at the bell photo I can see it now, although I think I immediately enlarged the photo last night,...
  3. Sticky: FS: Conn 3-Valve Curved Bell Euphonium in Silver

    This is listed as a "Martin" but is actually a Conn. It is in very nice shape based on photos. Conns typically have a very pretty tone, along with good response and intonation. Nice hard case...

    I use Herco Spitballs once a week and it really helps keep the airways clean.

    Ah, now I remember! The upscale kings had a recess in the top valve cap, so the finger button's edges could fit into it. The Cleveland had a raised center to the cap, but no recess (or channel) in...

    King had two lines that I knew of when I was in the CG Band - the cheaper was the King Cleveland, which is what we used for marching gigs. The reason we chose that one is that it had a little less...

    Ah, then you want a small shank (i.e. "tenor trombone") mouthpiece.

    The go-to mouthpiece for instruments like this would be the Bach 6-1/2AL. If you want a little larger mouthpiece, I would not go larger than a Bach 5G.

    4th Valve with Left Hand

    In various discussions we have talked about whether it is more or less awkward to use the left hand for the 4th valve than to use the pinky of the right hand. That is a topic related to the very...

    But of course! It comes with both clefs. You can buy it from SheetMusicPlus or Cimarron (each offers a download version if you like).

    It is significant to note that the 41 has a soldered bell bead, while the 40 has an unsoldered (crimped) bead.

    FWIW, my impressions of the Shires euphoniums are part of this blog post:

    Here's a shot in the dark. Are you missing any accessory items from your case? I once had a bottle of valve oil find its way down the bell and partway around the first curve. The horn played, but it...
  17. Sticky: FS: 3-Valve Besson Bell-Front Compensating Euphonium

    This looks like a nice bargain! Buy-it-now price is $699.99, and the horn is in very nice condition. Case is included. This was made in the 1950's and would have the full, rich Besson sound. You're...

    A tenor horn is considered conical. The tone is brighter than a French horn because of the mouthpiece and bell, and possibly some other bore differences, but they are conical.

    Congratulations on the new CD! It's nice to see efforts to use conical brass, particularly when that is what the composer(s) expected.

    You are correct. (Because my bell is a brushed finish, I would not want to have to polish it. That could gradually "wear down" the brush effect.)
