    I definitely do NOT recommend using leather for a mouthpiece pouch, and am amazed that denis wick is making one. The chemicals used to tan leather react quite readily with a lot of metals. I use...

    Yeah, that price is kinda crazy, even with the gold trim and heavy valve cap. I guess they must have searched online and priced it once they knew what it really was?

    True. Really getting some bad vibes. It looks like a good horn but with those picture it'll never go for anywhere near what they are asking.

    Since it's an electro chemical process, it should be able to do a whole horn, as long as you include enough aluminum. The water also needs to be HOT, or else the reaction is slow to non existent,...

    I think originally Dorsey used an Almont mouthpiece, which is definitely quite small. It was also solid silver I believe. I don't think the maker made any mouthpiece but that one size.

    Do you mean with each practice session, or over time? Usually with me this happens because I'm fatigued.

    If you look at most charts, the 7th harmonic is skipped completely. This is why from F3 to F#3 you go from open to 2 - 3. There is a harmonic between the open F3 and Bb3 but it is VERY flat....

    You would need a 5th Valve or a long 1st slide pull to play B0 in tune. For C1 above it you've already got all 4 valves pushed down. The more valves you push down, the sharper the instrument will...

    You can say that again. I was just about to bring my horns in to Dillon Music for some adjustment and de-denting, and now everything is pretty much on hold, for who knows how long.

    I would think in Spain getting either Wick or Yamaha mouthpieces would not be an issue. You an probably get Schilke as well. There are plenty of European dealers, and amazon might sell them too.

    I would definitely try it! Yamaha mouthpieces are also VERY economically priced. That size and style of mouthpiece is a classic Euphonium type.

    The Baltimore Brass writeup calls it a 54L "Kaiserbaritone" in one place, and a 56 Oval Baritone in the other. The 56B looks like a "little tuba", and I also see a 56L, which is oval.

    Yeah, it's just not as durable as the modern epoxy lacquers. Also, it isn't very heat resistant. If you give an older Bach trombone a hot bath... the lacquer falls right off. I think even Bach has...
