    All I really want to do is fart around with some home multitrack recordings. I was in a brass band for a while but it is a 90 minute drive from home, so that got old fast.

    Baritone would just be another Bb horn to play with a slightly different sound. Tenor/Alto would be a chance to try something new. I play a bit of alto trombone, so I am used to the Eb fingerings.

    Alto horns?

    Hey I know this is a euph forum, but it seems like a good place to start. I am toying with getting an alto horn just for the heck of it as something else to play with during what seems like it may be...

    I think I have it sold for $1,200, which includes about $75 shipping, so say $1,100 for the horn. I paid $1,800 in 96 or so, so that's really not too bad.

  19. Intonation and alternate tuning question

    On my Willson 2704 non-comp horn, the A at the top of the bass clef staff is about 30 cents flat, no matter how I finger it, even when the rest of the horn is in good tune. Is that just a quirk on...

    Tuning the 4th Valve Differently

    Changing the subject just a bit - has anyone tried tuning their 4th valve to low E instead of low F? My Willson 2704 can't get quite that far out with the current 4th valve slide. But the C and low F...
