    Barry's advice is, as usual, spot on. A few additional thoughts:

    1. With the mic placement Barry's suggesting, an SM57 is going to be almost all direct sound. Unlike a condenser or ribbon, you're...

    My experience as someone who doubles between trumpet and euphonium tends to align with Dave's thinking on this. I find I can actually be lazier in my double tonguing speed on trumpet than on...

    In addition to the great advice above, I would recommend two other things:

    1. Make sure you're tuning all the slides on the instrument every time you play. Unlike trumpet, where you have throw...

    Hi Howellsimon,

    Unless you're regularly playing music that goes below low F# (treble clef) on Baritone, you might do well to consider a 3-valve compensating baritone. They tend to have a better...

    Arban is fond (possibly overly so) of chromatic lower neighbor tones while he doesn't use augmented chords much at all. Also, I really can't see him blurring chord quality lines by mixing a #5 and a...

    You'll want to use the C bass clef part. Bb bass clef is for folks in certain countries in continental Europe like Belgium that have a transposing bass clef tradition. The Brit tradition is based on...

    One other thing about The Melody Shop: A significant portion of the woodwinds are playing the 8th note line along with the euphoniums. That makes a breath sneaked here or there less apparent.

    I can't speak to the age factor, but I will say that playing trumpet only occasionally is more likely to be frustrating than fun. As someone who has doubled on both regularly for the past decade or...

    The picture on the Baltimore Brass site shows an oval 5-valve Bariton. The 11.25" bell measurement and curved linkage arms would indicate that it's an early 54L. Miraphone currently makes a 5-valve...

    When I've learned, it was using the exaggeration of "ta" in which some air pressure is built up ahead of the consonant. In the strictest sense, it's the extra air at the start of the attack that...

    Out of curiosity, I've been reading Carl Kleinstuber's written dissertation. His argument, in short, is that the unique color of the French tuba should be preserved so that the intent of French...

    My thinking is along a similar line. The analogy I was going to use was a Swiss Army Knife. I've got one that has a knife blade, small wood saw, and scissors among other things. In a pinch, those are...

    I wonder if Adams is trying to make inroads on the market for Yamaha 321s? With this being free blowing, it seems like a good target market would pro trombonists doubling on euphonium.

    The "rumble strip" effect you mention is called a double buzz. It's what happens when your embouchure is trying to produce a pitch between a pair that the instrument will resonate at.

    Cynically, a "pro horn" is what a non-professional buys when he wants the horn to do the work for him. :rolleyes:

    As a concept it was going to get done sooner or later. The particulars of the arrangement really didn't engage me. A lot of the interest that Sousa wrote into the...

    If you use a lot of pressure, you're going to want to stay away from the SM Ultra and Ultra-X mouthpieces. They have a sharp inner rim.

    With that said, it sounds like you might want to experiment...

    Welcome! How do you do singing something instead of playing it? Or, how do you do playing something extremely simple with a metronome?
