    That's perfectly fine. The green stuff is mineral deposits stained green from the oxidized copper in the brass. You also can get a reddish oxidation on the surface of brass as well. I would just...

    Is this visible from the outside of the slide, or is this something you are seeing on the interior of the slide? Are you able to post pictures of this?

    You can get corrosion on the inside of...

    Aren't the current production all CNC lathe made? They should be extremely consistent now, while back in the "old days" when the template, scoop, or drill bit got worn, the specs would change a bit....

    Just remember that they are now known as just Giddings, so if you want a new mouthpiece, looking for G&W won't really find you much.

    With stainless steel, it seems that people either love them, or...

    I just received my own standard Wick 4AL, and I do have to say, I like it. I was using a Hammond 11L, and it just seems to have something that the Hammond doesn't. A Richer tone maybe.

    I think the valve guides are round, but they are worn. This horn looks to have possibly been a school horn, and it's entirely possible that the leadpipe angle is due to a repair or drop as it is due...
  8. Does my Euph Leadpipe need Adjustment?

    I've been playing more euphonium lately, and as a "downstream" player, I find it hard to get in a comfortable playing position with my horn. Looking at pictures of other Euphoniums, I can't tell if...

    What kind of valve oil were you using before? It may have anti-corrosion properties that are removing oxidation from the valve casings and/or tubes.

    The trombone community looks at this a little differently, because in most cases, the leadpipe and receiver are one piece. There are some makers like King that use a 2 piece leadpipe, but most use...

    Looks like the 1065H is already on hold.

    Has the virtuoso model number always been the 1065? The Perantucci / Sterling I have is a 1065GHS, which I guess means gold brass heavy bell?

    What are the valve casings made of? My Sterling has stainless pistons with Nickel Silver valve casings, which when oxidized, can take on an orange color. As I continue to bring the horn back from...

    Well, triggers are a relatively new feature that previously was only done on a custom basis. Many professional players did quite well for decades on compensating horns without triggers, either by...

    An easy thing to do is to grab a friend/relative/etc and play a note that really causes that vibration. Then have them touch parts of the horn you suspect. You can also do this yourself somewhat. ...

    I would first check the valve caps, top and bottom, as well as the adjustment for the trigger. Make sure that the trigger linkage is lubricated as well.

    The Hercules is a good stand, and also can hold a sizeable tuba without issue. Very stable and well made. However, definitely NOT easily portable.

    With finish, you've got pretty much silver and/or gold plating, and some type of lacquer....

    In that case, I would decide on a budget, and look for a used compensating euphonium. There are a good number of Besson horns from the past 50 or so years floating around. Dillon Music had a few...

    Just remember, there are always professional USED horns looking for a good home. I picked up an older Sterling Perantucci model for less than a new Eastman 374 would cost.

    What kind of Euphonium are you currently playing, and what is your level of experience?

    For people starting out, can't go wrong with finding a used Yamaha YEP-321.

    I'm still torn on MTS vs the SKB. Not having a storage compartment in the SKB is a real detraction. I like to keep everything I need IN the case.
