    I've been looking at getting one of these as well. What's the biggest difference in playability versus a traditional 3 + 1 instrument?

    The last front-4 I played was my middle school's old...

    We're all shut down here in Nashville, too, and it's definitely for the best. We've got a lot of people in the highest risk population (as I suspect most community bands do), and so I don't...

    This EUM-621 looks like another Yahama 621 clone. There's an EUM-721 that's compensating, but I don't see a trigger mechanism on it. It looks like a Besson-style horn.

    As far as I can tell, the...

    Melody Shop as a solo by choice....I bet that was more fun than it had any right to be. I wish that was an option instead of a requirement the last time my band played it!

    You're not too far from the 390 Tollway, it looks. I might have to seriously consider making an appointment (but not taking the overpriced toll road to get there) for when I'm hiking up to Rosemont...

    Agreed. I'd like to see more trade schools here in the States, but that would require undoing close to 40 years of indoctrination that college is the only meaningful way to better yourself. Some...

    It's a shame that this seems to be the way things are going, but such is how they are in a country that can't have nice things (like quality music programs in schools). However, it is the case, so...

    I'm not sure about the ultrasonic part, but I do agree with a cleaning of the valves and block when switching between any two valve oils. I think it has less to do with petroleum versus synthetic...

    It's a shame that the Besson Brevete from another thread here is for US sale only. Four valves, bell-front and compensating would be quite the conversation starter in band.

    Yes. It is the same model. The odds of finding two of these for sale at the same time has to be fairly small.

    I can't imagine trying to clean this one out. Compensating tubing on a 3 + 1 is...

    I think it's a good thing I don't have the spare change for this. That's a great price, and Nashville isn't too long a drive....

    Gotta finish paying off the car first, though!

    Sounds like you might have found a sibling of my horn.

    On the positive side, I find it easy to get a nice, full sound from my horn. It's a heavier horn that most modern ones, but I think that...

    I learn something new every day: the displacement of a euphonium is about 6.9 cubic feet!

    My horn is jealous that it only gets to ride in an Elantra. It does know how to drive stick, though.

    I'm wondering if "Jinbao" is becoming a sort of generic term for Chinese stencil horns because it's the best-known factory that they come out of.

    It'd be a bit of a shame if so; a Mack is not a...
