    Franz,

    Good point on the brace between the 4th valve slide and the outer bow. It is indeed moved up from where it was about mid-way down between the 4th valve and the bottom of the main tuning...

    Welcome to the Forum, Ollie!

    As for bore size, .571 is about the smallest you will find with euphoniums. I think there is a Jupiter that has a bore size of .570, but that is a pretty...

    Excellent playing on both Czardas and The Swan. What is particularly nice about Herr Nickel's rendition of Czardas is that it was played at a speed where the listener could clearly hear the notes in...

    The trigger install looks really nice. The finished product looks very factory installed, not add-on at all. One of the nicer trigger systems I have seen!

    By the way, in case anyone has not...

    Rick - that is interesting about the Stenberg brothers. And the site itself is interesting. Can you imagine working at a company for 60-70 years?

    The receiver is just at two inches long. The lead pipe has external threads on it. The receiver on the inside of it has internal threads that...

    Indeed, Renold Schilke! 94 seems to be a good age. Not that he plays euphonium, but Doc Severinsen is 94 and still playing, giving classes, etc. What an inspiration! I was a smoker (dumb) for so...
