    I tried them for a while in one horn, either my Sterling or my Adams (my 2007 Sterling used the same valve set as Adams). I had to stretch them a bit for my taste. But that can be tricky to do...

    From what I know, you are right about the problems starting in the early 1990's. I have some British friends who showed me firsthand. I believe they were resolved once the horns began production in...

    I'll second that recommendation! The new breed of Chinese-made horns are getting very good, but the best examples of used horns from top makers would be a safer choice.

  5. Sticky: FS: Jupiter XO 1270S Euphonium - Wonderful Condition!

    This 4-valve compensating euphonium in silver plate has a $3k starting bid, about half the price of a new one. Condition looks nearly perfect and a hard case is included (which also looks great)....

  8. Sticky: FS: Besson New Standard 4-Valve Compensating Euphonium in Lacquer

    This looks like an outstanding value! The condition is good and price is only $1,599, which is unusually low for this model. Hard case included, but not in good condition according to seller. The...

    Sorry - no clue (I didn't ask). They have a little work to do yet with ergonomics.

    I'll do a review of the Wessex EP600, Eastman, and Shires euphoniums when I have a chance. I have tuning graphs for them, too. The EP600 is a horn to watch - very impressive prototype.

    Thanks for sharing your perspective, Martin!

    I'm going to show my age now. Back in the 1960's, when most middle-class homes had a "console stereo" or possibly a "console hi-fi", there was an...

    RE: sonic flexibility...

    This is confusing to talk about because there are two pieces to it:

    1) The horn's inherent sound characteristics, or tendencies. It is correct that different 5050...

    FWIW, I'll post a mini review of the Eastman and Q41 some time, probably next week.

    Regarding the Willson 2900 concept, I have an opinion, which I think I have stated on the forum and I know I...

    My opinion: the large shank can ultimately accept more air. We can get a bigger, darker sound.

    Welcome to the forum!

    I'm not aware of any compensating rotary valve tuba on the market today so I'm guessing you're is not.

    I'm modifying the suggestion slightly. The are some stairs leading downward that are near that door. To avoid the crowd, please go down those stairs to where the couches are. K? Thanks!

    Might I suggest meeting at the main entrance to Voxman (right on the corner and inside the door)? I'll try to make it myself if I get my body clock reset by then.

    The link on the page is a "mailto:" link, which would try to open your default email program. On my computer I never set up a default program, so it doesn't work.

    I'm not sure there is a per-event arrangement, except for my recital. It seemed like I had to twist arms to get that agreed to. It is $15, and you would go to the registration desk to pay and get a...
  22. FS: B&H Imperial 4-Valve Bright-Silver Euphonium

    This is from England, but if the price doesn't go too high it could be a very good buy, even if shipped to the USA. Very fine Imperial! Made in 1981 so it should have a large shank receiver, like...
