    I moved this to its own thread. I like thread titles to represent the content therein.

    For me, there is a fairly large difference between the two. BTW, I don't consider myself a baritone horn...

    Welcome to the forum!

    I think the 321 ships with a Yamaha 48, but that is pretty small. I might suggest the following. They are all OK for someone starting out, but they go from easier to harder...

    Take a look at this page. Lots of examples over time:

    Many early models followed the Saxhorn design, which...

    Part of Adams concept is that they are made from sheet metal, which enables the constant thickness. While it is true that most production horns today use hydraulic blowing to expand tubes into the...

    I have asked at a couple ITEC booths about thickness, but the sales folks did not know the answer. I have to guess Willson is around the .80 realm, though.

    Not sure I agree on price. The new price is $8200 from Brasswind. This one is 57% of the new price. (But making a lower offer is not usually a bad idea - you never know!)
  12. FS: Besson German 967 in Silver - Excellent Condition

    This is a great-looking horn! The case is included and also looks near perfect. Buy-it-now price is $4,699 and there IS a make-offer button. That's a very fair price, IMHO. (Many more photos in the...

    It's always hard to predict what the market will bear with a horn where the condition is way out of the mainstream, but I doubt he'll get 6k. If one really wanted a dandy horn of this era, I would...

    Trafalgar Hornpipe

    Here is a traditional hornpipe, such as you might hear performed in a pub. The whole arrangement includes a short divergence into "Locker's Hornpip" in the middle, but we took the optional cut to...
  15. Capuzzi - Allegro Moderato from Bass Concerto

    This is my arrangement of the first movement of Capuzzi's concerto. Movements 2 and 3 were arranged by Philip Catelinet as "Andante and Rondo." My arrangement supplies the missing first movement,...

    Sticky: FS: Besson Sovereign 967 in Lacquer

    Here's a nice 967 for those looking for a euphonium with a big sound. Condition looks very nice. See the seller's description below the photos. Starting bid is $3,500 and there is a Make-Offer...
  18. Sticky: FS: Lovely 1970's-ish Besson 4-Valve in Silver

    This is one of the nicest old Bessons you'll find, with additional touches like gold tuning slides and valve caps. Seller's description is below the photos. I think I saw this a little while ago for...

    Visually, I agree! I'm kicking myself for not finding time to test out the Wessex baritone at ITEC. I actually had my own 955 with me, so I could have compared easily enough. It was John Powell who...

    My 955 plays very nicely, and I suspect this one will be better. The Sovereign model offers a nicer sound (IMHO) compared to the New Standard. I just heard from a colleague that the Schiller and...

    I should also point out that you are using a compensating instrument. So on a trombone with F attachment, you know that a low Eb is played with the trigger plus a long 3rd / short 4th position....

    Here is a video of me playing a very similar horn. It had a heavy gold brass bell, which yours does as well. I was using a Wick 4BL for this recording:

  25. Sticky: FS: Besson Sovereign 955 3-Valve Compensating Baritone Horn

    This is a much newer model of the same baritone I play. It was made in Germany, so quality control should be very good. It is reportedly a very low-mileage horn in great shape, and it includes the...
