    Ok, then how about Till There Was You from the Music Man? The crowd should know it, and the band might have a Music Man arrangement with this song in it. Just have the melody instruments lay out for...

    I agree with the 2 suggestions above. Either a used compensating instrument or the new Wessex will satisfy you better if you have been playing a Besson (especially a Sovereign).

    I THINK that horn is designed to be more fully conical, except for the draw-legs on the main tuning slide. There are no slides on the valve tubes as far as I can see. That was an intriguing idea to...

    Yeah, in this case I think the eBay offer is not good. I'd look at either of these for the free shipping. Comes out cheaper in the end.

    Good example. On trombone I would use 6th for Eb for a lip trill, maybe, but on trombone the goal is to find the shortest path. So a short 2nd for high G is logical, since you can place the slide...

    Trombone and euphonium seem like a natural double, but there are important differences.

    Many trombonists I've heard tend to soft-tongue during slurs as they would on trombone. Don't!

    Barry,

    Have you seen this one? It looks like a very fair price for the newer edition of the baritone I play, but I think it may be out of budget (nearly 3k):

    I would say "yes." Often in British brass bands, for example, lines are passed from one section to the next lower or higher section, and a very different tone upon handoff would lessen the effect....

    That's exciting news to me! I have come to believe that part of what I like about my classic 4AL is the shape of the body. Perhaps the lesser mass in the cup and throat area allow it to have the...

    My memory of the 967's I owned around those years is that the bell is 12" as you speculated. But the bore was about .580" on the main, .610" on the first compensating path and .630" on the 4th valve....
