    Well, I've owned a Miraphone 5050 and an Adams E2. I was quite happy with the 5050, playing it for a year or so in both wind and brass bands. I had to quit because arthritis in my hands made playing...

    It sounds like a double buzz. I had one during a period when I was playing a great deal and my embouchure needed more rest than I was giving it. It cleared up when I started putting in rest days when...

    Just a quick note on the Sonic. It's lighter but not smaller in any way, and of course un-compensated.

    And the Yamaha 842 (compensated) is a little more friendly for smaller hands and reach, but...

    "It depends on the horn. The Adams Sonic is uncompensated and is based on the Adams E1. I haven't had a chance to try one yet, but I suspect it would have the same good intonation. I have never...

    If I lived in Australia, I probably wouldn't buy one sight unseen--the cost is too great. They're really fine euphoniums, and I've mostly played Adams over the last 10 years. I've found the sterling...

    Another issue is that the bass trombone is a difficult instrument to simply sound good on. It just doesn't resonate easily like a tuba or euphonium.

    An F tuba might be worth considering as well.

    Because you find the BB1 mostly works for you and the Alliance and Wicks not so well, I would try the Schilke 51D.

    I played a 5050 for a while. When I think of that euphonium, I think of power and projection greater than any other horn I have ever played. Ultimately, the ergonomics of it just didn't work for me...

    Do we have any independent verification of this? That's a lot of money for a used horn whose provenance is claimed only by the seller.

    I've owned and played a 5050, a Prestige, and multiple Adams euphs. I think, at an amateur level, it's largely a matter of taste and feel, what feels best to you and which sound works best for you. A...

    Many thanks for the link, Rick!

    Sotto Voce is wonderful, and Demondrae has a euphonium sound which is unique, evocative and always a pleasure to hear.

    I liked the Q40 better. There was a little more bloom and complexity in the sound, especially when the melody shifts up an octave towards the end of each sample.

    Nice playing too!

    Thanks to Adams for putting these three videos on YouTube! Of course they're marketing pieces, but mostly they're just wonderful performances by Mauro Martins. You have to get past a bit of talk, but...
