    I tried both the 12' and 11.5' models at ITEC. They were both good but I enjoyed the 11.5' version better, I do believe it had a heavier bell. Outside of the Prestige and Yamaha 842 it was one of the...

    Title says it all. Condition is not particularly important. Large shank.

    Newer Besson Prestiges are the "easiest" horns I've ever played, but I would rank the Yamaha and Adams horns very closely behind in that regard.

    Will the Shires have a better low range than the Willson? That's the one big thing that would set it apart for me.

    The Weber bassoon concerto is also great on euph - quite a bit tougher than the Mozart but still very playable. Roland Froscher recorded it with orchestra on his CD.

    It all depends on what your price range. If you can afford it, then I would certainly recommend the higher-end horns from Besson, Willson, Yamaha, Miraphone, and the like.

    Perhaps a theme-and-variations? There's the traditional ones like Carnival of Venice, Napoli, and Endearing Young Charms, but you could just as well do a modern one, such as Peter Graham's Brillante...

    I concur with everyone else. My main takeway from playing the Tornister euph was "wow, that was lots of fun to play."

    The Holy Well by Peter Graham and Summer Isles by Phillip Sparke, both excerpts taken from larger brass band works, are beautiful euphonium solos around the 4 minutes mark. They both have piano...

    It depends on what kinds of pieces you choose to play. A lot of the rep written specifically for tuba quartet is very technical and would be very difficult/near impossible on trombone.

    Based on what you just said above, then I would look towards some "mid-size" bass bone mouthpieces - Schilke 58 and Bach 1 1/2G being the prime examples.

    I started my bass trombone playing on a...

    As a euph-bass trombone doubler myself, I would find it pretty much impossible to play the same mouthpiece on both.

    If I were to use my Alliance DC2 on a bass trombone, I would not have any issues...

    Have you tried any or all of these mouthpieces? That's the only way to know how well they work for you.

    For what it's worth, more euphonium players today probably use a Schilke 51D more than any...
