    I was not crazy about the delay, but I didn't mind the message. People are not inherently patient (although I'm getting a LITTLE better as I get older). And it's nice to know why the delay exists. I...

    Yeah, I think the floating leadpipe was added in the 1990's or early 2000's. In the earliest examples I tried (I believe I borrowed Steven Mead's horn at an Army conference) seemed to have better...

    My comment about playing low on the baritone had to do with you mentioning you might play bass trombone parts on it. The 4-valve baritone will be pretty stuffy down in that range and won't have the...

    Not sure what to say! Baritone is NOT going to work well for bass trombone parts. Otherwise it depends on where you'll be playing and on the sound you want.
