    I think that it would also be fair to mention that until quite recently, Besson was an English company. If you could buy a product that was produced domestically, had more than 150 years of...

    I was not trying to learn how to play the conch. I just wanted to see what I could make happen with my chops as they were. I thought I knew what to expect and how to make it happen as a baritone...

    Conch shell

    Not exactly an "other brass instrument" but I figured it was close enough. I just got back from a trip where I blew on a conch shell. I figured that the techniques I use as a brass player would...

    Awww... Poor baby has booboos. (laugh) Only half kidding. I saw the picture of the missing piece of the bottom bow guard and winced. I feel for the poor horn. I wonder how much it would cost to...

    Yes, she did upgrade her horn. What I was suggesting is that you talk to her about her experience with the 100. As someone who as spent time playing one, she could offer insight about whether it...

    You know, there is a forum member who regularly played on what I think was a Yamaha YEP100. I think that she is still active and was from Malaysia too. Her user user name is ChristianeSparkle. ...
  10. More opinions

    Personally, I thought that the Conn 20-I had the best sound. Whether it was tenor tuba or not, I can not say. Just that I liked the Conn sample the best.

    I agree that the Couesnon Bb Bass...

    Just wanted to check something with you Mp4G. When you say you are looking for a "baritone", do you mean that you are looking for a British style baritone, or an American style one? The American...

    I am impressed with the simplicity of design in this instrument. We tend to get all fussed about things like triggers and fancy valve caps, but this one is just three valves and their loops, plus a...

    It is always fun to hear pros rehearse (smile). But now what I would really like is to get Hiram's take of this same rehearsal, from "behind the mouthpiece" so to speak.

    It sounds like you are concentrating all your efforts on the valve piston itself. But that is not the only part affected by oiling your valves. Take a look in the valve casing and see if there is...

    I have never heard an actual answer to this one, but I am going to try a couple answers of my own. Five or more euphoniums (or any brass instrument) in one place is a "band" or maybe a "racket". ...

    Where to get sheet music?

    I think that I have decided to bite the bullet and subscribe to a sheet music service. Something that will download the notes onto paper for whatever tune is buzzing around in my head. Something to...

    Gotta love that face!

    I like to watch how a brass player's face (and body) moves while they play. I particularly enjoyed that this video spent so much time "watching" the soloist so that I could see all I wanted of that....
  19. BR140 Baritones are great!

    I will second this motion. You know that you at least "like" and can trust the Wessex brand of instruments, as evidenced by your experience with their euphoniums. Stick with that (smile).
