    Hello all,

    I am no longer playing the English baritone in a brass band and so am selling my 3 valve Sterling baritone. This is a Sterling Virtuoso with a heavy bell, perfect for euphonium players...

    Depending on the chord, the Ab may want to be shaded lower in pitch while the G# may be a leading tone into the next phrase and shaded just a bit sharper?

    Nice piece. Try 3rd valve for the lower D and 1-2 for the upper. Changing valves might make the slur easier. 3rd valve might help with intonation on the lower D.

    I like the counter melody with...

    Bach does not make medium shank mouthpieces. You would indeed have to use a small shan k with a small to medium (euro) shank adapter.

    Medium shank is the correct size. I indicated in my response that I had to use an adapter (supplied originally with the horn) to use the 6 1/2AL and other small shank mouthpieces. Therefore, the 4AM...

    The 4AM is the correct mouthpiece for the medium shank Besson 181 (New Standard/Imperial). The Besson 10 mouthpiece is really a miserable excuse for a mouthpiece shaped object. Back in the day, I...

    Steve Vaughn,

    The trigger assembly looks a LOT like the older mechanism on my Sterling Virtuoso. Similar screw based tuning (which incidentally makes pulling the tuning slide out problematic).

    To all,

    I am NOT a fan of most 4 valve baritones. In the brass band context, you just won't use the 4th valve for range and using it for intonation or alternate fingerings is of marginal value...

    Hi all,

    I started instrumental music midway through the 4th grade in January 1960 on baritone horn at age 9. I think I was playing a 3 valve Bundy bell front at the time. I also played Reynolds...

    My early 2007 German built 2051 also had that gap. The change to the newer wrap didn't occur until 2011 or so (I think).

    Definitely not an HBS 479. This is functionally equivalent to Yamaha YEP-621 (non comp 3+1 valve).
