    I agree with Rick, that it is just tarnish. I have used Hagerty silver polish with tarnish preventative to clean and protect mouthpieces. I ASSUME it is safe for mouthpieces because it is...
  2. Staying Ready for Band/Ensembles During Dry Spells

    I have put together some thoughts on staying in shape for band during COVID shutdowns and other periods when we don't have regular band rehearsals. For me, anyway, 2020 is just one of many dry spells...

    I hadn't heard that before, but he certainly was considered a top player so it is not hard to believe.

    George Swift - La Capricciossa

    This is a very old recording, but a real eye opener! I had no idea people played like this in 1938:

    Floral Dance

    I'm stretching the category a bit here. When I saw the movie "Brassed Off" I heard some great music played in actuality by Grimethorpe Colliery Band. One I really liked was "Floral Dance." Most...

    I actually purchased lacquer polish from a local music store. It works nicely, but I can't see that it is doing anything Pledge doesn't, and of course it costs more.
  9. Victor Saywell - Twas a Very Happy Day

    This is a Salvation Army solo, which I have played in recital a couple times. It's a fun romp! This is an old recording, and is part of my "Historic Euphonium" playlist.

    It MIGHT be possible to special order different size receivers from Adams. The receiver is already removeable so they would have to produce them with different inside tapers. But they would not be a...

    Fred Dart: Jenos Takacs Sonata Op. 59

    This is a piece you don't hear much! But fortunately Mr. Dart preserved it for us.

  12. FS: Besson New Standard Euphonium for Great Price

    This is a 3+1 compensating euphonium with a medium shank. Condition looks good, and note that the seller says valve compression is outstanding. It appears to be silver plated. No hard case, but it...

    Would this one fit the bill? The price seems pretty attractive, but this is not my field:

  15. Joplin: Euphonium Sounds - A Music Lesson within a Rag!

    This is one of my early arrangements, which I jumped on as soon as I saw the title! It is somewhat challenging technically, but not too bad. The music lesson hidden within is that the first few notes...
  16. Tip to Get More from Each Practice Session

    Here is a snip from my practice of "Spinning Song" by Mendelssohn. A real finger-twister! (And it's my own fault - I arranged it.) I suggest a way to get "free" practice time when you are working on...
  17. David Moore - Invincible - with Grimethorpe

    At some point I knew the name of the composer of this but have forgotten. Anyway, it's a nice solo. Not as flashy as some, but in the hands of a player like David it comes off just right. He seems to...

    Certainly both models are good, pro horns, but they are quite different. In my memory the 842 is also a responsive horn, so I don't know if the Virtuoso has an advantage there. But not all of us use...

    BTW, I only noticed how irritating the metronome was as I was editing it! When using it I often just let it run if I get up to look for music or something, so I guess I have learned...

    He was my first British euphonium hero. His recording of La Belle Americaine was so good it was almost depressing, because I could not sound as "sprightly" as he did!
