    I've got a Conn 24i that works as is, but could use some care. 4V in front with tuning mechanism for main slide, bell forward, removable bell, hard case. Takes a small shank trombone mouthpiece.

    That bit about the French C tuba is interesting. Do you have a recording of a skilled player showing the range? Also, can you explain how you use the 6 valve arrangement?

    Thanks for all the responses. Yeah, the Jim Self Jimbasso is exactly what I'm looking for. Low C and B are definite needs. So a 4 valve in F or 5 valve in Bb. But the more valves the weirder the...

    Bass Baritonium ???

    I'm trying to start a project. I want to create something between a baritone horn and a bass trombone. The need for this is that the physical requirements of the bass trombone are wearing on me, and...

    Yeah, that's some genre benders right there. They even worked in a Schagerl Wunderhorn or something like it.

    Every time I try something and then come back and play it later, I usually have a different impression the second time around. It might be because I play it up against other horns, or with other...

    You should try to use a 3D scanner to collect data on mouthpieces you like. If you don't have access to 3D scan, you can try taking measurements with a set of calipers. This will likely turn out...

    I'm an older return player as well. I had an accident where I nearly drowned in a freezing lake, which I feel damaged my lungs, so I've been fighting the diminished capacity thing as well. I'm mostly...

    I like these comparisons. To me, a trombone player, the difference was pretty clear. The first horn sounds clearer, and thus better. The second horn is very dark, which I imagine is good in some...

    I started on a rented King 605 trombone. I can still remember the new smell and my amazement at the case and how the thing went together.

    The loop looks like 2 things Dave has mentioned. 1st, it would collect water, but so would the main tuning slide. I doubt this was a design element, maybe just something that happened due to the...

    I'm an amateur trombonist (former pro) who doubles on euph and sometimes tuba. I read bass, tenor, alto and treble clef (non-transposing - transposing treble is just tenor - 2 flats). Clefs and...

    You've asked a very subjective question. It hits on a lot of trigger topics for euph players and the answer depends a lot on a number of things - how you feel about compensating systems, low notes,...

    Two things: I use an Olds compact valve trombone for travel. It fits right in my suitcase with the clothes around it. If you have a trombone Yamaha Silent Brass mute, that works great with it, stores...

    I'm a euph doubler from trombone, and the 2280 is the one that makes the most sense to me. Compensating systems don't buy you much unless you play below the staff a lot. 2280 is a very flexible...

    Silent Brass for Euph

    Has anyone used the Silent Brass for euph? I have one for tenor trombone (the newer small one, not the bowling-pin-looking thing) and it really works well. The euph model is soooo much more...

    Slide Hampton played a large tenor much or all of his career. I've known some bass players who can really swing, but it's more of a novelty than anything.

    One thing you might check out is a...

    My wife, it turns out, is tolerant because of my euphonium habit. When I was just collecting trombones, she was tolerant as long as I didn't use household money for it (and as long as I don't play...

    There's smart music https://www.smartmusic.com/pricing/#academic which is ~$40/year. I've heard good things about it, mostly from teachers.

    Musescore is $70/year, and has a lot of "stuff". I've...

    Not really directly related to your question, but the TubaPeter.com site has a lot of game and film music arranged for bass clef valve instruments. Might be entertaining while you're waiting for a...

    It's great to hear you play these side by side. I've typically been a fan of some of the larger sizes simply because of how they feel to play, really without regard for how they sound. I tend to...

    Maybe I should also mention that when I do take out the 1st valve comp loop, it comes out with a jerk and hits the 3rd valve circuit.

    I'm not consistent about emptying water. I do it infrequently enough to let the slide freeze. If I can get by without it that's what I do. I've done it just a few times since I've owned it, usually...

    Well, yes, it does have a loop that hangs down, and it is removable. And yes, it did have some water in it. I didn't notice it gurgling, though. I think this loop had been stuck until I had it worked...

    I've never or rarely (once or twice) had to dump anything that wasn't accessible via a water key in the 2 years I've owned my Festivo. I don't play it daily, and I usually play 30-50 minutes at a...
