    I played a concert and a recording session last summer with Brandon Jones when he got his and it sounded wonderful. Unfortunately, the Q41 Shires brought with them to TUSABTEW sold almost instantly...

    understood! I’ve had some problems myself mostly because the weight of trombones. I wasn’t suggesting you add a trigger, just making an off-topic comment because I recognized some truth in your...

    yep, the G in the staff is my biggest intonation complaint with my E3. I'm pretty used to using third valve on that note with my baritone, but I still prefer using 1+2+half trigger.

    I believe what happened here is the lacquer developed pinholes which allowed air and perhaps other corrosive vapors underneath the lacquer to create these spots. You'd have to strip the lacquer off...

    mine is pretty plain. I'm not a fan of engraving. I ordered it with the tuning trigger and without the AGR. I got some fancy green color fake abalone inlays in the finger buttons. Other than that,...

    The baritone is still a conical instrument, it's just a different ratio of conical to cylindrical than euphonium, and doesn't get as big. It's a saxhorn.

    But here's the real muddying of the...

    It's also not unheard of to see British-style baritones being used as 3/4 size euphoniums for beginners, so there is some validity to your assumption.

    So, there's some confusion around the terms baritone and euphonium.

    In England there are two separate instruments, baritone and euphonium. Your Besson is a baritone. It fulfills a different role...

    Looks like a (full size) New Standard baritone. The serial number would put it somewhere in the early 1970s. This was their top model baritone at the time, until the introduction of the Sovereign in...

    most english-style baritones have 9" or larger bells, but that's irrelevant. Bach 6.5AL would be my first thought for such an instrument, or a Wick 6BS which is a little larger but still in the same...

    "yellow brass finish" vs. "gold brass finish" isn't really a thing. I mean, there are gold-tinted lacquers that are darker than clear lacquers, but what you really are talking about there is the a...

    Thanks, Dave. I swore I would never own another Besson/Buffet Crampon instrument after the awful customer service I received from them on the multiple 2052 and 2056 I used to own. The Jin Bao is...
