    Coming right up. Give me a little bit to get it done. I will post the K&G vs Warburton in my original post and here, too.

    Triple Tonguing and Rapid Slurring

    I try to find interesting ways to practice, ways that keep me engaged and improving on various facets of my playing. I got fairly good at double and triple tonguing early on in my euphonium playing,...
  3. Wick 4AL - Demondrae Warburton - K&G 3.5D Comparisons - Videos

    Okay, Dave started this so I got motivated to compare a couple more mouthpieces. My two videos compare the Wick 4AL with the Warburton Demondrae Thurman Signature mouthpiece and the Wick 4AL with...

    I, too, learned how to triple tongue using tu-tu-ku as the syllables. I have been able to get pretty fast with this. I agree with Dave on the usefulness of tu-ku-tu with arpeggios like he...

    Gee Whiz!! Now I am just a wee bit interested in something I thought I would never be interested in. Maybe I will try one of these things. Although the aesthetics won't be particularly great as I...

    I am one of those folks who started on trumpet and treble clef. I learned bass clef in high school and eventually became fluent at it (no transposing in the brain). I then took on tenor clef, which...

    I use the Yamaha trombone slide cream (when I remember). Works good on my Adams with trigger. Slide-o-mix (trombone product) is another possibility. Some people just use oil, some use a very light...

    I didn't particularly like the OEM mouthpiece that came with my Wessex Dolce a few years ago, both how it played and how it looked. I can't remember the model number, and I don't have it any longer...

    This is quite useful. Thanks for doing this Dave. I have the 4AL along with the K&G 3.5 and the Demondrae Warburton that I may do the same thing on. The 3AL I believe is the biggest you compared. ...

    That, my friend, gives new meaning to the term "valve bounce"! That is valve bounce followed by re-bounce followed by bounce-again. Something is very, very off with that. I can only imagine a...

    This is a particularly good point, that is, the first part about the weather being warm. My Adams E3 verges on being a "flat horn". I have my main tuning slide out just a wee bit. I do have to...

    The tuning "trigger" on the Geneva is really interesting. It looks sort of like the typical 4th side valve on a 3+1 horn instead of the flat trigger placed in the third valve wrap. I am just trying...

    Probably a Wessex Sinfonico. I bought a Wessex Dolce a few years ago and it was a great horn for just over $1,200 at the time. The Sinfonico is more hand made, has some nice features, and from...

    I like Rick's approach with adding a couple or three washers. I am rusty on Physics and Hooke's Law regarding springs, but once you stretch out a spring to the point of deforming it (which you have...

    My question is if the heavy cap does something useful screwed onto the 4th valve, why aren't euphoniums made/sold with this bit of engineering/manufacturing already in place? I suppose cost could be...
