    Deal or No Deal?

    I have to wonder if an overhaul done in a class makes the thing better or worse than before. I'm not comfortable using student barbers or dentists; I'd have second thoughts about this. Can your...

    Poll: Sitting and Standing while practicing

    I agree. I play better when the horn is being held up, and worse when it rests on my leg. I don't always have the strength to hold it up for a long rehearsal, but I hold it up when the music needs...
  9. Need help with Marching Baritone recommendations

    I'm afraid I can't contribute to a brand recommendation. But I will question the whole endeavor. If Brynne is turning 16, she probably has only two marching seasons left in high school. There is no...

    Poll: Sitting and Standing while practicing

    Dave,

    Have you seen the Trombonestick? It has a curved end that rests on the left leg, like you describe. Maybe a euphonium version could be built.

    phrase marks and tongue

    As you can guess from my avatar, I am primarily a trombonist. I added euphonium a few years ago, but haven't had any formal training on it. So a lot of my approach is still trombone-centric.

    Valve Trombone

    Valve trombones come in all shapes and sizes. The basic idea is to build a valved instrument with the same sound qualities as a slide trombone. The biggest determining factor would be the proportion...

    New Mouthpiece

    That's hard to say. A lot of it depends on how committed to bass trombone you will be. By that, I mean how much practice time you will devote to it, outside of rehearsals and lessons. Be honest. In...

    New Mouthpiece

    Everyone is different, but using two mouthpieces probably won't mess you up. If you practice both instruments every day. Either a 2G or 1 1/2 G is fine. I'd go for 1 1/2, because you can buy the Faxx...

    New Mouthpiece

    A 1 1/2G is the de facto standard in bass trombone mouthpieces. Nowadays it is considered to be on the small side, but especially good for younger players. I think that it would be next to impossible...
  17. Stonelined Mutes by Humes & Berg Mfg. Co

    4th valve cover

    Most 3+1 compensating euphoniums have a swinging cover that can hold down the 4th valve. I don't know what it's for; I just assume it is there to protect the valve when not in use. But is it ever...

    3-valve Eb sousaphone

    One of the best things you can do is write out your own fingering chart. From playing Bb tuba, you know the valve sequence used to descend chromatically within a partial (i.e. 0, 2, 1, 12, 23, 13,...

    Benge 12C Mouthpiece or Equivalent
