    Good idea! I'll start one in the Reference section, with a topic for solos and a topic for ensemble pieces.

    Excellent question! I'm not aware of one, though. For that matter, I don't think there is such a database for tuba mute pieces or even trumpet mute pieces, is there?

    Nice list! You reminded me that in my earlier days in the band we used some of those for marching, and I had them memorized (National Emblem, Semper Fidelis, Washington Post). And from playing them...

    Oh, boy - that one may keep me up tonight! I've been trying to figure out a logical reason for this, but I can't. No doubt it is real, and I have experienced similar things myself over the years. But...
  9. Sticky: FS: Conn Artist Model 3-Valve Curved Bell Euphonium

    This Conn is in rough-looking shape but seems mechanically sound. It might make a good 2nd (or 3rd) horn for someone, and would be great for marching because it is so light compared to a pro-level...

    All good advice! Also, I've noticed that brass bands create some very dramatic effects with sudden dynamic changes, so I would carefully observe dynamics (not bad advice for any playing).

    The same thought crossed mind! The one stumbling block for me is that the German Bessons don't sound like the British Bessons, the latter of which had an unbeatable sound IMO. But perhaps to come as...

    I had not noticed some things until Mike's comment above. First, in my testing anyway, the concert C in the 5th partial is well in tune, but the C# and D are sharp. Second, and a greater surprise,...

  18. Sticky: FS: Conn 4-Valve Upright Double-Bell Euphonium in Silver

    Unless I misread the serial number chart, this horn is from the late 1890's. It looks to be in terrific shape for a horn of that vintage. The valves are 3+1 (seller says they have good compression)....
