    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.
  3. I'm not consistent about emptying water. I do it...

    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...

    Yeah, the Mighty Bright is the one to have. It's no fooling around. Bright enough to read music. Runs batteries or plugin. Pricy, but you don't have to worry about if its bright enough or not.

    Valve felts

    Sorry, bone playing valve noob here. I've got a Conn 24i with clanky valves. Recently bought it from an unknown past. I'm assuming that I can replace the felt or rubber pieces under the buttons and...

    I have 3:

    Festivo, 114g without caps - 90
    King 2280, 121g without caps - 92
    Conn 24i, 70g without caps - 56

    Only the first one is compensating, and the Conn is significantly...

    I have 3, well, 4 valve instruments. Valves are a double for me, so I don't need these to be top quality, just being "mostly" functional is good enough for what I do with them.

    Conn 24i It's kind...

    Thanks for all that. I've started practicing some of those valve effects, they're not easy.

    Sometimes a note will feel funny even though it doesn't sound bad. I have a horn that has a funny resonance on high F# that you can only feel from behind the bell. In front of the bell there is no...

    I always enjoyed it unless I was down low. It felt lik the spit valve was open, but just for a couple notes. I was aware that the blow between euph and bone could be a little disorienting, so at...

    Stuffy Festivo

    I complained here about my Festivo being stuffy maybe a few months ago. A few people kind of piled on and suggested I was just a silly trombone player, and that the compensating range is always...

    On trombone, we use trigger flat 3rd for fast passages where going back to 1st position is impractical. You'll have to push that note down to get it in tune, or if it's fast, just don't worry about...

    The super bone would be an interesting compromise. I've played 3rd in big band on 525 bore, and this is 500/525. Both the valves and slide are "kinda funky". The slide is short and positioned a bit...

    As a trombone player who plays some valves, I completely avoid valve trombones except the marching compact trombone (flugabone) because they can't glis, are largely out of tune, are stuffy to play,...

    I live where there aren't any great music stores as well. I've bought and sold a lot of used horns. I think it takes more than a week to really get to know an instrument. So I tend to buy used stuff,...

    Exercises prepare you for specific situations. Melodies prepare you more generally to be musical. You need both. I think anyone who works one side to the exclusion of the other is going to be lacking...

    Arbans is great for technical stuff, but I would choose Rochut 1 because melodies teach you more than exercises.

    I tried bass trombone mouthpieces on euphonium, and it worked, but it was rough. It seems like the difference is cup depth and probably the backbore. I don't have any experience with a "euphonium...

    Uhaul lamp boxes work well. Or you can tape together a couple shorter boxes. I sometimes wind up making my own box from assorted corrugated material around the house.

    King Silversonic 3b w/F is going to be worth about $1800 - $2000 depending on condition. These right now are kind of the pinnacle of non-custom small bore horns. It's very versatile and can do 75% of...
