    I love my Miraphone 5050 and don't think I'll ever change horns. Coming from a Yamaha 641 it took me a couple of months to get used to the Miraphone. The 641 slotted too well in my opinion so I had...

    The leather Cronkite bags are great! I used one for my Yamaha 641 and loved it. Really good protection. I would still be using it with my M5050 but sadly the Miraphone didn’t fit so sold it with the...

    I think the ERGObrass support may be a better solution than a strap for standing or marching. I had a section mate who used it for awhile but he found it cumbersome when playing sitting in the...

    Welcome to the forum!

    Ive not seen anyone use a strap to help hold up their horn. There are some who use a hand strap on their left hand to help hold their horn though. See this video where Dave...

    Franz, the NS looks great! The finger buttons have to be more comfortable than the original. Congrats.

    I met Steven Mead for the first time in 2002 at ITEC at Greensboro, NC. A late friend of mine, Bill (Gordon) Wells, and I shared a room at a hotel in Greensboro for that event. After checking in I...

    I think this is right. I see Glenn press it around 54 secs into the piece, and you can see a tablet on his music stand. He presses it again a few other times. What a great performance! Wow!

    Sailing with Whales - Rossano Galante

    Our band just started rehearsing this fairly new work by Rossano Galante, written in 2020 — commissioned work for the Hikarigaoka Girls' High School Wind Orchestra in Japan. It's excellent! We've...

    I just replied to your other thread in 'misc'. If you have a pair of hemostats or forceps, which are very narrow long nose pliers of sort, could you reach the broken off bursh?

    Hmm? How far into the lead pipe is the brush? Could you grab it with a pair of hemostats maybe?

    I think the Eb tuba would be useful in smaller ensembles. The main use I think is in British style brass bands where you normally have two Eb and two Bb tubas.

    Might be 50 years ago but still sounds good! The tone is a bit brighter with a .580 bore horn and a 6.5AL mpc but still good. Reel to reel tape recorders bring back some fond memories.

    There’s a vent hole in the bottom of each valve up through the middle to the top of the valve so air won’t be trapped and the valve can move freely. I had a partially blocked vent hole on the top of...

    That does look pretty bad. Unfortunately you can never return music but maybe if you complained to Carl Fischer they might send you a better copy. Might be worth a try.

    FWIW, the embedded video doesn't play for me but the link to YT works fine.

    Very nice, Dave! I always liked the march, "Semper Paratus" (always ready).
    ...one of the few marches that doesn't add a flat in the trio.
