  1. Sticky: FS: Very nice Besson Prestige 2051 in Silver

    This one is in beautiful shape from the photos shown. It is silver with gold trim and is shown with an HBC heavy 4th valve bottom cap. The case shown looks like a Bonna (or something very similar)....
  2. Sticky: FS: A Yamaha 321-S in FINE Condition - Great price!

    Here is the venerable 321 in silver (4 valves non-comp). Includes a hard case. All looks very nice, and this price is excellent for the horn (there is a make-offer button, but it is already priced to...

    I agree the sterling silver bell may not be for everyone, although it can be wonderful when used to its best advantage. An interesting alternative I have tried was an E3 in yellow brass of .70...
  4. Sticky: FS: Lovely Holton 4-Valve Front-Valve Straight Bell Euphonium

    This is the typical American style euphonium with the bell that goes to your left, but this one has a straight bell. It is a 4-valve non-compensating horn, of course. It comes with a case, which the...

    There are two easy paths to learn tuba after playing euphonium. The path I chose was an Eb tuba, which allows me to read bass clef music the way I read treble clef euphonium.

    The other path is a...

    My treble clef brain was part of the equation, of course. But also, the Eb tuba seems a better choice for solo and quintet work, which was my goal. If your doubling on tuba includes providing the...

    I'm using the Alliance DC mouthpieces and find them very comfortable. I use the DC4 now, which is the teeniest bit smaller than your Ultra. The DC3 is about the same amount larger than your Ultra....

    I'd lean toward the York, assuming it is a good sample. I've always liked the British sound. (My Adams gives me something like that...for a lot more money than this York.)

    Also, assuming you don't...

    FS: Conn 6H Valve Trombone from 1957

    This is one of the classic American valve trombones. Conns had a nice sound and good intonation and this is in nice shape. Includes a newer-model case. Starting bid is $895 (not sure I'd want to go a...
  10. FS: Old Valve Trombone IN C - 4 Valves - COUESNON

    A very rare instrument, that could be useful for some situations. Instead of the usual key of Bb, this is in C. It's also unusual in that it has 4 valves. Seller says the compression is good, and the...

    Feel free to post some photos if you are in the mood. It's always fun to see old horns!

    Sadly, the world we live in as musicians has a pretty large percentage of folks who will share copyright music freely. I've deleted numerous threads on Facebook where people are simply asking for a...

    FWIW, I suggest that the standard Mead springs are too stiff for this valve assembly. I find that the Mead Light springs are just right!

    That would be quite upsetting!

    In fairness, I'm sure there are many places where manufacturers have to make a decision: do it robustly and charge more, or make what seems like a reasonable choice...

    Did the Sovereign have a trigger? That in itself adds weight, and I've learned that it does not take much change from what you are used to for it to seem dramatic. (Of course, I'm a little over-aware...
  18. Sticky: FS: Yamaha 642S Euphonium - Good Price - UPDATED LINK

    The 642 (pre Neo) is a nice instrument that has many fans. This one is in very good shape for a very good price. I see a dent in the 1st valve tube that I would think about fixing (probably needs a...
  19. FS: Olds Studio 4-Valve Euphonium - REALLY GOOD BUY!

    If you are in the mood for an American-style euphonium with 4 valves, this is a great bargain! The condition looks very good. I think this was Olds' top model with the 2-tone bell. The curved bell is...
  20. FS: Conn 5-Valve Double-Bell in Lacquer from 1930 - BID

    Based on the photos, this one is in very nice shape. The listing says it is "seller refurbished" for whatever that means. The piston shown looks in very good shape. The horn has 2 curved bells. This...
  21. FS: 1975 Besson 4-Valve Compensating Euphonium in Silver

    This is a large-shank horn in bright silver, which was not standard in the USA (perhaps it was made for the British market). It has taken a few hits over the years, based on photos, but nothing I see...

    I'm pretty sure that is not a tuba. It almost sounds like a trombone! But at the time this was made it is nearly...
  24. FS (UPDATE): Conn 5-Valve Double-Bell Euphonium in Lacquer

    The seller just got back to me with a couple details. The SN is 276621, which puts the manufacture date at 1930. It's in very nice condition. No case is mentioned, but there is only one photo and no...
  25. Sticky: FS: Very Fine Buescher 5-Valve Double Bell Euphonium

    This horn is in great shape! It is an upright 3+2 configuration. I think the finish is satin silver with bright inside the bell, and it looks complete (needs to be polished). I don't see any denting...
