    I bought my Adams E3 (Sterling Silver bell, 0.6 gauge, trigger which wasn't really necessary, brushed brass, fully engraved bell) without ever seeing an Adams in person. All pretty much based on...

    Yep, you are right Dean!! I did update my location at least!! It would be a heck of a commute to keep playing in the groups I have listed. I will fix that shortly.

    I finally found a score that showed the euphonium part on measure 15. The bari sax has a similar situation. But, after reading through Adrian's post above, there is absolutely nothing I can add to...

    Hey Roger,

    I took a quick look at the piece. It seems to be in Bb concert. What part and what measure are you referring to? I am looking at a score and don't see what you are asking about. I...

    I hadn't heard of BlowDry Brass before this post. I looked it up. Seems that product has a bit different purpose. Spitballs for cleaning out gunk, and BlowDry Brass for "drying" your horn after...

    I use spitballs. I take the valves out occasionally and clean them and swab out the valve casings. I give my horn a complete disassembly and bath at least twice a year. And run as many things as I...

    I started on trumpet in 5th grade, then went to baritone/euphonium in junior high. I recently obtained a bugle (nice one) and a cornet. I bought a new John Packer cornet from DF Music, Inc. Out of...

    I checked them out, wow!! That is a really fun group. And the euph dude plays a bell front and tuba also. I got a little side-tracked and watched a bunch of their videos.
