  1. Trumpet/Cornet Players and Their Instruments

    I just found this list of the various horns that well-known trumpet players have used in the careers. It is interesting to see that most of them switched brands a few times, and some of them a GREAT...
  2. Sticky: FS: Besson 4-Valve Compensating in Satin Silver

    This one has several small dents, but overall it looks very nice. I don't see any geometry problems and the finish is good. It comes with a hard case, although I would not use it for checked baggage....

    Adams Brushed Finish

    Here is one of the reasons I chose the brushed finish on my horn, as well as the sterling bell and the red/gold/yellow brass body. It can look so different in varying light. This is a screen capture...

    Tolerant Spouses

    It's a common theme with some brass players. Those who have a few horns are appreciative of a tolerant spouse who accepts the expense and storage ramifications. (John Morgan has often talked about...

    Sticky: FS: Demo Shires Q40S Euphonium

    I believe this is the more Besson-like of the 2 Shires models and it looks to be in excellent condition. There is a dandy case included as well, similar to a Bonna case. Price if $4,495.

    Left-Handed Instruments

    Here is a really nice example of a talented instrument guy turning a standard euphonium into one for a left-handed player. Beautiful work.

    Welcome to the forum!

    Usually dirt/grease/grease would affect more than just a single valve. But let's not rule it out yet. There could be gunk in the leadpipe (the pipe from the mouthpiece to the...

    I use slide grease on mine. Synthetic is probably best, but I have not really compared the 2 types. I think oil would not be good - it would disappear too soon!

  17. FS: Very Nice Reynolds Contempora 4-Valve with Trigger, Bell Front, Front Valves

    This horn has been overhauled and looks great. It has an adjustable bell. No case is mentioned. The trigger is like the Conn Connstellation, I believe, and this one would need a finger ring soldered...
  18. Sticky: FS: Besson 4-Valve Compensating in Satin Silver - Good Price!

    This listing could use a bit more detail, but it looks like a good buy on a horn in good condition. I think it was satin silver with bright accents, and it appears the silver is intact, if a bit...

    This is the classic Willson case, also used with Hirsbrunners sold in the USA. It is a wooden case with leatherette covering and a very well-padded interior. The design will fit almost any pro...

    Thanks for the extra info and the valve photo. I agree they look good (I downloaded the photo and blew it up so my tired eyes could see more detail).

  24. FS: Conn Double-Bell 5-Valve Euphonium 1912

    The horn looks to be in decent shape and comes with a hard case. The serial number stamp shown does not have a letter to indicate high or low pitch, so I THINK that means it is an A440 instrument....
