    I've never played any such beast. My weapons of choice tend to run the low end of three digits. I do, however, have a suggestion. Try some earmuffs or an ear plug and cover/protect the ear closest...

    Snagged another one on my quest to acquire one of everything. It's an absolute gem.

    Never played the Maly, but the ergonomics are the same as a any other rotary. The only difference is the flipped bell curve, and the fact it's mega compact.

    Use your left hand to hold the bell...

    I can't imagine downsizing to a 51D. I sorta kinda downsized from a 6.5AL to a Schilke 44E4. Haven't had a reason to look back. I get everything I want from a 24mm (or smaller) rim and I only have...

    No F slide. No mouthpiece. Costs more than brand new Chinesium.

    Apologies in advance for my not being a legit musician, but I made a video trying to see if I can detect any sort of odd behavior with the short-action valve. I didn't notice anything, but it's...

    I don't notice anything out of the ordinary besides the valves just being really fast. The valves on my example are a bit worn as should be expected from a immediately post-war horn, but I don't...

    I remember measuring a bunch of my horns to see how they compared. I don't have the numbers anymore, but that's alright.

    Long story short, the only thing that can compete with the old Conn...

    This thing has been on ebay for a long time. If someone is going to play it, they'd better buy it now. Coronavirus is about to make me rich, and I'd love to finally put a real American Baritone and...

    I love me some alto instruments. There are endless variants and I own entirely too many of them. I'll tell you right now, there's no such thing as a perfect alto instrument. Every single one of...

    That was beautiful. I wish that my ventures in bored at home recordings were so fruitful.

    As far as mouthpieces, I'm not sure how we arrived at "modern" sizes. I guess when people starting...

    I'll say this. There are mouthpieces that sort of fit that description. You are absolutely going to struggle with range and intonation going this route. I have tried to play my big Alto with an...

    Tenor Sousaphone doing what it does (National Emblem)

    I am very bored. I decided to do what I do best and record myself clamming and desecrating another great piece of music.

    This is a pretty reasonable expectation of what the Tenor Sousaphone from...

    Oh. You want Eb Alto, not Eb Bass. Yeah, that's a thing.

    I have a really old Eb Bass with a 12.25" bell and .604" bore...so it's a similar idea. Maybe a little bigger than what you're thinking, but close enough. It can be played as a Euphonium with a...

    It's just misaligned. Just slip some valve oil down the fitting and push it (CAREFULLY) back into alignment. Don't try to pull it out and further until it's straight.

    Yes. Most instruments have a smooth transition from the receiver to the leadpipe. If you use a mouthpiece with a smaller shank than what the horn is designed for, you get a negative gap. For...

    Yeah, that's significant. I suggest trying the Bach 381 adapter. It should fix the issue. As a test, try to shim it with some paper. Just a single layer of paper should increase the shank by...
