    I own a Mack brass Euphonium and a Wessex Dolce. The Wessex is definitely better, but the Mack is still a heck of a horn.

    I feel like the Wessex is worth it, but the Mack is a fine horn, too.

    Edison Pen, of course! I really like Bexley and Howard Levy is a great guy. But my favorite pens are all Edison Pens.

    Thanks to you for your help to him years ago when he first played the second movement! He still uses the notes from that Skype session on his sheet music.
