    I've been doing the Matteson method for a while now. Been able to reach the high Bb (Bb4?) a lot easier now. Trying to reach C5, but it's a whole different ballgame. My biggest issue is still...

    Congratulations on the purchase! Hope it will serve your son well for a long time!

    Perhaps you did get lucky to find an instrument with very decent intonation! I kinda still wish I went for the...

    Thank you both for the inputs! I haven't process through everything that was said yet (it's working hours over here right now). But yes, I was referring to the 148 Blue Bells of Scotland.

    And I...
  4. Breathing & Keeping to Strict Metronome Tempo

    I've been practicing Arban's with a metronome lately and something that has been kind of bugging me.

    Been playing with two of the variations in the Art of Phrasing section: Blue Bells of Scotland...

    As Mr. Werden said, it seems to depend on context quite a bit. I've found something similar with my horn too, I've been using 4th on those 2 notes, and 3 for the G on the staff. In the past month,...

    Thank you so much for the recordings! What a treat to listen to all 3 of the instruments in action!

    Besson Sovereigns that don't need trigger? Now that's a very interesting thing I've read. This is admittedly the first time I've heard about a Besson not needing trigger

    That makes sense I guess, Yamaha and stencils based on them would work with the Yamaha springs.

    Guess I will have to stick with longer springs.

    Great write up! Been hoping to see what people would say comparing the K&G with other well know brands. I have to say the whole physics of the mouthpiece is rather fascinating to me, how the slight...

    Thank you, sir! Seems like they are the same! How odd. Heard how people like using Yammy springs on compensating horns but they just feel too light on mine.

    Is it possible for anyone to take a measurement of their Yamaha springs?

    I was told by the technician in my country that there's only 1 Yamaha spring for both compensating and non compensating...

    Yes, they generally do allow people to test out mouthpieces. I think many music stores have demo mouthpieces too, but I may be wrong. I was able to test some mouthpieces when I visited one some time...

    Yeah, the EP600 seems interesting. Definitely will be paying attention to it.


    On my JP274, I tune each individual slides and have the 1st and 3rd slides a little out. Though I don't think I have...

    Seems like you have a good idea of which to go for, especially the "This was the ONLY instrument we tested where our son was grinning "ear-to-ear" within the first 5 minutes of playing."

    The 374...

    The first thing that came to mind when I saw the video was "Hey, it looks like the JP274 I own". Glad I wasn't the only one that noticed it

    I've read that people seem to think that Wessex is closer to the Yamaha while the JP to Besson. It can be see based on their valve caps too, I think? I'm unsure.
  19. Nice write up of your experience with the horn....

    Nice write up of your experience with the horn. Yes, the valves will work quieter and better after a period of breaking in and working it out.

    I believe you will have a similar experience with the...

    Yes, unfortunately she's in the UK, so you won't be able to test it out. Shipping wise, she quoted me an acceptable shipping rate to South East Asia, so maybe it isn't too bad to the US? I am not...

    I totally understand that feeling! After I got to test out my band mate's Besson Sovereign and Sterling Virtuoso, I honestly been having persistent thoughts of upgrading to a pro brand!

    Is there a good pedagogical reason for professors to "force" a student to get a particular brand or else they'd be denied lesson? Or is it just purely because the prof. may be an artist for a brand...

    That sounds like a productive visit to Ash's! Too bad there weren't other Euph for you to test out though!

    I don't think I am able to give a comparison between the 3, as I just don't have enough...
