    Hmm, I responded to this yesterday, Sam, and it disappeared. I owned an M5050 for 3 years about 6 years ago. It was the best horn I ever owned, except for the Adams E3 that I now have. I played...

    Thanks for posting both of those, Jake. Your son is a budding star, I think. I remember a few years back when he was just starting out. I also got a big kick out of your entry in the Wessex...

    Definitely not too old. Assuming you are in reasonable health and most things are working!! I am involved in New Horizons Bands (many across the US and world), and there was a gentleman that...

    That is funny, Chrissie!!! I had to practice that valve flick a bit to get it right. Even a little more than just a tiny press will goof it up. But you will get it I am sure!!

    Good Job, Bill!! Keep at it. Making music never gets old or goes out of style!!

    Well, I'll be!!! I certainly don't admit to knowing everything there is to know about euphonium playing, but I have heard over the years most of what there is to know, even if I can't do all those...

    I think Micah has a floating lead pipe on his silver plated Prestige, I think he had to do something directly with Besson to make that happen. He can probably tell you for sure, maybe...

    Nice review, Mike. So, the 64 thousand dollar question, "You keeping it?"

    I hear you, Dean. Back in 1990 when stationed at the Pentagon during my final years in the Army (retired in 1992), my wife and I purchased a brand new Steinway Model B Grand. I think, no actually I...

    mmatisoff - I just looked up the Hercules Tuba/Euphonium Performer Stand. According to the specs it adjusts from 12.6 to 23.6 inches in height. I measured this distance (the maximum of 23.6) and...

    That is a good question. I heard some sketchy stuff in the video of the Lake City flugabone, too, and the fellow playing it admitted freely that there were some intonation issues (but states it is...

    There really is nothing quite like having a brand new instrument on the way to you. At 73 years old, I still get thrilled and anxious just like a little kid at Christmas. Some things never change! ...

    Thanks. I agree that the Blessing sounded best of the three. Man, that Blessing horn in the video took a beating! I just still to this day can't understand how horns get so beat up. Knowing just...

    Can you post the video URL? I would definitely like to take a look.

    Thanks,

    Thanks for posting. Andrae rocks that horn. I really enjoyed that. I'm with Dave in his post a while back about possibly yielding to temptation and getting one. I would opt for this horn over the...

    Those are some great ring tones, and actually some great pieces, all of them. Your Dad could really handle a Dixieland trombone!! I haven't ever heard the soundtrack from Planes, nice!!

    +1 what Doug said. Any time you switch a mouthpiece, it is going to take time, like weeks, maybe even months to adapt fully to it. The 4AL is an excellent mouthpiece for that size horn. There are...

    Another horn you might want to look at is the Wessex Sinfonico. At just under $3K, it is a very nice 4-valve compensating horn. It is a step up for sure from the horns in the under $2K category,...

    That sounds better, Evan. BTW, with these 4 valve compensating horns, you will probably want to play the low B natural (in the staff) using 2-4 rather than the way sharp 1-2-3. When traveling...

    Interesting findings, Evan. On your G3, if you play that 3rd valve instead of 1-2, I think it will bring it down. I believe Dave used 3rd valve for that note, but not sure. Also, in your text you...

    Happy that you got the Sinfonico, Evan!! Anxious to hear more about it and a video would be fun as well. That sure is a nice looking horn! I hope you find the intonation good on that horn.
