    All that work to track down and fix errors, and transpose parts, why not just buy the Fennell edition?

    I'm not aware of one, but the issue I have with Dave's euph chart is I believe he uses the most in tune alternate fingering for each note (although I can't find the reference on this, can someone...

    It really depends on the band. I know there are probably some community-level brass bands that would just be happy to have the part covered. But for any serious band that competes it would not be...

    In the British brass band sense, I like to describe the difference between baritone and euphonium as a function of the vowel sound from the instrument. Euphonium is an "ohhhh" sound and baritone is...

    Add my vote for the Howard Snell over the Bill Himes Elsa's Procession. Not even close.

    I actually like really hearing it on F tuba, it adds a clumsiness and a big sound that compliments the music well. As a euphonium player who wants to play it again myself I will never admit to having...

    I hate the 956 and the york 3056 that was made with the 956 tooling. Ergonomic mess, weird little loop in the 4th valve tuning slide that's a huge pain to mess with, abysmal intonation, and they just...

    The problem I always have with the first valve is mineral scale from my saliva. It won't come off with normal cleaning and it tends to make valve oil dry up really quickly. You could have a...

    I'd say it's probably 1870s. Nickel silver is desirable and Hall and Quimby were a good maker. Valve trombones aren't all that desirable and it's almost certainly high pitch. I'd put the value...

    I doubt it's patentable as removable valves have been made for brass instruments since the 19th century. Nevertheless, the Stauffer/Hornguys valve is just a copy of what yamaha used to make. I...

    I don't know for sure, but it has been a trend in European orchestras to play at A=442 and sometimes higher for the past ten years or so, so it makes sense.

    I like the BR140 a lot! A couple of minor intonation issues, but no worse than the besson, which is the benchmark.

    I do not like the alliance baritone mouthpieces. Too deep -- baritone mouthpieces...

    I find baritone to be quite a bit more difficult to play than euphonium. The idea about the baritone sound is it's a different vowel sound than euphonium. Whereas euphonium is a big OHHH baritone is...

    I'll definitely do V+flat3 on trombone for B-flat as well for added resistance if I need to be really soft and smooth. Depends on the valve. Works really well on a rotor. Less so on a thayer. 2nd...

    you'd also need the top valve cap, stem, button, spring, felts, and valve guide. Probably somewhere in the neighborhood of an extra $100 per valve.

    My guess, knowing that Willson parts are generally on the high end of the spectrum, is that pistons 1-3 would be somewhere around $500 each. That's just a guess but I would bet I'm not too far off....

    the wessex superbone is not a bad idea! you could always have the valves to fall back on, and the bore and bell is not out of the realm of appropriate for 3rd seat in a big band. The original Holton...

    Hmm... the good news is it looks like a 2900, which is perhaps the most popular euphonium around, at least in the US. The bad news is it looks like the pistons are missing, which would be extremely...

    well, for big band use a small-bore valve trombone would be OK. I think the Jupiter is .500 and the Yamaha is .500 and those are both decent. The King and Bach are both smaller because they use...
