    Keep in mind that Willson used to (a LONG time ago) use Bauerfeind valves. When Willson started making their own valve clusters they likely had to keep a lot of the same dimensions as the Bauerfeind...

    Shires had a large shank Q40 and Q41 at the Army Band's American Trombone Workshop this past week. I liked them both. I think I'd prefer the Q40 which I felt had a little more focus and easy response...

    I really like the 2950 and the 2960, but the players who are die-hard Willson people tend to prefer the characteristics that the 2900 has.

    1. The reason that British-style euphoniums and American and German-style tubas took off and started getting used in orchestras and bands around the world is that they turned out to be just plain...

    It doesn't surprise me that Willson is the same as Adams and Sterling since there is some shared heritage between Willson and Bauerfeind as well. I am surprised that the Hirsbrunner on the list is...

    It looks like the space between the pistons is more significant than the actual bore size.

    What's the center-to-center distance between the first and third valves on the Shires valve block? It looks really far apart. I notice on Bente Illevold's social media videos her third finger is not...

    No, I'm not aware of any instruments that have nickel plated slide tubes. Nickel plating is sometimes used on the cores of piston and rotary valves, but not on slide tubes.

    yep, the G in the staff is my biggest intonation complaint with my E3. I'm pretty used to using third valve on that note with my baritone, but I still prefer using 1+2+half trigger.

    I believe what happened here is the lacquer developed pinholes which allowed air and perhaps other corrosive vapors underneath the lacquer to create these spots. You'd have to strip the lacquer off...

    The baritone is still a conical instrument, it's just a different ratio of conical to cylindrical than euphonium, and doesn't get as big. It's a saxhorn.

    It's also not unheard of to see British-style baritones being used as 3/4 size euphoniums for beginners, so there is some validity to your assumption.
