    Years ago, when Schilke used to charge the same amount for a custom mouthpiece as the stock variety, I had them make a 51D to fit a Doug Elliott XT rim and open the throat to .291 in. They actually...

    According to Terry Warburton, the DT mouthpiece is based on a Bach 3. Likewise, Brain Bowman would say that the 51D is a Bach 3 depth cup with a...

    This sounds like a possible soft tissue injury. Have you tried taking a week or so off from playing to see if it helps?

    The EUPH 101 and the XT 101 rim shapes are the same. What is different is the EUPH rim has a wider threaded portion to accommodate the wider EUPH cup. The cups depths are the same. For example, an LT...

    Regarding the DE 101 vs the 51D, the 51D rim is smaller. DE measured it as a 1.00 size vs his 1.01. The BB1 rim is nominally a 1.02, but it is much sharper than either the 51D or the DE 101.

    Absolutely nothing wrong with downsizing. Even Steven Mead has downsized. And plenty of superb players use a 51D. I believe Ben Pierce uses a 51D on a Miraphone 5050. The size of a mouthpiece is very...

    Not sure if this is relevant to your situation, but I have had the same Willson 2900 for the last 30 years and the first valve has also been clanky. There is nothing discernible wrong with it....

    I wonder how much of that is just perception vs moving more air. When you spend time playing with the practice mute, your tone is constrained by the mute. When you take it out, you sound better just...

    I have used a Wedge 103 Euph for about 8 months. It sounds similar to a Wick Ultra 4, which is not surprising, since it is based on that mouthpiece. The throat and backbore are very large, so it does...

    Take any of your other material and play it down 1 or 2 octaves. Trying to get things to sound musical 1 or 2 octaves down will help a lot.

    Hi Hiram,

    Is this new motuhepiece similar to a 51D? Ivan said it should be on his website mid March.

    Thanks John. I am not specifically looking for the Planets. That was just brought up in another response. I looked at the Ralph Sauer arrangement of Jupiter. Terrible euph part!

    Thanks Sara. But, I am looking for a brass ensemble piece. Not a wind band piece with good brass parts. Maybe my question wasn't clear.

    Hi Sara,

    Do you know the arranger? The version I found requires E flat trumpets.

    Thanks,

    What mouthpiece are you using now? The Carbonaria is extremely deep. Much deeper than most players use. There are people than love the feel and sound of stainless and others that don't....

    Also, make sure all of your slide are tight and that you are not over a hard surface. One time, when I blew the spit ball through the horn, my second valve slide shot out and landed on the floor. I...
