    I was just thinking about this band again, 9.5 years after I posted this (!!). I found this really nice youtube video of one of their tunes. I thought I would share. This link will bring you right to...

    Meinlschmidt is one of the top makers of rotary valves and is in the Munich suburbs. They used to recommend Hetman oils for use with their valves, and these oils seem to use the same grading...

    I have a Wyvern CC tuba for which the quality has generally been excellent. It did have an issue where it looked like the bracing on the main tuning slide had been mangled by a pair of pliers before...

    I have a E3 custom with yellow brass .60mm (I don't really care for the way articulations sound with the sterling silver) and no AGR and a tuning trigger. I was a 51D player from way back but I...

    I would also consider perhaps getting a linkage made to be able to use the fourth valve with the left hand. It's an option on some of the rotary instruments, although it may be considerably less...

    I would look for a Miraphone 53 used, perhaps set up a saved search on German eBay. Wessex makes some great instruments but IMO the ovalform baritone is not one of their best.

    I once sent him an email asking if he knew where I could get felts and springs for my Besson Prestige baritone since he worked closely with Besson in developing that instrument and is known to have a...

    International was the student line in the 1980s and 1990s, and again now, I think. Less nickel trim, non-compensating models, perhaps simpler bell construction.

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

    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...

    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 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...
