    Franz,

    I know what you mean about "wife permitting" from some of my friends, but my wife NEVER says "no" to me regarding buying a new horn. I am lucky. I have owned 2 Besson 2052 Prestige...

    The mouthpiece that comes standard with this horn is a Yamaha 48M small shank mouthpiece. Probably about $50 at places like Musician's Friend. Go with this one.

    Answering the questions at the end, I much prefer the 3+1 configuration. Mainly because it is easier for me (and most I suspect) to finger a 3+1 configuration than try to get the little pinky to...

    Which one did you get? They have a student model BR12 and a 3-valve compensating model BR140 (and a 4-valve compensating model BR144 which I have not heard much about). I sit next to a lady who...

    Very nice, David!! I liked all three of the pieces. The final one is pretty ripping. I especially enjoyed the flair and style of the piano player, who had a pretty good part in the Rossini piece. ...

    I know people who do deduct their mileage. A couple friends of mine come to mind, and they live a significant distance from the band they play in. If they are paid (which you can be in a non-profit...

    I got some pictures back from Wiseman. These are pictures described by Wiseman as "early workings" of the case. It does show the mouthpiece, and then I can see there is something in the lid to...

    So Brandon, can you point out where in the case the mouthpiece goes based on the picture I put in my post just above yours? I can't quite figure it out. Does the picture I posted look like yours? ...

    I'm still not quite getting where the mouthpiece goes exactly, even after Dominique from Wiseman said there was a place for it in the case.
