    Not necessarily. There are some non-compensating 3+1 euphs on the market. Besson makes one; so does Yamaha (YEP-621 I think).

    Gee, I should think about something like doing squats! In my post I was referring to combining different playing techniques, like fingering and tonguing. But as I age I find that my "wind" is not...
  3. My Practice Philosophy Described in a Best-Selling Novel!

    Well, it's not an exact parallel, but the main point is pretty close to what I do every day. My routines vary from day to day, depending on what I'm preparing for and the condition of my chops that...

    Markmc611,

    One thing that probably enters into it for your comparison is that the 321 has a .570" bore, vs. more other horns today (in the 3+1 realm) that have .592. Even the older Bessons had a...

    Franz, I love it! Whether or not we can compare from brand to brand (to Gary's point) it is simply interesting.

    Can you help me understand what you mean by "the junction"? That seems to mean the...

    I moved this to its own thread. I like thread titles to represent the content therein.

    For me, there is a fairly large difference between the two. BTW, I don't consider myself a baritone horn...

    Welcome to the forum!

    I think the 321 ships with a Yamaha 48, but that is pretty small. I might suggest the following. They are all OK for someone starting out, but they go from easier to harder...

    Part of Adams concept is that they are made from sheet metal, which enables the constant thickness. While it is true that most production horns today use hydraulic blowing to expand tubes into the...

    I have asked at a couple ITEC booths about thickness, but the sales folks did not know the answer. I have to guess Willson is around the .80 realm, though.

    Not sure I agree on price. The new price is $8200 from Brasswind. This one is 57% of the new price. (But making a lower offer is not usually a bad idea - you never know!)
  17. FS: Besson German 967 in Silver - Excellent Condition

    This is a great-looking horn! The case is included and also looks near perfect. Buy-it-now price is $4,699 and there IS a make-offer button. That's a very fair price, IMHO. (Many more photos in the...

    It's always hard to predict what the market will bear with a horn where the condition is way out of the mainstream, but I doubt he'll get 6k. If one really wanted a dandy horn of this era, I would...

    Trafalgar Hornpipe

    Here is a traditional hornpipe, such as you might hear performed in a pub. The whole arrangement includes a short divergence into "Locker's Hornpip" in the middle, but we took the optional cut to...

    Visually, I agree! I'm kicking myself for not finding time to test out the Wessex baritone at ITEC. I actually had my own 955 with me, so I could have compared easily enough. It was John Powell who...
