    The Wick 4AY is essentially a tenor shank Wick 4AL. It was specifically designed for the the 321. I find I can get a VERY nice full tone on a YEP-321 using the 4AY.

    Joe,

    I hesitate to offer too much advice. I don't want you to end up purchasing a gaggle of mouthpieces! Both Dave and I are fans of the 4AL, having a cumulative 60+ years on that mouthpiece,...

    I have a recording of the New England Brass Band playing a SA hymn. I converted it into a ring tone that I used for any calls from members of the NEBB.

    Joe,

    Be aware that the 4AL will not fit your Conn. Your Conn is a tenor shank and the 4AL is bass trombone shank.

    Joe,

    The mouthpiece that will work well on the Conn is VERY different than what works on the ACB. I used a 6.5AL on my Conn for years (back in the late 60s and early 70s). I continued to use the...

    Micah,

    I have one of the carbon fiber belly plates that Geneva used to use. These are great. The basic mounting points on the Besson are quite strong, including the Gold plated brass rod and the...

    Rick,

    I originally ordered a whole brass band set of Moistureguard covers from the UK. The euphonium covers were plenty big enough for my 11.8" (300mm) Sterling and my 12" Adams and would have fit...

    Please note that the Alliance number system and Wick numbering system do not coincide. At 26 mm, the Wick 4 (4AL, SM4, SM4U, Sm4X, SM4UX) is equivalent to the Alliance 3 (DC3, E3).

    While I have used Wrights Silver Cream to polish off the plaque build-up on valves, I always wash the valve throughly with soap and water afterwards. If in doubt, don't use it!

    Dave, at one point in the very recent past I had six Wick 4ALs. They fell into three categories of "feel". I have kept two of the six that are pretty close to each other.

    Dave,

    I had a DC3 for quite some time. To me, the rim actually felt just a bit smaller than the 4AL. After trying for some time, I came back to the 4AL.

    David,

    I am just a bit ambivalent here. Of course you sound wonderful on both mouthpieces and I enjoyed listening. The differences I heard were consistent across all of the snippets:

    I always liked the medium shank Besson/Boosey&Hawkes Imperials. Their intonation was better than the Sovereign. Once Besson quit making this horn, it created a market for the Willson 2900, first in...
