    The horn I used is now on its way to Snorlax! It's been fun testing it, and I'll have one more video ready to upload in a day or two. It's just a continuation of our Liebesfreud session, where we...
  2. Sticky: FS: Really Interesting Antique Euphonium with Short-Action Valves - Rudall Carte

    This may be one of the first horns to ever use short-action valves according to the seller. Apparently it was made around 1920, before the short-action patent was issued in the U.S. The bore has a...

    I wish (truly) I could tell you!! At the last 2 ITECs I attended this horn was on my list to play-test. In one event the horn was sold before I got to it, and in the other I left suddenly for a...

    Thanks for the feedback, folks!

    One interesting thing I noticed yesterday and my practice. The high Bb (concert) on the Doubler is easier than on my Adams. It is in the "no brainer" category on...

    Thanks, Rick! On my Bessons and Sterlings I had the flipper type of lock. I would periodically have to check the screw for tightness. And at some point I started using a woodwind mouthpiece pad on...

    I realized after I finished that I didn't mention intonation in the review. In my mind that box was already checked because I had already put it in the intonation graphs. It's a confusing issue to...

    ACB Doubler - Review Video

    Here is the video I put together with my overall impressions of the DOUBLER. (I'm still hoping to do a video of a piece of music with piano, but venue availability is becoming tricky.)

    That's a good question, actually, and we DO get confusing in how we talk. I'm especially guilty because I can never remember what a C2 is vs a C3 for example.

    So in concert-pitch bass clef, this...

    You raise a good point, which I tried to address above (about releasing notes). But I decided that would make a good single-topic video, and here it is:

    A common problem with tonguing is that some folks try to use their tongue to start AND stop the note. Usually we should only start the note with our tongue. Think of a half note that starts with an...

    There is something very suspicious about that site. The listings seem scraped from other places and obviously it is not a music site. I would not go there.
