    I asked Martin about this once, and apparently the process/design would be extremely difficult and expensive for compensating valves. Something to do with the fact that there's very little material...

    Any idea why that is, Dave? More difficult to manufacture?

    My particular E1 was already made with the SS leadpipe, and honestly I've never had a horn I enjoy playing more. Now, whether or not the...

    Gonna bump this one more time (hopefully that's ok Dave!) since it's been a few months. A great horn is just sitting here not being played!

  5. Valve clearance/compression/"tightness"?

    So, over the past year and a half or so, I've owned three different euphoniums - from Willson, to Geneva, to finally settling on the Adams E1 I fell in love with at ITEC last summer. All three have...

    Since the website calls it the "Mack" ZO euphonium... perhaps it's Mack's answer to the Wessex Sinfonico/JP Sterling quality/price point? I don't really know anything about Mack, but that certainly...

    I have to roll my eyes at that sentiment just a bit. I get that they're speaking specifically about the market, but it's all perceived value. IMHO it's a better doubler's (or jazz) horn than a...

    IIRC Gail Robertson plays on a 2950. It's a great horn with a big sound. At the top-tier level of euphoniums it's all about personal preference. Willson wouldn't still make the 2950 if there weren't...

    That's a very well said description, James. After getting the opportunity to toot around on an E3 a bit yesterday next to my E1, I can safely confirm that while the E3 is a great horn, the E1 is...

    As for 4th valve issues, I always just use my left index finger on non-comp horns too. It just feels better than using my right pinky, even if it looks weird.
