    First, check to make sure somehow you didn't swap your mouthpiece with another one that looks similar (i've done it!)

    Next, check for leaks, especially at the spit valves. Those can cause issues...

    I think, for a full Refurbish treatment, there really is a certain level it has to have reached, as well as some connection you may have with the horn.

    If the cost of getting something you just...

    Thanks so much! That definitely does make sense. I'm going to assume that the "Gold Brass" is 85/15 alloy, though it could be 90/10.

    The whole red brass, gold brass, rose brass confusion is...

    My Perantucci Sterling is also stamped 1065HGS. Serial number 753534. It is fully silver plated, no gold whatsoever. It's from before they started using the "Virtuoso" name I believe.

    Either way,...

  6. Picked up an Eb 1952 Boosey & Hawkes Imperial

    I figured I'd cross post this from Tube net, as it's a really nice horn with a great history. I saw this tuba when it got listed on the Dillon Music website, but it didn't really have any information...

    I recently acquired a 15" bell Boosey & Hawkes Eb Tuba from 1952, formerly owned by a Euphonium Player. I'll try to post some thoughts once I get the hang of it in comparison to my BBb Yamaha.

    Back in the old days maybe, but not for modern instruments. You'll also find people who say the best mouthpieces "pop" an octave. Basically if you tap your finger across the end of the shank, and...

    Are you buying the Sinfonico new? If you are in that price range, you are in the price range of used pro level euphoniums by Besson, Boosey & Hawkes, and others. I think Dillon Music has a B&H...

    Yes. So post some pictures and most likely in a few days you'll know exactly what it is, and also how to bring it back into "playing condition" after sitting around for quite some time.

    The Trigger system requires different tolerances and precise alignment on the main tuning slide. It's a lot looser so it slides easily, which means you can't just install the trigger on the tuning...

    YIKES. "Send me the dots mate"... uhh no.

    The only thing I can think of is that maybe it's very hard to get those pieces in the UK? Looks like you can get the Fantasia by Bulla, but it's listed...

    IMHO, you should not be using the same mouthpiece with a Bass Trombone and a Euphonium. They are two very different instruments and sound concepts.

    I'm in agreement. Are you asking any type of question? Shanks taper, so in some ways the starting and ending size is immaterial. Some specifically design their mouthpieces to have the throat closer...

    That's definitely seen some action, for sure. Not sure if it really needs a full restoration. Maybe just removing the leadpipe to plate, and also pulling off the bottom bow to get all those dents...

    I definitely do NOT recommend using leather for a mouthpiece pouch, and am amazed that denis wick is making one. The chemicals used to tan leather react quite readily with a lot of metals. I use...

    Yeah, that price is kinda crazy, even with the gold trim and heavy valve cap. I guess they must have searched online and priced it once they knew what it really was?

    Since it's an electro chemical process, it should be able to do a whole horn, as long as you include enough aluminum. The water also needs to be HOT, or else the reaction is slow to non existent,...
