    Great read. This puts my old 898xxxx Besson into perspective. It did, indeed, say "Made in England" on the horn.

    The Steve Mead travel mute on that site shows 0 dollars. It was also 0 dollars when I added it to cart. Someone should purchase it and see what happens.

    I agree with this. I never put my horn on the bell even when it’s in the case. I’m not fond of moldy felt pads!

    Thank you for clarifying, Doug! Do you know if the Conn Trombonium also used a Remington-medium shank? I remember trying the horn and a large shank mouthpiece did not fit and a small shank was...

    I see a lot of disagreements about American horns having medium shank receivers. I’m going off my memory of my last two “older” horns that I’ve tried. The Conn Connstellation and the Conn trombonium...

    A lot of the old American-style euphoniums have medium shank receivers. I would definitely go with the shank size that fits your horn! It can indeed affect your sound and is why the Adams horns have...

    Yes, I am in pretty good physical shape! I need to be more efficient and translate that into my euphonium playing. It might also be that I'm not confidently pushing for those high notes especially in...

    I have not spent significant time on the original 642 but from reading other reviews, the Neo is a significant upgrade. In my opinion, the Yamaha custom 842 plays and sounds very similar to my Besson...

    Hi Daruby, I believe I referred you to Hall many years ago for his Constellation. Is there a reason you're looking to get rid of it?
