    Looks interesting. Seller notes that it was converted down from high pitch.

    The classic Bessons are unique and were exceptional at what the did. They have a very focused, rich sound with great projection, and are quite sweet to play. The 6th partial is pretty sharp, and I...
  3. Sticky: FS: Classic Besson 4-Valve Compensating in Silver - 1970-ish Vintage

    This is a nice example of the legendary Bessons, made around 1970, so it would have the medium shank receiver. (The long description in the listing has a big error about the date range, but the...

    I don't know for sure, but I have a guess for you. First, when the Connstellation first came out Conn made kind-of a big deal about the larger receiver for the Connstellation, and it was to...
  5. FS: Silver Yamaha 321 for a Very Good Price

    Finally I see a 321 that is priced well, given the fact you can get new compensating Wesses/ACB horns for way under $2k. Some people would still like the inline 4 approach and the non-compensating...

    I usually buy mine from this source:

    Music Notes

    They have some nice charts, better than I find elsewhere, although they are pretty straight. Many of the pieces I've recorded for YouTube are...

    Too old? Nah. You already have music experience and (it sounds like) music in your heart!

    Roughly half the challenge is knowing what you want to come out the other end. There are some mechanics to...

    Gee, I can't believe someone didn't snap it up with the buy-it-now deal!

    I'll modify the original post accordingly. Thanks!

    Thanks, Rick! I forgot to mention...the Faure recording is from this week, and it is the first "real" recording I've done with the Alliance DC3 mouthpiece. (My next step is to test the DC4 after I...

    Lip Slurs - Supplemental

    Here is another place to use one of the lip slur helpers I mentioned in the previous post - the half-valve flip. The first video talks about it, and in the 2nd video you can see it in action at 2:27!...

    The slides may be pulled to show their condition (and the fact that they are not frozen). Many sellers do that.

    This is a Bb euphonium.

    I know Steven Mead is talking about downsizing lately. When I first got to know him, while we were both Sterling artists, he was using a 2AL sometimes and a 3AL the rest of the time. Recently he has...

    Before I switched to Adams euphoniums I played a Sterling Virtuoso. The Sterling had a floating leadpipe. The Adams has a soldered leadpipe. Conventional wisdom says that a floating pipe frees the...

    I didn't think that. My wording was just careful so I didn't sound like I was accusing Besson of messing with the USA market.

    I personally believe that to be true and came to that conclusion while I was a Besson artist. It's not a dark plot or anything, but is a matter of circumstance.

    When I have been near a shoe outlet...
  19. Sticky: FS: LOOK SOON - 3-Valve Compensating Besson Euphonium - RH Valves - Curved Bell

    This 1948 horn has a decent collection of small dents, but I didn't notice any major structural issues from the photos. It has a removeable curved bell, but is otherwise configured like the standard...
  20. FS: NIce Conn 4-Valve Upright Bell Front-Valve 5i Euphonium

    Condition of this horn looks very good. The photo of the valves shows what I'd call normal wear, and the interior of the case (no photo of the exterior) looks very good. Current bid is $81. This...

    A 4-valve non-compensating euphonium has some problems in the low register when you combine the 4th and other valves. There is no good way to get a true scale. A compensating system helps to solve...
  22. FS: Wessex Dolce 4-Valve Euphonium in Lacquer

    This horn looks to be in very nice condition. It is 2-1/2 years old. The starting bid is $650 (but there is a reserve). Includes case & mouthpiece.

    SOLD FOR $810 - CONGRATULATIONS!

    Arul,

    Thanks for that extra insight! It was a cleverly-designed device from what I can see. Maybe it was a Zig Kanstul innovation.

    Nothing wrong with the basic idea. The 2280 has a provision for a left-hand push-slide-ring for the 3rd valve, so you'd have to decide to either abandon that option (if it is included on the...

    I'm a little hazy on the model names, but the 2-tone bell, bell angle, and valve angle all look like Olds.
