    Perantucci Mouthpieces

    Justin,

    My Sterling came with a PT-5C with the new mouthpiece shape. It is a very nice mouthpiece. I did not care for it because the 5C has a rim and throat size similar to a Denis Wick 4AL, which...

    I bought a Sterling

    I assume that the sterlings i played where made before that change. They were great horns with solid construction and the tuning was great except for the 6th partial. If I were to play it extensively...

    I bought a Sterling

    I liked the sound, but the 6th partial was super sharp, and it didn't respond very well. I also only played them for 5 minutes and that isn't enough time to fully assess the horns. It also plays very...

    I bought a Sterling

    If I didn't like both of the pre-Virtuoso Sterlings I played, would I like the Sterling Virtuoso?

    I know the certain horns play better with certain mouthpieces. For example, the I feel that the Yamaha's respond better to the SM4 that the 4AL. I also think the Besson New Standard I used to play...

    Hirsbrunner

    Thats a good question. I have a BB1 for the euro shank, and I also own a 51D for the large shank. I like the BB1 more, but isn't the HB better adapted for the large shank? What would you do in this...

    Water Catchers

    I see what you mean, John. For me, it wasn't the catcher, it was the pad inside. The pad made the valves sticky and noisy, and the sound rather stuffy. What I did was replace the pad with an old...
  16. Dealing with vintage besson intonation and response

    I think that Texas Tech has at least 10 New Standards and Sovereigns, and Imperials with none of them checked out, which is a shame. How consistent was the quality of vintage British euphoniums? I...

    Pat's recording is good, but I prefer Kelly Thomas's. The piece is in Kelly's album, Appetizers. Check it out!

    Miraphone 5050

    My teacher told me that the M5050 plays a lot like the big Hirsbrunner, but a lot easier and a lot better. Is this the case? I loved the Hirsbrunner, but it was a bit hard in the high register
