    Rick's suggestion is a good one. One could assume the JP Packer, with its British influence, would be happier with a Wick mouthpiece. The 5AL has an open throat and a pretty sound. It won't sound as...

    I have no idea about the repair cost; I'm sure it varies greatly depending on the shop.

    But my point was if I were buying I'd just ignore it and enjoy playing the horn. My Sterling Virtuoso was...

    Welcome to the forum!

    Do you use a 51D on the Yamaha? The mouthpiece can make a difference. Also, some of the Schilke's (depending on their age, I think) were made with longer shanks, which were...
  4. Sticky: FS: Shires Q41S Euphonium for a Good Price

    This is the well-reviewed Shires compensating euphonium, with the nice hard case. Very fine condition except for a round dent on the bottom bow (in photo below with a stick-on arrow to point it out)....

    I'm not sure how many horns you have to have to be called "a collector" but I suspect you qualify!

    Ollie,

    You might want to take a look at this item for sale, a Conn Connstellation. It's the top of the American front-valve euphonium breed. It needs some dent work but might make a very good horn...
  8. FS: Conn Connstellation 4-Valve Euphonium

    This seems to be in good working order and not good visual condition. BUT, it sounds like it could be a bargain for someone looking for a good 4-valve American euphonium. A hard case is shown in the...

    This refers to what I started noticing about 25-30 years ago. I'd listen through my stereo speakers to a solo I had played with the band. From that room it sounded fine. But then I went into the...

    Welcome to the forum!

    That's an interesting observation, and even more interesting considering I experience the same thing in reverse.

    Welcome to the forum!

    I would advise staying away from that lovely old horn, which was made somewhere around 1909. There are questions about whether it is made to play at A440 for starters. And it...

    Ollie, for what it's worth, I think it would be worth your while to try a few of the large-bore modern horns. I test everything I can get my hands on, and the compensating Willson, Yamaha, and Adams...

    A horn like the ACB will feel smoother to blow and smoother mechanically (especially the valves). Here is a sampler I did with the ACB:

    Those are fine horns if you find one in nice shape. The bore was about .580 on the older Bessons, so they don't empty your lungs quite as fast as the new horns with bores around .592.
