    The valve number is stamped on the top of each piston, there is no marking on the outside valve block. I have an E3, but it should be the same for the E1 as they both use the Bauerfeind valve block....

    That is quite nice and I really enjoyed seeing the country. Well done!

    I am probably not the best person to ask, because, I really don't do much of anything with the main tuning slide other than put on regular slide grease, very little and a light grade, then sometimes...

    Generally speaking the larger bell provides a "larger" sound, whereas a smaller bell will provide a more focused sound with better clarity. I think most good players can make either the 11 or 12...

    Doug,

    I believe the brushed finish on my Adams is indeed lacquered. I actually don't know about inside the bell. It is polished sterling silver. I don't know if that gets lacquered or not. I...

    Yes, leaving the horn out can speed up the accumulation of tarnish. Much less in the case. I leave my horn out, but it only has a shiny part inside the bell, and I leave a cloth over the top of the...

    Woodstock Tuba Quartet

    Here is an interesting video of a "tuba quartet". Check out the instruments. If you had a big head like mine (with nothing in it), you might have a bit of a time getting into that instrument. ...

    Yes, me too. I am playing with the Adams heavy cap (one that is very similar to the Sterling long heavy cap). I have been using it for about two weeks. I want to get totally used to it for a...

    Well, after reading through the comments above, seems I (and my significant other, Linda) am alone in preferring the standard cap. So, I went back and listened again just now after mowing the yard...

    Well, I listened to the comparisons several times. With my eyes closed, once I knew the sequence of which cap was being used. Then changed my position in the room I am in, a fairly live room with...

    I have a B&H Imperial circa 1956. I can play my horn in tune, and I have the main slide out a little less than an inch. I am wondering about your mouthpiece. I use the original mouthpiece that...

    Picking a BBb vs an Eb I would think is pretty dependent on what groups you plan/want to play in. If you were going to play in a symphony orchestra or a large wind ensemble/concert band, then I...

    One more thing if you are really obsessed with getting tonging faster. I first learned to double tongue from a drummer!!! Go figure. He was a friend of mine in 9th grade. He had this silly thing...

    Triple tonguing at 170, if solidly done with clarity, is certainly a good point from which to build up more speed. My little exercise at the start of this post with triple tonguing and slurring...

    So, your message along with Dave's message below it might confuse some readers. If I understand it, Big Ian, you say you can triple tongue at quarter note = 170. That would be 3 notes (triplets)...

    I share a similar past as being a Boy Scout bugler while my dad was stationed in Germany in the 1950's.

    As for the bugle, Bb as far as I know. I think today that The U.S. Army Band is the only...

    Good question. I know the HBC I am getting will fit the Adams. Not so sure about the Dolce. [Timeout] Just back from checking to see if the standard Adams bottom cap for the 4th valve is...

    My HBC arriveth tomorrow, me thinks. It is half way through South Dakota today, and I am in the other half. Anxious to try it. I already liked the heavy cap I borrowed from Doug Ruby.

    Oh, I doubt that!! I think they enjoy your playing. But it does surprise you when a spring breaks, not expected at all, ever!

    I play multiple instruments with decent success. Euphonium is clearly my main instrument, and I devote most of my time to it. But I do also play a lot of trombone, tenor in one orchestra and bass...

    The Taylor 814 was what I traded in to get the Taylor 912 (rather what my wife traded for me!). Those are really nice guitars.

    The Yamaha FG 1500 is indeed a great guitar. Brazilian rosewood. And the backs of those guitars are really beautiful. After posting my arsenal of instruments, I broke out the Taylor to play for a...
