    I especially appreciate this comment, because that was my very thought as I made these (and it's a heck of a lot more work to split/pair them like this!). I know my own audio memory is not very long.

    I'm glad this has been useful. This first round was mp's I considered to be common. For fun, I may do comparisons with my Wick Heritage. Even the 4AL versions of standard/Heritage are a bit...

    Thanks for the tip. I moved this to its own thread. The previous thread was really for the Twin Cities, and Owatonna deserves its own entry.

    I agree with your assessment. But I would surely struggle with the 3AL for a lot of euphonium solos.

    Thanks! The 51D and 3AL are the only mouthpieces I didn't play for any extended period, so perhaps I sounded less comfortable. Of those 2, it's hard to pick a winner. For practical reasons, and...

    5 Mouthpiece Comparisons - Video

    I did this for quick comparison only. In each video only 2 mouthpieces are used, one of which is my own 4AL. This is to give you an idea of the way mouthpieces can change tone color. There are 3...

    Still waiting for the video to render, but I'm anxious to see it.

    The bounce you get on the downstroke I THINK is your own doing. You finger should push the valve all the way down, and if you do...

    Did you buy your horn new? If not, it's possible the pad on top of the piston is no longer doing its job. Bounce is controlled by the density/etc. of the top pad in combination with the springs. In...

    Welcome to the forum and to the wonderful world of valves!

    Tuning to A is not good for euphonium. Many brands are flat on the A - some by a little and some by a lot. Use Bb to set your main tuning...
  17. Sticky: FS: Besson New Standard 3-Valve Compensating Euphonium in Silver

    This type of horn can be great for many users. Lighter than a 4-valve version and allows in-tune use of 3-valve fingerings. Most community bands, for example, would not require a range to low for a...

    Some previous arrangements I have done are partly to give people a chance to play fun music when there is no ensemble handy. For example, my settings of Holst 2nd Suite and the Bydlo for euphonium...
