    Might be 50 years ago but still sounds good! The tone is a bit brighter with a .580 bore horn and a 6.5AL mpc but still good. Reel to reel tape recorders bring back some fond memories.

    There’s a vent hole in the bottom of each valve up through the middle to the top of the valve so air won’t be trapped and the valve can move freely. I had a partially blocked vent hole on the top of...

    I know that Robert Pendergast, aka 'euphisto', plays or played the stealth model Hirsbrunner. Haven't seen him post here in the forum in quite awhile. I remember him performing at SRTEC in Sarasota,...

    That does look pretty bad. Unfortunately you can never return music but maybe if you complained to Carl Fischer they might send you a better copy. Might be worth a try.

    Very nice, Dave! I always liked the march, "Semper Paratus" (always ready).
    ...one of the few marches that doesn't add a flat in the trio.

    That's a great list Dave. Not being in a military or pro group, I sometimes have to suggest alternate fingering for a pitch. Also during periods of long rests I'm in the habit of raising one finger...

    Thanks Dave. I found that one but it only says over 500 errors in the original work. Yikes! I suspect there will be lots of 'pencil corrections' on members parts already.

    I don’t like switching mpcs usually cause I find intonation may change and I chip more notes. But after our 2-1/2 year shutdown due to Covid, when I started back to playing regularly I had to drop...

    Wow! Dirt cheap at that price Mark. Looks like 3-valve compensator too. If nothing else there are spare parts that can be used.
