    The 3 valve compensating Besson/Boosey&Hawkes euphonium was often used as an intermediate instrument purchased by high schools here in the US during the late 1950s and 1960s as an alternative to the...

    Steve Vaughn,

    The trigger assembly looks a LOT like the older mechanism on my Sterling Virtuoso. Similar screw based tuning (which incidentally makes pulling the tuning slide out problematic).

    To all,

    I am NOT a fan of most 4 valve baritones. In the brass band context, you just won't use the 4th valve for range and using it for intonation or alternate fingerings is of marginal value...

    Hi all,

    I started instrumental music midway through the 4th grade in January 1960 on baritone horn at age 9. I think I was playing a 3 valve Bundy bell front at the time. I also played Reynolds...

    My early 2007 German built 2051 also had that gap. The change to the newer wrap didn't occur until 2011 or so (I think).

    Definitely not an HBS 479. This is functionally equivalent to Yamaha YEP-621 (non comp 3+1 valve).

    Same here. The 1st and 2nd valve compensating loops will dump their water BACK into the 4th valve loop when using 1-4 and 2-4 combinations. The third valve comp slide may accumulate a little bit of...

    I agree with Dave. These horns (which I played as well) shipped with a medium-to-small shank adapter and an absolutely horrid Besson 10 medium shank mouthpiece. I used the adapter and my Bach 6 1/2...

    That looks more like an Eb Tuba. The valve slides are too long to be euphonium.

    Gianfranco,

    Serial number records for #86327x show this was manufactured in later 1998 or early 1999. As all 967s do, it would have a 12" bell.

    I will answer this a bit. The answer is no. The E2 is a very heavy horn much like a Miraphone 5050. With its 11" bell, the Sinfonico does not sound like an Adams (to me) at all. I would consider...
