    Matt Tropman Continuum

    For anyone who's curious about how a pro-level player can sustain pyrotechnics through sustained passages and still find a breath in there somehow, I recommend the first track of Matt Tropman's CD...

    I agree placing any euphonium on its bell is not a good practice and yet I see videos of Matt Tropman doing it all the time. And I believe that's with a sterling silver bell E1. Yikes. My seat mate...

    Suggest the John Packer JP274S euphonium. Can be bought new in the $1500 range (such as through DF Music). Some colleges, including Ole Miss, list is as an acceptable low-priced pro-level horn.

    Like Christianne, I own a JP274 MKII and have had it for a year now. It plays fine and I see no wear yet on the silver plating. And like Christianne, I'm considering adding a pro-level horn to my...

    Nearing purchase decision between these two. Haven't play tested either one but did watch several times the recent Matonizz comparison between the YEP-842ST and YEP-642 Neo. I did own for a while a...

    My bass trombone teacher, who plays in two area symphonies and small ensembles recommended the Ferguson M series DF Gold (available from the Horn Guys). That's what I use and I love it.

    Best Case for Adams E1?

    Wondering about the best case options for Adams E1 .60 Sterling Silver bell. I believe the Marcus Bonno ($750) XL model may be a good fit, but that's it. I'm not sure about other choices or even if...

    On slow days I find myself cruising through the forum to older and older posts. One thing I've noticed is that more than one pro-level player among us began their love affair with ADAMS horns with...

    One question I have, though, is whether the E1 model will cease to exist in favor of the E3 improvements. Any thoughts about that?
  14. Considering ADAMS E1, SS bell, .6 thickness

    Have been thinking about this for some time. I've listened to Dave's E3 v E1 recordings many times over. To my ears, the E1 has an edge on personal appeal of the sound. Discovered E1 with SS bell...

    I highly recommend the JP 274S compensating (3+1) euphonium. Years back I owned a Besson Prestige and a Yamaha 642S (both pro-level horns). I don't feel at all deprived paying the JP274S in my...

    I believe Algirdas still uses his Sterling Virtuoso as his primary horn; interestingly enough, he uses a JP274S as his backup.
