    Players used smaller mouthpieces than 25.5mm for...

    Players used smaller mouthpieces than 25.5mm for decades. The Conn 3A is 22.5mm. The Besson 10 is 24.4mm (and is super deep). I'm quite satisfied with my sound on the JK EU12B and, for better or...

    That's the Precision era 64-I which is pretty much a small bore Euphonium. I'm sure it completely destroys the Artist era Saxhorn derivative, and if I had $1000 burning a hole in my pocket, I'd have...

    Conn only used the terms Baritone or Euphonium to distinguish, and those terms were only really meaningful in the Artist era. I use the term Baritone Saxhorn to specifically indicate an instrument...
  4. I am well aware of the difference between the...

    I am well aware of the difference between the Baritone Saxhorn, the British Baritone Horn, and the Euphonium. I own examples (multiple) of all three. There is a difference between a "Baritone" and...

    I hate always being the negative nancy, but someone needs to say it.

    This is a Double Bell Baritone. Probably a 75-I. It would have come with both HP and LP tuning slides. The receiver has...
  6. All of the forward-bell Bessons were built for US...

    All of the forward-bell Bessons were built for US market and would have been built as LP instruments. Supposedly, Besson was still making some high pitch instruments up to 1965, but I seriously...

    I saw the listing. With an original mouthpiece, great condition, and $350?! Steal. Buy it.

    The Trombonium is a fantastic instrument, marred by issues with the mouthpiece. The original...

    I have the 3V top action version which aught to be roughly the same in playing characteristics. Really good British Euph. Given that mine was a former school marching instrument that was obviously...

    The Connstellation does not have a Remington shank receiver. The Conn 5's shank is 11.8mm at standard taper, with a tiny backbore. If you don't have the adapter, it's custom mouthpiece time. ...

    Unprofessional and Unpopular Opinion: 24mm is big enough.

    There's a lot to say about cup volume, and I consider it the most important thing. Unfortunately, cup diameter does play a part. It's...

    The variety of F and Eb Alto things is pretty much endless. Regardless, comparing any of them to the French Horn is an insult to the French Horn. Hardly any of these instruments are any match for...
  12. An actual list of almost every tenor shank for reproduction purposes

    This isn't everything, and I haven't been able to confirm every single shank type, but this is a pretty huge sample. Fact of the matter is that the cost of acquiring anything beyond what I already...
  13. How to: Custom mouthpiece for Connstellation Euphonium 24-I and 25-I

    I finally snagged a Conn 5 mouthpiece and dissected it right quick. I see why no one liked it. It's awful.

    The Conn 5 Experience

    Rim shape = Flat as heck
    Cup diameter ~ 25.3mm
    Cup shape =...

    Here's what an 8H leadpipe looks like. That is not an off-the-shelf attachment for the 90G.

    I doubt I have anything useful to add, but here's the take of a nerd that just likes playing anything remotely resembling a brass instrument.

    I always called the British sound a "tone bath". The...

    I agree with the others. Mute seems like the worst option. Aimed away sounded really good. But like euphlight said...if you're still not satisfied, use less horn.

    And none of that confirms whether or not the 90G has the Remington shank receiver, nor does it provide enough information to reproduce the 24-I/25-I shank without an example of the either the adapter...

    Because no one ever documents anything. The only people who any information about anything specific like this are the people who actually own the item and know the required information about it. ...

    I'm not sure if Conn actually called the other shank sizes Remington or that's just poor documentation. I thought they were all the same name for a while, but have since given up on the idea.

    The...

    According to this, it's .281" (7.1mm). Sure took a while to find it, though. :confused:

    I maintain what I said on YouTube. Maybe the microphone isn't telling the whole story, but the Doubler sounds really similar to the old Bessons, to me. Not my favorite Euphonium sound, but I liked...

    For reasons unbeknownst to me, the 44E4 is actually shallower than the 51D. It's very similar to the old Besson 10, if you've ever seen one of those. Besson 10 has a better (larger) throat. ...

    If you want something small and deep, try a Schilke 44E4. It's deeper than the 6.5AL, similar cup diameter to the 12C, and has a good rim for small embouchure. Throat isn't as large, obviously. ...

    The other instruments are a single Tenorhorn and a Baritone.

    I looked it up. Looks like a really old Chinesium rebrand. Probably Jinbao or Jinyin.

    What mouthpiece are you using? I haven't had the luxury of encountering a piston horn that's so sensitive...
