    I bought the very first 2056 sold in the US in 2008 and played that until I sold it to get my Neo in 2016. Prior to that I used a borrowed York 3056 (made using 956 tooling) for about a year, and the...

    Hi, yeah - I have tried out the BR144 on 3 separate occasions. I really dislike the Besson 956. The 2056 Prestige is worlds better but still has some maddening tuning quirks. I believe the BR144 is...

    Dave - a suggestion about your intonation charts. Perhaps it's too late because you may not have all this data, but maybe you could use a different color or shape for the data points for each note if...

    I opened the dispute because:

    1. I had paid for two mouthpieces and you only ever sent one (hence never received the item)
    2. I had already returned the one several weeks prior,
    3. you had made...

    You are mischaracterizing the transaction. First of all, I have no idea why you'd bring this up nearly 8 years after the fact. Second of all, your web site at the time never said anything about...

    That's one of the reasons I liked the composite "felts' that besson/adams/etc. uses, they are quieter than real felt and they don't really compress as they age.

    This was all the fad in the 1990s. I never had it done to any of my instruments but I know many other players who did and swore they could feel a difference.

    One of the things that can cause valves to dry out very quickly is a large amount of mineral scale on the piston. When's the last time you had a chemical cleaning done?

    And of course moved to solo euphonium in Dyke when Gary Curtin moved to Fodens in 2016.
