    I have managed to avoid flying with my horn for several years, but no doubt I'll need to at some point. I have a Bonna case I could check, and I have a Cronkhite gig bag I could try to carry on....

    From a Count Basie Special??

    Here are a couple clips from the NPR special "Count Basie - Through His Own Eyes". This is talking about the very early day of Basie. You just never know where these horns will show up!

    Welcome to the forum!

    John's advice is good. One other factor is whether you will always have a microphone. If not, the King might be better because it is available with a forward-firing bell as...

    My own measurements would say that my E3 (probably the E1/2 as well) has a 16mm 4th bore on both sides. That is interesting to me because I think my Virtuoso used 15mm for the main bore, 16 for...

    I'll ask Adams, but I'm guessing the 16mm bore size is for the first part of the 4th valve loop. There are usually 3 measurements: main bore, early compensating loop, 4th valve main loop. Adams' site...

    It's a hard instrument to categorize. I've only played the prototype so far, so I can't comment on the production model. My best guess is that it is a clear step up from the Dolce level. As Alex said...

    I wish I could hear it but I have a date tonight. No doubt you'll play great, though!

    Which version of Carnival of Venice will you be playing?

    Show 'em what a euphonium can do, Martin!

    I suspect it will be a fairly fix - probably the short leg of the slide needs to be expanded slightly. But be aware that there are very few players who try to play while this slide is partway out....

    I had neglected to check the UK price, so I see what you mean. So I have to retract my statement that it matched your goal in that way. It's still about the best bet, though.

    You might find a used...

    I second John's advice. The Wessex fits your needs perfectly and they have U.K. distributorship. The Dolce model is not a Sovereign, but it comes brand new for a fraction of the price of a new...

    Doug and I share a disincentive for having a trigger on a horn! One of my issues is a compromised wrist due to over-practicing during prep for a hard solo on my old (heavy) Sovereign 967 (it also had...

    Welcome to the forum!



    You should read through the Euph Brands section to see about Wessex and JP Sterling euphoniums. That would suggest possible new horns in the range from 1200-3000.

    As David said, it is very comfortable for players of all ages and skill levels. I think you would be glad to be there if you so choose.

  19. Call the Midwife - with Charley Brighton

    The British series "Call the Midwife" apparently had a scene with a town band playing in a gazebo/bandstand. The euphonium player closest to the conductor is my friend Charley Brighton!

    Good project, Doug! I would point out that one of Adams' main concepts is keeping the metal a uniform thickness, which would point to a .70 ss bell. The extra thickness would make it a teeny bit more...

    I think this is the best buy I've see for a while. It was made in the mid-1920's and is in good physical shape. Lacquer is not great, but not horrible, and the dents are small. Shipping is only $64...

    It might be Thomas Ruedi's arrangement. I have it on a CD of his, but it does not appear to have found its way to YouTube. Bente's is very nice, but I think his is a bit better performance, IMHO.
