    Makes perfect sense. Exploration is part of the fun. It can be an expensive part of the fun, depending on what you buy and sell. I've never found myself drawn to a Chinese instrument with the...

    I guess a more basic question is whether or not the Jupiter is doing it for you. Do you like the sound, the intonation, the playability, the way it works in your band? Is there something you're not...

    The horn says "Made in Great Britain", but there is a discussion about the origins of the valve set! Daruby, what number is stamped on your valve set? If mine and yours seem sequential, they may...

    It's certainly possible to double on euphonium and tuba, but that's more money, more practice time and divided loyalties, to some extent. So the first question should be: what would you rather play?...

    Yep, that was me. I'm a bit concerned about some of the chatter about "Chinese valve set" on the new Sterlings, but I don't want to pre-judge.

    I got my Conn because it's cool, and because I've always wanted to play a Connstellation. I'm happy to acknowledge that Wessex may be a better VALUE proposition, but I wasn't looking for value. ...

    I play from both the bass clef and treble clef Arbans, mostly just to train myself in bass clef, since I'm a treble clef player, too. The exercises are the same.
