    Misa Mead

    Just heard this lovely, sensitive performance by Misa Mead. I hope that she continues to perform jazz ballads, because it's so rare to hear the euphonium played well in this style.

    The first time I heard a 2280, from a guy who was sitting in our community band, it was a head turner because of its warm, resonant sound. I've always liked them since.

    Hmm, to reply to myself, I left out bore size. Too open and I start to sound tubaish; too closed, too tromboney. But everyone is different.

    Yamaha makes a bell front YEP-211, which would definitely play brighter than the Festivo. Inexpensive used ones are sometimes on Ebay.

    Ellerby Concerto, MVT III

    Perhaps the most beautiful, sad, and moving piece of slow, lyrical writing for the euphonium to be heard:

    It's not a Neo, so it's the original 642. Seems to be in good shape. If there were no hidden problems, I might offer up to $3,000.

    I've played both mouthpieces for extended periods each. In terms of sound the main difference is the SM3 plays warm & smooth, the DC2 brilliant & fluid.
