    My primary care physician is a DO. What about that profession? It is kind of like a hybrid between chiropractice and MD, though realistically speaking most DOs practice more like MDs.

    mbrooke,

    The pain is on the inside of my fore arm, extending into the hand. In the fore arm it usually starts about midway, slightly toward the wrist, and extends about to the finger.

    I'm not an expert by any means, but I would probably agree with most opinion expressed here that Arban would be the first choice.

    Bb euphonium or EEb tuba?

    This is listed as an EEb tuba, presumably meaning an Eb tuba. However, the photos look more like a Bb euphonium to me. Is it possible to tell the difference from the photos? If it is an Eb tuba I am...

    Has anyone used the book Low Brass Player's Guide to Doubling by Micah Everett? If so, how useful is it for a euphonium player doubling on tuba?
