    Many thanks for the link, Rick!

    Sotto Voce is wonderful, and Demondrae has a euphonium sound which is unique, evocative and always a pleasure to hear.

    I liked the Q40 better. There was a little more bloom and complexity in the sound, especially when the melody shifts up an octave towards the end of each sample.

    Nice playing too!

    Thanks to Adams for putting these three videos on YouTube! Of course they're marketing pieces, but mostly they're just wonderful performances by Mauro Martins. You have to get past a bit of talk, but...

    So I ordered one. The shop I placed the order with said Adams was going to make 12 in September, and I could get one from that allocation. If all goes well, I'll have it in October sometime.

    OK, so this video has almost convinced me to order an Adams Sonic. I just love the sound the performer gets on the Sonic!

    Here's a great example of valve trombone as a solo instrument, the jazz player Bob Brookmeyer, playing "Smoke Gets in Your Eyes." In his time he was famous as a valve trombonist.

    I like the lyrical playing and the fat, fluid sound he gets on the recording. This takes me back to the baritone (not euphonium!) sound of the 1960s. No way to know now, but what horn might he have...

    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.

    Ellerby Concerto, MVT III

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