    I'm going to move this question to the "Euph Brands" category. And I think you can find quite a few opinions on JP Sterling (most of them positive) if you browse that category.

    Here is a link that...
  2. Sticky: FS: Boosey & Hawkes Imperial Euphonium in Silver

    This seems to be member Beef's horn. Starting bid is $1,500 and the buy-it-now price is $2,000. See his previous posts for more description of his work on the horn:...

    There is about 1 day left on this auction and no bids yet. There is a make-offer button, so it might be a good time to try for a better price. I really don't know what it might sell for, but it is a...

    Many of us are busy, and I know in my own case I don't always have time to type a long, carefully-worded response. I don't see anything offensive in the comments, or in my suggestion. Just following...

    Not sure about a little over 2k - maybe.

    What mouthpiece do you use? A 51D might get your Besson to sound a little more like Adam/Brian.

    This post had been invisible to others until this morning. I just noticed it had been "on hold" pending review. That system is automatic so I'm not sure why.

    Anyway, I have no opinion to add, but...
  9. Sticky: FS: GORGEOUS Conn 10i 3-Valve Satin Silver and Gold Wash

    Bad news first: the starting big is $900. So this is not for someone just looking for "a horn." But it is the nicest sample I've seen in a long time for the American euphonium. Frosted//satin silver...

    Agreed! But looking at the numbers - 700k villages that may each have multiple bands - and from hearing the quality of the bands they displayed, I think I understand how their market works for them....

    Welcome to the forum!

    I think of the 48 as a starter mouthpiece, so it sounds like time for you to move up. A well-regarded Yamaha artist (Paul Droste) used to play a 321, and at that time he used...

    Brass Instruments Made in India

    We have discussed in the past about the low quality of Indian instruments. This video gives that concept more context. They make horns for a huge number of local bands. I assume they are made to be...

    It surprised me a bit, too, at least from the graphics of the waves. When I have a chance (and have the house to myself) I might try the same thing, but with the recorder upstairs while I'm in my...

    A key factor to success is making sure your recording has a manual-record-level option. My Canon camcorder does, but I don't know if all/current models do.

    Sorry to hear about the desperate times part.

    Given the price of sterling silver these days, this is a really good buy! (Is the Bonna case included?)

    As part of my new series of short demonstrations I've added one that in a little over a minutes shows the differences in euphonium sound for open, straight mute, and practice mute.
