    Yep, just add a comment to the post like "This is a really great (fill in the blank, i.e. euphonium) and I am practically giving it away". When you make a comment on an existing post, it goes to the...

    That, my friend, gives new meaning to the term "valve bounce"! That is valve bounce followed by re-bounce followed by bounce-again. Something is very, very off with that. I can only imagine a...

    This is a particularly good point, that is, the first part about the weather being warm. My Adams E3 verges on being a "flat horn". I have my main tuning slide out just a wee bit. I do have to...

    The tuning "trigger" on the Geneva is really interesting. It looks sort of like the typical 4th side valve on a 3+1 horn instead of the flat trigger placed in the third valve wrap. I am just trying...

    Hey Brian,

    Welcome to the forum!! I just checked out your YouTube channel. That is very useful. And nice playing!! I have tons of low brass excepts from Cherry Classics Music I think it is. ...

    Thanks a bunch for the background, Doug!! Siobhan is indeed very special. I envy you in your trips to Wales in the summer for IBBSS. I just might join you yet, if I live long enough, can still...

    Probably a Wessex Sinfonico. I bought a Wessex Dolce a few years ago and it was a great horn for just over $1,200 at the time. The Sinfonico is more hand made, has some nice features, and from...

    I like Rick's approach with adding a couple or three washers. I am rusty on Physics and Hooke's Law regarding springs, but once you stretch out a spring to the point of deforming it (which you have...

    I have done the same, Rick. With a flugelhorn player and another time a trumpet player. Really a nice tune. The video that Doug posted the link to is really nice. I think I am really liking the...

    My question is if the heavy cap does something useful screwed onto the 4th valve, why aren't euphoniums made/sold with this bit of engineering/manufacturing already in place? I suppose cost could be...

    Thanks for posting, Dave. I am, by the way, feeling much less like an idiot (find other post where I confessed to being an idiot because of my blunder about the order for playing the service songs)....

    Mine is also about 50/50 and a tad off center as well, but just a tiny bit, and same reason as Rick - due to my teeth structure.. Finding the "right" position and percentage of upper and lower lip...

    Well, I'm still an idiot, but maybe just a part-time idiot. Take a look here:

    Egads! I think I am losing it or have lost it!! You are absolutely right, Dave. The Army is first. We play the Armed Forces Medley every November on our concert. And the Army is always first. I...

    That was catchy, but being a traditionalist and retired Army guy, I would have to say that I prefer the services official songs be played straight. The order of precedence was sort of ignored, I...

    Now I feel like a grouch, sorry!! On an annoyance scale from 1 to 10 with 1 being very little, it was about a .01. I'm a little embarrassed.
  21. Thanks Dave - You fixed an annoying thing!!

    Up until today, used to be every time you went to a new page on the forum and got ready to click something, the page then loaded a bunch of icon links to things like Facebook, Twitter, etc. (I...
  22. Here is a First - Played it so Much it Broke!

    Well, I just had a first in all my 55 years of playing euphonium. I was practicing this evening and at about the 1 1/2 hour mark, I noticed my first valve was not returning to the full upright...

    Now I have to admit I didn't think this was possible. I truly thought air needed to be blown from your body into the horn. I tried to play a note on my horn by sucking, and almost passed out while...

    Get well, my friend. At least with this crappy coronavirus going around, perhaps you wouldn't be going many places, so good time to recuperate. Sure sorry to see you have to go through this.

    That sure seems like a better solution. The municipal band I play in during the summer does all of its concerts outdoors. The band plays in a band shell and the audience sits out in the open air. ...
