    Update - Adopting digital

    Okay folks. I finally pulled the trigger and purchased a device for this purpose. I wanted/needed a new computer too, so I ended up getting a 13.3 inch 2-1 laptop/tablet hybrid (HP Spectre 360). I...

    And friendly suggestion (smile) - Buy from a seller offering a hard sided case. Not too much difference in price. And a kid may complain about the difference in weight. But the added protection...

    Agreed!

    I will second Dave's opinion there. I purchased the same Jinbao JBBR-1240 baritone from an Ebay vendor and am very pleased with the service and the horn. It is now going on three years old, so I...

    Kind of fun to listen to because of the swing twist/flare (smile). But for the low brass folks, nothing much special to play. Until you get to the dogfight that is. The overall flavor changed, but...

    Bingo!

    Rick - This is getting better and better. Treble is my preferred clef too. Would you consider selling it to me for a few bucks, instead of returning it? PM me and we can work out the details.

    Hello Rick (smile). Correct me if I am wrong. Your copy would be for the bass clef euphonium part?

    Are there any other numbers engraved elsewhere on the horn? I know that with some old horns, the horn body had one serial number, and the valve block had another. It sounds like each set of valves...

    The trick and expense may come from trying to get the horn home. Make sure that you consider that as you consider the price and whether to make the deal or not. Also, make sure you have good...
