    It didn't bother me when I grew my goatee, stage and soulpatch. I had expected more getting used to than it turned out to be.

    Well, that shows how much I know about tubas these days...I thought it looked a bit small for a Bb or even C tuba.

    The tubist was faking it, considering how he did not push the valve all the way...

    I did upload it by phone (android) so I am sure it has something to do with that. But enough about that, let's discuss tuba...I have no idea what make it is, but I do believe it is an Eb.

    Once upon a Time

    Netflix show, Once upon a Time, season 4, episode 7, "Snow Queen". At the ball in Arendelle, a group of musicians play and the tuba player is shown (and heard) very prominently.

    For some reason, I...

    Good point about the return policy, I think I'll give it a try if I can find the budget.

    Also thanks for the remarks about the 3AL being too big. I never thought about it that way; I switched from...

    I am a mediocre player (don't practice daily, or even weekly...:eek:) and currently play a Wessex Festivo with a Wick 3AL. Would you say a Wedge mouthpiece could be useful for me?

    Castell Coch- T. J. Powell

    I really like this march. It is not really challenging for Euphonium/baritone but it does have some nice sixteenth runs. The low brass theme just sounds awesome.

    Here is the performance of my...

    I have my Festivo about half a year now. Initially, I tried the Wick SM4U, but I found I had better slotting using the Wessex MP.
    It should be noted that I'm still in the "Breaking-in" period of my...

    I've changed my main Euph this year, but I cannot change my vote. I chose the Wessex Festivo over my old Hirsbrunner, mainly because of the front valve lay-out.

    Just a few small remarks, if I may:

    A Tenorhorn does not necessarily need to be oval. At least not in the early days. I own a straight Tenorhorn from early 20th Century maker Anton Hüller. It...

    Was the seller perhaps German? That could explain him calling it in the key of B. Germans are odd in that way, calling what we would call 'B flat' -> 'B' and what we would call 'B'-> 'H'....

    Wessex choice for back-up Euphonium?

    My current horn is a 35 years old Hirsbrunner 378. Although it is a very nice horn, it can be a little unresponsive at times (probably mostly due to my lousy embouchure and breathing technique)....

    I am currently looking at a marketplace offer, but rhis instrument has only 5 valves. Would that make it a French Tuba or an Euphonium? It is a Persy Le Triomphe.
