    I just happened upon this post. I think no one welcomed you to the forum. Welcome to the forum, Carl!! I think we know each other. I played a little bit with you in a tuba/euphonium quartet in...

    Well, I own a Wessex Dolce, in addition to a Boosey & Hawkes Imperial and an Adams E3 Custom. I bought the B&H Imperial for $1,000 a couple years ago, and it is in stellar condition (it is a 1956...

    Warburton Demondrae Thurman signature mouthpiece. I love it. My lips, especially lower, tend to be on the larger side of normal.

    Not sure what you mean by "if it doesn't play low". A 4 valve compensating baritone plays the same notes that a 4 valve compensating euphonium plays. The 4 valves can help by providing alternate...

    I suspect the Buescher horn of 1924 is pitched lower than A=440. Not uncommon for that to be the case with horns built in that time frame. I don't think I would spend a lot of time trying to get...

    Now that is just downright cool. Strikes close to home, also, as Adam Vinatieri went to high school in Rapid City, just down the road a few miles from where I live.

    I searched for a bit with no luck finding a copy in bass clef. I am assuming the books I saw are in treble clef. Have you considered the new version of Arban's Complete Method with comments by...

    Wessex might be a very good choice. They currently have 4 Eb compensating models, 3 of which are the 3+1 variety, the other is a front valve 4 in line model. I own the Wessex Bombino model Eb. It...

    Well, age certainly can play a part in your playing. However, if you are in good health, I contend that you can play at a fairly high level (relative to your own playing proficiency over your life)...

    I just reweighed my Adams E3, Sterling Silver bell, .6 mm, trigger, AGR and no mouthpiece (I may have included this in the weight I gave in my review 3 years ago). It came in at 10 pounds, +/- .25...

    Barry - I think you are absolutely right. I didn't even think about that, but I should have. I would be curious to know how the Hirsbrunner compares with an Adams E3 overall, not just the power...

    I owned a Hirsbrunner around 1998. I honestly can't remember the model number, but it was top of the line, 4 valve, compensating, silver plate. It was a honey of a horn. I just now took a look at...

    Quite right you are, Dean!! The tuba sits most of the time (brass quintet/ensemble 2 or 3 times a year), but both trombones get used for two different year round symphony orchestras, and the Adams...

    Well, I don't use any foot rest or lap pillow with the euphonium, although I admit when I play guitar (in a guitar flute duet), I do use a footrest. For the euphonium, I just simply like it so much,...
