    Donít know the piece but you should be able to find a good place to make a cut to meet your time limit.

    I think this is what David is saying. Besson's have had the same intonation quirks for decades. My guess is there is something in the design they do not want to change for fear the characteristic...

    One comment. Manufacturers use different gauge metals to achieve desired tone qualities and resonance. Adams even offers options for material thickness in their Custom euphoniums. This can affect the...

    Hi Brandon, I do not see your posts as confrontational and I appreciate your perspective. From my perspective and as a brass band player, it could be that I'm biased. But I hang out here a lot and in...

    Brandon, I think you are misinterpreting what I am saying or else I did not make myself clear. First of all I know Dr. Bowman and I went to college for 4 years with Roger Behrend and he and I remain...

    As these are clone horns, they are designed and built to play like an established brand like Yamaha, Besson or others and more specifically like a certain model. I do not know what the JP or Wessex...

    Letís just say that there a lot of people on this site that happily play Wick SM mouthpieces. And some use the plates. I have close friends who play all manner of brass instruments that use the...

    Another reason some euphonium players move to conducting or teaching at a university is the limited earnings potential as a soloist. Steven apparently has found a way to do so. He also does not mind...

    It could also be that the dealers don't want to jeopardize their Besson franchises by picking up Adams euphoniums. Besson has been the standard for 100 years or so and they are heavily established as...

    Sorry but I can't agree with any of this. What does age have to do with any of this? Steven is a world class euphonium player, one of the very best. He travels the world and plays his ass off. I...

    Iím sure heís getting the sound he wants. It has nothing to do with his age. Heís in his early 50ís I believe. Thatís far from old.

    I don't think this is true at all. Steve plays on an SM4X (maybe U) these days and his tone is as nice as ever. He's always had great range in both registers. I believe he once played the SM3U and...

    No problem at all. There are a lot of factors to consider. I'm no kid at 61 but I do play a lot and am able to support the air through my horn which is an advantage in the upper registers. Thus my...

    Hi.

    It's rare for euphonium players to switch mouthpieces like this. We tend to stick with one for all pieces as this gives us the euphonium sound we prefer. A 46 would be a small mouthpiece for a...

    Really hard to tell any differences between the two. In the Holst I felt a bit more presence in horn A, other than that they sounded as close to identical as possible. There are far to many variables...

    I don't know if DC is an outlier due to the service bands and the euphonium students they teach. I've been in the brass band world for the last 23 years and the 2900 is a rare bird there. It's not...

    Interesting comments from the rep. Maybe it's what I read on the internet but the 2900 does not seem to be that popular these days as most are going for larger bore horns. Shires is definitely going...

    I am a bit shocked that a brand new professional euphonium would be specified with a medium shank mouthpiece. There are two significant reasons not to go this direction.

    1) The trend over the last...

    Roger is the reason I play a 2900. He and I went to college together and Brian Bowman was a huge influence on Roger. He and I both had school horns (round stamp sovereigns) at Michigan State but...

    Your band director has given you excellent advice. First rate. Don't be afraid to use a pillow or similar to raise the horn up so you don't bend your neck down.

    A few years ago I switched from the SM4M to the SM4XM. I tried the regular Ultra (SM4MU) at the same time. I chose the X mainly because of the smoothness in slurred passages. It's effortless. Also...

    As Dave's chart shows, the middle F is a bit sharp and the G above that is close to perfect. The following A is extremely flat. It is characteristic of the 2900. It is on my horn when played with my...
