    Nothing chafes me like a bad page-turn. Thank you for taking them into consideration!

    I have found that my recent experience playing euph has made me significantly stronger and steadier on trumpet. It probably has less to do with a mouthpiece and more to do with airflow. Is there a...

    It may be worth mentioning that sometimes there is residue from the manufacturing process in the valve casings. (Edit: This May be causing the scraping noises you described.) It may take awhile to...

    I also have this stand, and when I’m not actively practicing and using it to hold the horn when I take breaks, it holds the euphonium in the Miraphone bag. This way, I store the horn upright and off...

    I used to suffer from the same problem of filling the pockets under my lips with air. In order to fix it, I focused on channeling the flow of air from my throat straight through to the mouthpiece.

    The Besson 165-2 is, I believe, non-compensating. If that makes any difference in your decision making process.

    It’s interesting to read that Algirdas Matonis is currently using the XO. His review of it seemed luke-warm - he appeared to like the action and intonation, but had strong words against the way it...

    The photo with your disassembled horn in a basket reminded me of C3-P0 in The Empire Strikes Back!

    Glad you got your horn back, and I hope you can settle this mystery about a possible air leak...

    It’s probably worth mentioning that I went through a number of mouthpieces before settling on a SM6. I don’t know if it’s my familiarity with trumpet that makes it easier for me to center a pitch...

    I’ll be honest, as a newbie euphonium player, I don’t have a lot of experience with that sort of thing. I’m still getting used to the amount of air with which I need, to fill the horn, when I play. I...

    Hi,

    If the images that I am seeing on the internet for a King 625 is the same as your horn, perhaps leaning from your right knee toward the left might make more sense.

    Thanks for the input. I was worried I was forming a bad habit. It seems like there wouldn’t be any reason not to continue except for being discreet during a performance.

    Wow. This Joykey does appear to be wonderful. I am also apprehensive to poking a hole in my horn, but it might be fun to try on an old trumpet!
