  1. Sticky: FS: GORGEOUS Conn 10i 3-Valve Satin Silver and Gold Wash

    Bad news first: the starting big is $900. So this is not for someone just looking for "a horn." But it is the nicest sample I've seen in a long time for the American euphonium. Frosted//satin silver...

    Welcome to the forum!

    I think of the 48 as a starter mouthpiece, so it sounds like time for you to move up. A well-regarded Yamaha artist (Paul Droste) used to play a 321, and at that time he used...

    Brass Instruments Made in India

    We have discussed in the past about the low quality of Indian instruments. This video gives that concept more context. They make horns for a huge number of local bands. I assume they are made to be...
