    My go to tuner is Tunable: https://tunable.affinityblue.com/

    It displays pitch as a graph, rather than just using a needle. It's enlightening to see how pitch can change over the life of a note....

    Or the person who writes a bunch of non-compensating euphonium fingerings in ink. Sight reading a part cluttered with fingerings I couldn't use was fun.

    My philosophy is this: mark what you need to mark so that the conductor doesn't have to make the same comment twice.

    Think of the 7/8 as 3+2+2. When practicing slowly, put some weight on the sixth 8th note in the 7/8 bars. That's going to clarify the meter change for you and your listener.

    This is actually one of those euphonium habits that's made its way back into my trumpet playing. There are times when the third valve is really the best option, whether it's due to tuning, response,...

    Regarding the Kanstul tooling, I'm super skeptical. So far as I can tell, there are two distinct models of Kanstul compensating euphoniums. The first generation looks more Besson-ish on quick...

    I'm really disappointed to see the trouble that Kanstul is in right now. I've been absolutely thrilled with mine, and I know tons of players who swear by their flugels. I'm hoping they can pull...

    It most likely has to do with the slide positions. If you try to buzz a particular note and the instrument isn't the right length to make that note, the note will crack as the instrument forces your...

    The quest for brevity resulted in an over-generalization. What I was thinking when I wrote that was limited to the 9' Bb, uses a trombone/euphonium mouthpiece type of instrument. Of course the horn...

    Before you bypass it, you might want to check with them and see if they made any feature or configuration changes around the time the issue began.

    Hi Dave,

    When did you start using CloudFlare? The symptoms look to me like session persistence issues one would see with a firewall or load balancer.
