    Just wanted to check something with you Mp4G. When you say you are looking for a "baritone", do you mean that you are looking for a British style baritone, or an American style one? The American...

    I am impressed with the simplicity of design in this instrument. We tend to get all fussed about things like triggers and fancy valve caps, but this one is just three valves and their loops, plus a...

    It is always fun to hear pros rehearse (smile). But now what I would really like is to get Hiram's take of this same rehearsal, from "behind the mouthpiece" so to speak.

    It sounds like you are concentrating all your efforts on the valve piston itself. But that is not the only part affected by oiling your valves. Take a look in the valve casing and see if there is...

    I have never heard an actual answer to this one, but I am going to try a couple answers of my own. Five or more euphoniums (or any brass instrument) in one place is a "band" or maybe a "racket". ...

    Where to get sheet music?

    I think that I have decided to bite the bullet and subscribe to a sheet music service. Something that will download the notes onto paper for whatever tune is buzzing around in my head. Something to...

    And with that outlook, you may be able to make the baritone work regardless of the type of ensemble you are in. Just ask the folks sitting near you, the person who assigns the parts, and the...

    Gotta love that face!

    I like to watch how a brass player's face (and body) moves while they play. I particularly enjoyed that this video spent so much time "watching" the soloist so that I could see all I wanted of that....
  9. BR140 Baritones are great!

    I will second this motion. You know that you at least "like" and can trust the Wessex brand of instruments, as evidenced by your experience with their euphoniums. Stick with that (smile).

    I just had to laugh when I read this response. Arbans has more content than modern method books, easily 5X. There is much more to chose from when practicing. Jean-Baptiste Arbans included a wide...

    As someone who plays a sister-horn to your Jinbao baritone, I would say don't sell that one. But that is completely coming from a nostalgia and emotional based appeal. But if it helps you acquire a...

    Good morning John (smile). Do you have an extra stand for sale, or did I miss something? I would like to get a stand for my horn, but have a $50 budget. The K & M stands I see online all go for...

    Ideas

    It seems to me that this would be easy enough to build a spreadsheet and/or database for managing. The trick would be just having the time to keep it up, so that it has current information on who...

    Is the Telemann Aria the only one that includes a treble clef version? For some of us amateurs (and non-transposers), it would be helpful to know which clef the parts are available in. Thank you in...

    I very much liked this! I would like to hear more like this. It does come across more like a music video than how multi-track recordings are typically presented.

    How much, including shipping, for a Hercules DS552B Tuba/Euphonium Stand? You would be sending it to Elk Grove, CA 95624. Does it hold the smaller baritone horn well? Or is it geared for the "big...

    Keep the lyre box please

    I, for one, vote to keep the lyre box. But then, I came up through the marching band side of brass music. It also makes other stand up gigs, Christmas caroling anyone?, easier. I remember looking...

    My issue does not seem to come from using my tongue to stop or release the notes. Fortunately, that is one bad habit I do not seem to have.

    I do have the issue that my 1/16 notes are not uniform...
