    As far as I can tell, an E3 without a special bell is very reasonably priced at the professional level. Even with the SS bell itís comparable to a Prestige or Willson.

    You have a great opportunity. Having two of the fundamentally exact horns, other than the valves, do you see any differences in how they play? Tone quality, intonation or otherwise?

    Fascinating! Dr. Bowman looking for the pre-Sovereign sound. The classic Besson sound.

    This video brings back memories of my student days at Michigan State starting in 1975. I donít recall what...

    Just FYI, Willson no longer shows the 2975 on their website. Not sure if that means itís discontinued.

    Perhaps I was not clear. Valve front euphoniums with upright bells are an anomaly. In that context they are barely worth discussion academically. Valve front horns with front facing valves are far...

    Hi Sara. Perhaps Iím missing something. If so I apologize in advance.

    When you say valve front are you exclusively referring to upright bell euphoniums or also bell front horns often called...

    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...

    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...

    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...
