    On any of the euphoniums I have owned with a trigger for the main tuning slide, there is a mechanism (barrel) to move the tuning slide in or out (separate from the actual trigger). I adjust this to...

    Hello Michael !!

    Welcome to the forum.

    I own a Wessex Dolce and a couple other high end euphoniums. I personally would choose the Dolce over the Festivo.

    Ditto what Dave said. I own the Eb Bombino. It is a great tuba for a great price. The lacquered version is just a couple hundred more than the Mighty Midget.

    I have to agree that I don't much like playing (or hearing) a piece that has been altered from the original. After all, the composer put in the notes he/she wanted. If he/she had intended to have...

    This is an excellent suggestion. I know that sometimes when playing some challenging music in orchestra, the conductor may take a section that is fast by beating each note rather than perhaps going...

    Another thought. You say you verbally count your parts with the subdivisions. Are you saying that you count like "1 and a 2 e and a", etc. where you have a syllable for every note? This can be...

    I see you live in Florida (nice weather for this suggestion). As a person who played in the Army and marched while playing a lot, you might try taking walks and singing or thinking tunes to the beat...

    Not sure what you mean by "if it doesn't play low". A 4 valve compensating baritone plays the same notes that a 4 valve compensating euphonium plays. The 4 valves can help by providing alternate...

    I suspect the Buescher horn of 1924 is pitched lower than A=440. Not uncommon for that to be the case with horns built in that time frame. I don't think I would spend a lot of time trying to get...

    Wessex might be a very good choice. They currently have 4 Eb compensating models, 3 of which are the 3+1 variety, the other is a front valve 4 in line model. I own the Wessex Bombino model Eb. It...
