    Just saying, in case this helps anyone on a tight budget: the mp that comes with the JP274 IS a DW 4AL for all practical purposes. It would take laboratory grade measuring instruments to find the...

    Denis Wick Practice Mute Review

    As we low brass musicians well know, the bigger the horn, the more brass that goes into making it. All other things being equal (when they are) a Euphonium will cost more than a Trumpet. So also will...

    Alrighty then, a 4AL it is. I got the last one Dillon Music had (via Amazon). A number of retailers are sold out of this model. My Denis Wick practice mute arrived today. Geez Louise no one ever...

    OEM Mouthpiece, yay or nay?

    I'm cruising into the end of my 2nd week with my JP274. I had budgeted for a mouthpiece to go with it, but I couldn't think of anything. The dealer suggested doing nothing and using the OEM...

    Bass clef music for Euphonium (and Trombone) is not transposed. It is the same as 'concert pitch'. This question has actually come up a number of times on the forum, and a number of posters,...

    That doesn't really look any different from before. I didn't think it had anything to do with the felts anyway. To me it looks like the springs are too weak, just like another poster wondered. This...

    I like 'new' as well, so it's worth mentioning ... there is a 'road less traveled' alternative to the Wessex 'Sinfonico' in much the same way as there is a less popular (though that is changing)...

    OMG. If this was April I would say the o.p. is having us on. That is truly bizarre. Just saying, the JP274 is $1K cheaper and doesn't have this problem :-) All the valves do this? They did this right...

    Hmmm. "Bouncy"? I have a new JP horn as well. I haven't noticed anything particular about the valves. To me they just seem about what valves should feel like. Full disclosure, this is my first ever...

    Yay, another JP274 in the house. We really should start a registry thread. "Concert A" (440hz) is the pitch given to tune all the strings and woodwinds. I'm pretty sure the tuning note for a Concert...

    FWIW, I am new to Euphonium, but not to brass instruments. Tuning is only partly in the instrument. Tuner apps are a blessing and a curse. No one obsessed about 20 or 30 cents either way on a note...

    Well, she's here. I wasn't looking for flaws, I wasn't not looking for flaws, but I haven't found any flaws. Not one. I am well pleased. I can't (yet) play Euphonium but by using the 4th valve lock,...

    Thanks so much for this information. I imagine that the Arban method for Trumpet or Cornet will not have fingerings that include the 4th valve. Are there any methods (in either clef) that do?

    First Steps

    So my JP274 is wending its way all the way across the country to the West Coast. I only own music for Horn in F, so I will have to build an entirely new library from scratch.

    I would like to put...
