    I've been fully digital for music reading for about 2.5 years at this point. I use the 12.9" iPad pro, as it's approximately the same size as a standard 8.5x11" sheet of paper.

    I did get a weird second chance offer from eBay, but the final price was $1900 plus $200 shipping, which ends up at the $2100 figure you saw.

    I bought this horn for $1900 plus shipping. I figured I can’t go
    Wrong.

    It does seem heavier than other horns of this era I’ve played.

    The valve caps/buttons and some slides appear to have...

    Let me clarify - I wasn't as clear as I could have been.

    On both horns, with the AGR out 5.5 turns, the short valve set seems to have SLIGHTLY more backpressure. I came in 1 turn to 4.5 on the...

    New E3 with Short Valves

    A couple years ago, I bought an E3 with SS bell and trigger. It's a great horn! After spending time on Sterling, Miraphone, Willson, and Besson, I felt I had found the horn I wanted, both in terms...

    All kidding aside, I recently tried the wedge...

    The Tank flight case

    Has anyone had experience with "The Tank" flight cases? I'm considering buying one but I'd love to get some feedback.

    I’ve got an old new standard from the late 60s/early 70s. Maybe I’ll put that in a Cronkhite bag and see how it goes. I wouldn’t be heartbroken if that horn was damaged the way I would with my E3.
  11. Euphoninum rental - Los Angeles area

    I'm traveling for work next week, and I'd like to rent a horn for the week while I'm out there so I can continue practicing.

    I wanted to take my E3 with me, but it was going to cost an extra $800...

    Interesting - I also had my hand brace come off on that side on my E3. I wonder if Adams just goes light on the hand brace solder.

    I feel itís small, and sounds significantly brighter than any of the rest of the SM series. It also lacks core of sound for me.

    I played an SM4X and felt the rim was sharper than I liked.

    I moved to the DC3 and really liked the rim contour, but felt the throat was small, and I couldnít use air the way I prefer.

    I know you werenít asking me, but Iíll interject.

    I play on the K&G 3.5, and I came from both a SM3X and SM4X.

    I find the K&G 3.5 to feel similar in size to the SM4X, with the same openness,...
