    These are two radically different mouthpieces. The SM3U is a wide/deep mouthpiece that is significantly larger in rim diameter (26.4mm) than the 51D (25.55mm). The 51D plays smaller though it has a...

    As long as both of them are medium shank, they are essentially the same horn produced at the same facility to the same acoustic spec. The only difference was valve caps, finger buttons, and...

    To add to Dave Werden's list of mouthpieces, Wick makes a 4AY (similar to 4AL and 4AM but small shank). This is what I use on a Yamaha 321, but it is not a beginners mouthpiece. Also, the Yamaha 48...

    To be honest, in general, the mouthpiece will be a pretty significant determining factor. When I play a Yamaha 321 with a Wick 4AY, I sound pretty "big" and would not feel bad about playing in any...

    David Bandman played a 321 exclusively until he purchased a Besson 2051 (small bell) Prestige. I know he uses a small mouthpiece (Bach 7 to 12) on the 321 and am not sure what he uses on the 2051.

    Dean,

    Wagner tubas are designed to be played by french horn players. The valves are left handed and the lead pip is VERY skinny. Is the horn in the picture left or right handed. If it is right...

    The serial number for this horn (551178) indicates this is definitely a 1971-1974 instrument, likely 1972 or 1973 but definitely not 1950s. It could well be a large shank horn from the factory. I...
