    A compensating euphonium weighs 9-10 pounds. To me that doesnít seem enough to need compensation.

    I have Rondo on cassette somewhere in my house. I was blown away by the Rondo for Trumpet. Pantomine is on that record as well. You may be thinking of Nessun Dorma as The Swan is not on Rondo. I'd...

    I first met Steven in the early1990íd when he was the guest euphonium artist at the Leonard Falcone International Euphonium/Tuba Festival. I had never heard a player with that much technique and...

    The leadpipe goes into the first valve. Can you snake it from the valve port and push it out the leadpipe? Or push it thru the leadpipe and out the valve?

    I use this device on mine, mainly to keep the finger button from digging into the side of the case. Not sure if this would even happen without the guard. I love that thereís no valve lock on the horn...

    The Quick Horn Rinse Lap Pad is the best Iíve found. It has a grippy surface and the height is adjustable.

    I assume the Wessex compensating Baritone compensates for the sharp C and Cb concert pitches. A 4th valve on a compensating horn does the same but also allows the pedal octaves which are for the moot...

    If you want to playbaritone in a brass band you need a real British style baritone. There is no substitute. As far as brands, I am not nearly as well versed as others but there are many threads on...

    Sorry but Iím confused. Iíve always played the published tuba/piano transcription. It works fine but certain passages may be easier an octave higher. The pedal sections are playable on a compensating...
  11. Willson 2900S. Time for a new version?

    The Willson 2900 is an iconic euphonium which for years has been the standard for concert band use. Until relatively recently there has been little direct competition but now the Shires Q41, Adams E2...

    Only a theory but it could be when we put more air though a horn and rely more on the diaphragm than the embouchure we have better control over intonation. Changing to a larger mouthpiece forces the...

    Intonation on my E3 with SS bell is easily the best of any horn Iíve played. I had mine built with the tuning slide shortened a bit. The 1st and 2nd valve combinations in the treble clef staff are...

    Not answering your question directly but there are much better compensating horns that come with mouthpieces for not a lot more these days. A used Wessex Dolce might be in the $1100.00 range.

    I am under the impression that Prestige models are all made in Germany and each is tested by Steven Mead or other professional players.

    The Bonna case is IMO a hybrid. It's a gig bag with a hard shell inside. Considerably heavier than a traditional cordura gig bag but still easily carried as a back pack. Other than the weight, best...

    I can only tell you how I would react to that scenario. I would buy the best horn I could afford. For many in England that is Besson both for the reasons you describe and for how they sound.
