    I'm suspicious. Not of fraud, necessarily, but of the experience one might have buying from them. As you see, it's been 18 months since the question was posted and there is no response. I checked on...

    Great suggestions from Doug. I personally like the 5G, but if the SM5 seemed to large I was not sure if this might as well.

    I forgot that Wick made a 6BL. I used a 4BL for a couple years to get...

    Welcome to the forum!

    The fundamental open is Bb below the second ledger line beneath the bass clef. We have the valves to add another major 7th below that yet. But I have played below that with false tones, down to a G...

    This is a very fine used Sovereign, being sold by the son-in-law of the original owner. A case shown looks an original Besson case. This is the same model I played before switching to Sterling, and...
  12. Sticky: FS: UPDATE: BID AUCTION - York 3-Valve Euphonium in Satin Silver - Nice Condition

    This is estimated to have been made in 1920 and has slides to adjust from high pitch to low pitch. The horn is in great shape from what I can see and it's rather beautiful looking. It has gold wash...

    I should copy and paste what Rick just said, because he nailed it for me. I'm not an expert, either.
