    Same here. The 1st and 2nd valve compensating loops will dump their water BACK into the 4th valve loop when using 1-4 and 2-4 combinations. The third valve comp slide may accumulate a little bit of...

    I agree with Dave. These horns (which I played as well) shipped with a medium-to-small shank adapter and an absolutely horrid Besson 10 medium shank mouthpiece. I used the adapter and my Bach 6 1/2...

    That looks more like an Eb Tuba. The valve slides are too long to be euphonium.

    Aha, well I have a 2009 Sterling Virtuoso, one of the last of the Bauerfeind horns. It is in near perfect shape, though I have had some service and mods on it. While in the UK at the Sterling shop...

    Gianfranco,

    Serial number records for #86327x show this was manufactured in later 1998 or early 1999. As all 967s do, it would have a 12" bell.

    JHarris...all good points.

    BTW, I am 70 years old and I have been playing euphonium for 61 years. My hearing is non-existent above about 2kHz - 2.5kHz and has been that way since my mid-20s. Not...

    Regarding mouthpiece choices, I stuck with the 4AL because I have the most experience with it and wanted to control the variables in my evaluation. Given more time, I would worked with various...

    I will answer this a bit. The answer is no. The E2 is a very heavy horn much like a Miraphone 5050. With its 11" bell, the Sinfonico does not sound like an Adams (to me) at all. I would consider...

    Guido,

    I am next in line. Since most of us are playing in ensembles that are meeting, we are using the horn in rehearsal and performance and holding on to it for longer than we did with the ACB...

    Vito,

    Great write up. I want to say that I REALLY like your playing. You sound fantastic. I haven't listened all the way through the Golland piece, but the Stevens is magnificent! Keep playing the...

    Gary,

    I use Spitballs, QHR, and disassembly with swabs to do a full home cleaning on my horns. Once or twice a year. Yup valves, slides and the whole thing.

    Dave,

    Don't forget the infamous concert B-natural in the slow intro section of Pantomime. I must admit, my 2007 Prestige 2051-2 had a miserable C# (B-nat). You learn to deal with it, My Sterling...
