  1. Review of The Brass Player's Cookbook

    I was one of the 57 brass players who donated articles to "The Brass Players Cookbook." All brass instruments are covered, of course, and it is an easy read with some fine advice! Some articles are...

    There is no manufacturing definition of a "pro" horn that I am aware of. In some cases, company XYZ would say their top models are pro horns, regardless of price point. In the case of Adams, they...

    Jonathan's comments are right on! FYI, I'm copying his last post to a new thread in the General Discussion... Category so we can talk about the concept of a "pro" horn, regardless of brand/type.

    I have managed to avoid flying with my horn for several years, but no doubt I'll need to at some point. I have a Bonna case I could check, and I have a Cronkhite gig bag I could try to carry on....

    From a Count Basie Special??

    Here are a couple clips from the NPR special "Count Basie - Through His Own Eyes". This is talking about the very early day of Basie. You just never know where these horns will show up!

    Welcome to the forum!

    John's advice is good. One other factor is whether you will always have a microphone. If not, the King might be better because it is available with a forward-firing bell as...

    My own measurements would say that my E3 (probably the E1/2 as well) has a 16mm 4th bore on both sides. That is interesting to me because I think my Virtuoso used 15mm for the main bore, 16 for...

    I'll ask Adams, but I'm guessing the 16mm bore size is for the first part of the 4th valve loop. There are usually 3 measurements: main bore, early compensating loop, 4th valve main loop. Adams' site...

    It's a hard instrument to categorize. I've only played the prototype so far, so I can't comment on the production model. My best guess is that it is a clear step up from the Dolce level. As Alex said...

    I suspect it will be a fairly fix - probably the short leg of the slide needs to be expanded slightly. But be aware that there are very few players who try to play while this slide is partway out....

    I had neglected to check the UK price, so I see what you mean. So I have to retract my statement that it matched your goal in that way. It's still about the best bet, though.

    Welcome to the forum!



    You should read through the Euph Brands section to see about Wessex and JP Sterling euphoniums. That would suggest possible new horns in the range from 1200-3000.
