    Hi all,

    I have two data points. Not surprisingly, since Adams horns use Bauerfeind valves as does my 11 year old Sterling, they are both virtually the same, center to center.

    Not rust. Just garden variety corrosion. The green stuff on the inside is normal. The brown on the outside of the slide is also normal for a wear spot. Many horns (like Besson, Sterling, etc.) have...

    I might add that there is no way I would get a trigger for this horn. One of the main reasons I bought it is to have a lighter (much) weight horn than my Sterling due to my advancing tendonitis in...

    John,

    Many thanks. Just to note that I already have "RUBY" finger buttons (red "quartz-like" inserts). I really like your horn and the engraving. I would skip a trigger. The only sharp notes a...

    Customizing my Adams E3

    Hi folks,

    As many of you know, I have an Adams E3 prototype .70mm yellow brass bell and short action top sprung valves. Aside from the valveset, my horn is a plain vanilla E3 in brushed...

    I always used Hetman #1 on the Connstellation. The valves on the particular horn I had were pretty tight, the 1st valve in particular after I had it replated. Hetman #1 is a bit thicker than Blue...

    2008 Sterling Virtuoso Intonation

    I have not charted intonation on my Virtuoso (300 mm bell). However, it is very similar to what Dave has charted, so see what he posted in his tuning charts. I practice my daily routine using a...

    Just one more reply. The new Sterling Virtuoso's are in stock at Baltimore Brass and are available for $6,295 (silver plated with trigger). This is DEFINITELY on the warm side.

    And, of course, as my good friend Don knows, I want to play with the British sound, so the Sterling just amplifies the sound I hear in my head!

    No. All Sterlings will tend to exhibit intonation tendencies similar but perhaps slightly better than a Besson (Sovereign or Prestige). Use of the trigger is recommended.

    I do not know what the difference between the HBS378 and HBS479 are. This horn has the screw in receiver, so you can use small, medium or large shank mouthpieces. I am pretty certain that the 1st...

    The 6BS is an excellent baritone mouthpiece. I believe this is what Katrina Marzella uses. It is my personal 2nd choice after the Bach 5G.

    Only way to tell is by the model number inside the bell down near the joint with the bottom bow. A 1065 is standard weight bell. A 1065H has a heavy bell.

    Not a huge difference between the two....

    Wendy,

    VERY nice looking instrument. This horn definitely would be significantly superior to any JP374/JP374 horn.

    It is a pretty recent instrument with the current (new) style trigger design...

    I spoke with Paul Riggett and with Baltimore Brass this last Friday (both). They have three Sterlings sent out by Paul about 2 weeks ago. Two "regular" Virtuoso's (1065) and a heavy bell (1065H).
