    Smart Phone Tuner

    I got tired of the advertising with the free g-string tuner, so I downloaded the 4 dollar "Cleartune" tuner for the Android platform. I love it! It works great!

    P.E.T.E.

    I bought one last year, got bored with it and gave it to my son. He got bored with it and now it is in a drawer with a host of mouthpieces. I wish brass was a precious metal, I would be rich.

    If guys like this keep forcing the issue, then I think there will eventually be more performance venues for the euphonium. The Big Band thing is cool!

    Help educate me!

    As for slotting, break out your tuner. Play different passages and notes with your eyes closed. Stop on a note, open your eyes and look at the tuner. Where are you on the note? Are you 5 or 10 cents...

    Help educate me!

    I don't think you would neccesarily call the Holton a stencil horn as it is understood on these forums. I think the Holton would be called a clone. The Weril 980 is also a clone of the Yamaha 321...

    Water Catcher

    Very cool looking device, nice work, but I think this is a pretty yucky topic.

    I would rather let me pants and horn catch the spit than to have to handle that thing after a rehearsal..

    Valve Problem

    One other thing to think about is your hand and finger position. I can make any valve on any horn stick by pushing against it laterally instead of straight up and down. This could be an even bigger...

  18. Grime Gutter / Water Catcher (Schiller Elite)

    I am not sure what all the hoopla is about a grime catcher. I have never used one. What does it do? My horn doesn't leak out of the valves very often unless I put too much oil on.

    I don't think I...

    Mouthpieces What size?

    I had one of those horns. It is a four valve non compensating horn. It is a large shank so you will have many choices in mouthpieces.

    At a minimum, stick with the 6.5 AL until you get used to it....

    SM3 vs SM3U

    Steven Mead says the internals are identical between the ultra and the standard SM series. The difference is in the mass on the outside of the mouthpiece if that makes sense.

    Pencil Excersize ?

    I bought a PETE last year. I tried it for awhile on my way to work and back. I got tired of it fairly quickly and PETE it away in a drawer somewhere with my mouthpiece collection.
