    Saw an SKB case on EBay for what I think is a good price. I don't know if your horn would fit inside it, but it is a place to start looking. ...

    "French horns? Where?!" I enjoyed hearing this recording, but it seems mis-titled. I am left with the question - where? I saw a single french horn on the far left of the frame for The Good, The...

    More thoughts about composer intent and "editting"

    Another amateur chiming in here. I agree that composer intent should be carefully considered when making "edits" to any particular piece of music (or any kind of "artwork" for that matter). ...

    So Mike, a further question if I may. I have not sprung for the tablet yet. But I did get a brand spankin' new smart phone. I was wondering if you (or anyone else on the forum, for that matter)...

    If the group were to contribute, I would put something in the communal pot. Is there anyone in the group who knows the family personally and could deliver it to them?

    Digital Music Tools & Software

    So is Overture a more recent or an older version of the Dolce? I am guessing older. Which "generation" of production are we currently in?

    I've been wondering about Overture versus Dolce. They seem to have the same model number, but the image carved on the bell is rather different. It isn't that this is one of the early Dolce's with a...

    Spkissane - Aha! I thought that it looked like Wessex's "baby euphonium." Interesting looking. I found the youtube sound clips to hear what it sounded like.

    In any case, best of luck with the...

    Is that you and your Geneva in your avatar picture? It is an interesting looking horn, either way. I wish that we could see more of it. In particular, I would want to compare it to the Wessex Maly...

    No surprise that most of these are percussion.

    But my favorite was probably the glass harmonica, a la Mesmer. A great historic instrument and musical idea.

    I was referring to the placement of the valve cluster, not the style of the bell. Though that also has a "upright" or "front" orientation choice, as you pointed out. In instruments with the valves...

    3 + 1 vs. 4 Inline (valves)

    This is a brand question, or I think that at least part of it is.

    Euphoniums tend to come in two flavors. The valves are arranged in a 3 + 1 configuration, or in a 4 inline configuration. I have...
  20. Not the BR140, but close
