    I did this two years ago, and there were two options: 1) take the full amount in a single year, or 2) depreciate over 5 years. I chose the single year option. 90% of the music work I do is reported...

    I'll third the opinion on the Yamaha 321 as a trombonist's double. Trombone is/was my main ax, but I've played tenor horn/tuba on Mahler 7, Don Quixote, and The Planets. I've even been lucky enough...

    Just a historical reference on that first strange chord pickup that starts the opening fanfare of the suite: Burden was the first to produce a medley of the Star Wars music, and had access to...

    All the best, Martin! I worked for a dialysis company for many years, and news of a transplant was always good to hear. Dialysis centers are sad places, no one is happy to be there, and very few ever...

    Sorry to hear of your difficulties Dave, sore chops for whatever reason are a vexation.

    Just a side note on the topic of canker sores.... I suffered with them for many years, and found that taking...

    Totally agree on the baritone (great) and bass trumpet (meh). Haven't played the tenorhorn, though I have played another JinBao tenorhorn for a few minutes that I thought was pretty good. The Wessex...

    FWIW - Weiner Music has Schilke mouthpieces mouthpieces for less than most other places I've seen. They have a new 52E2 in silver for $74.

    Assuming it's the same 4Y that they were shipping about a year ago, I didn't care much for it. It reminded me of a French Horn mouthpiece on steroids. Big, like a euph piece, but really deep funnel...

    It does not attach to either the horn or the player. But, I suppose that it could be altered by putting a couple of cuts in the bottom of the black cover and running some type of velcro belt through...

    Just got around to watching a Q&A with Steve Shires from a few weeks ago. He announced that they are working on a prototype euphonium, but no date for it yet.

    If your school has the dough, I think Alexander would be the way to go. Dillon has it listed for about $4900, though I'm sure it's a special order.

    The new Yamaha Silent Brass is excellent, and is a major upgrade to the older version's electronics. It provides decent results even when not using the electronics module.

    Protec makes a 3-mouthpiece pouch for trombone/saxophone mouthpieces that I use to keep my mouthpieces in a gig bag/case. They are fairly well padded, and I find they protect well from mild abuse,...

    I know your budget is limited, but the three choices you've listed are little, if any, better than what you currently have. Schillers can be OK, but quality is really hit and miss. For $200-$300 more...

    Definitely CSO, I think from a Great Performances broadcast in October 2011. I see Jay Friedman and Charlie Vernon, so I'm 99.9% sure that's Michael Mulcahy on Euphonium. Really great sound, and...
