    Yes, thanks to Rick for his hard work rounding these up! Dennis, I find that listening carefully and with your heart can be an extremely valuable aid to your playing, once you get back to the horn.

    I find the suite works pretty well for euphonium quartet! Here is the 3rd movement with me, me, me, and me playing.

    You are correct about me liking it! The combination of electric guitar and euphonium works quite well. I've never had the chance to try it.

    I just looked, and I have done a few dozen pop-ish songs...

    On switching mouthpieces between solo/ensemble, I agree with John. For most people that is not the best approach. An all-around mouthpiece is better.

    Good project! One should be comfortable in both clefs, even though most of us have a preference for one or the other.

    I think you would like having the new bass clef Arban book:

    You have a tough job ahead! I have yet to find a quick & easy way to dependably choose a mouthpiece. Having said that, I think there are two paths:

  13. Sticky: FS: Conn 14-i Lacquer 3-Valve Euphonium - BARGAIN

    Please look this over - the only "interesting" damage I see is the back of the bell. That should be easy to fix if you are so inclined. There some other minor dents, but otherwise the horn looks to...

    Congratulations on winning the horn!

    The leadpipe probably just needs to be re-plated. A good repair shop could remove it; then it might need to be sent out for plating.

    As far as dent work,...
  18. FS: Willson 2975 4-Front-Valve Compensating Euphonium

    VERY fine 2975 just listed. I see nothing wrong with the appearance. It comes with a modified hard case that has wheels. The original medium-shank receiver has been replaced with a large size. It...

    That might make me hesitate as well. However, the price is pretty low, and it MIGHT play fine. My main concern is the large patch of plating damage that is right alongside a port.

    I think most players try to evoke a solemn mood and play according to their sense of that. In general, the Army is the authority on such matters, and their sound sample has vibrato:
