    You don't get a super huge amount of water in there and because of the larger bore at that part of the instrument you have to get a lot of accumulation before it becomes a gurgle. For me, this is...

    I never had a problem with slides on the 2056 but the bottom valve caps are really tough!!

    No. The 956 also has a weird little U-turn bend in the fourth valve loop, but if I am remembering correctly it has a water key there already. It's been a while since I played one and couldn't find...

    right at the bottom of the second loop. never happened to me often enough that I felt like I needed to add a water key, but under some conditions it does tend to collect there.

    I don't think he means feel on your face. The 101 size is a measure of the diameter of the rim. That's what you "feel" when you put the mouthpiece up to your face. A EUPH 101 is exactly the same...

    Is that Doug's old one? Looks really nice. I just don't know what I'd ever do with such a thing. It'd be fun to mess around with, but I can't see ever using it anywhere.

    formerly ;)

    in my experience, euphonium players doubling on tenor horn get a really great sound on that instrument!

    Lots of people prefer yellow brass. Euphonium is dark enough as it is, it's nice to get that clarity of tone and articulation that a yellow brass bell brings to the table. But I suppose it may depend...

    it's a special model with gold-tinted lacquer and no stud brace holding the leadpipe midway, so more like a sovereign from that perspective.

    "sweetheart of a guy"?? absolutely not.

    yeah, Sheona White has one of the darkest sounds around on tenorhorn. It can be done with the relatively small TH mouthpiece. It's all about the warm air, relaxed embouchure, etc.
