    Depending on your equipment, it's going to be a 5th position for Gb (no valve). Try not to lip it into tune, use your slide. Get out the Rochut book 1, and start playing them down an octave, using...

    If you don't have that wrench, grab a thick cloth, I use a microfiber, wrap it around the cap, and gently try turning the cap with a loose set of pliers. Be careful.

    It will also fit a Hirsbrunner euphonium with a medium screw in receiver. If you need the receiver, give Custom music a call.

    Looks like it's a vintage 1984. Call Custom and get the receivers, if it doesn't come with all 3. I really like the medium one for these horns. Glad to see it went to a good home, and hopefully it...

    Well, I don't play a string, or a double reed instrument. And it only gets worse from here, say I wanted to try out a Besson, Geneva, or a Yamaha. I'd be lucky if a Yamaha was stocked locally. How...

    As a suggestion, you might contact Dan Oberloh out in Seattle. Just because he can fabricate just about anything on a horn. I've seen his work on valve caps etc, for vintage Besson horns.

    But I...

    Oberloh is closed on Monday. Brass fix is a great group to do business with. While you're at it, ask Dan to fabricate some nylon valve guides for that horn.

    GW could turn down that shank for an Olds. I know exactly what you mean by the taper. I've got a Olds P22 Bass. Same issue, so I've turned down a Kelly 1 1/2. Have you talked to Webster about it?

    New springs won't do much if the guides are bad. The best solution to cover your bases would be to clean the valves/casings, new bumpers/washers, springs, and check those guides. If it is the guides,...
