    The answer to your first question is yes, mostly. The length of the horn and the fingerings are like a 3-valve F tuba (that is non-compensating), but it is a lot stuffier. By having to play via the...

    Yes. Metal/alloy and thickness both matter. When I was working with Sterling Instruments we experimented with different bells. I liked the heavier metal with more copper in the mix (red brass, which...

    Ok, then how about Till There Was You from the Music Man? The crowd should know it, and the band might have a Music Man arrangement with this song in it. Just have the melody instruments lay out for...

    I agree with the 2 suggestions above. Either a used compensating instrument or the new Wessex will satisfy you better if you have been playing a Besson (especially a Sovereign).

    I THINK that horn is designed to be more fully conical, except for the draw-legs on the main tuning slide. There are no slides on the valve tubes as far as I can see. That was an intriguing idea to...

    Yeah, in this case I think the eBay offer is not good. I'd look at either of these for the free shipping. Comes out cheaper in the end.

    This horn has short-action valves and 2 curved bells with gold wash inside. Condition looks to be very nice. No case is included. The really good news is that the valves look nearly perfect (except...

    Good example. On trombone I would use 6th for Eb for a lip trill, maybe, but on trombone the goal is to find the shortest path. So a short 2nd for high G is logical, since you can place the slide...

    Trombone and euphonium seem like a natural double, but there are important differences.

    Many trombonists I've heard tend to soft-tongue during slurs as they would on trombone. Don't!
