    I also use a towel on the ground, and whenever I need to pull slides to empty them I just pour them into the sink.

    Unrelated to the oils, but that is a really cool looking tenor horn Dave!

    Back to the topic at hand, I recently noticed some gunky buildup in the tuning slides of my New Standard using Blue Juice...

    There is something about the Doug Elliott mouthpieces that I have been wondering about as I read this thread. I play on a DE EUPH series mouthpiece but have never used any of his other trombone...

    Sara, reading your description it sounds like a really cool idea, I hope you are able to find someone! Also, it sounds a lot like you are giving your euphonium a tattoo, which I guess in many ways...

    Cool, let us know how you like it. I have heard that Yamaha mouthpieces are nice, but never tried one myself.

    I assume by "outgrown" you mean that the 48L feels small on your face and you may even feel limited with the types of sound you can make with the mouthpiece. Feel free to correct if that is wrong.

    That is a good question, I really have no idea. I have heard people say that, but personally I have only heard it in context of trumpet players so my assumption has been that it is more applicable to...

    Thank for sharing this story Larry. I'm really glad to hear that picking up the euphonium again and joining some groups has had such an impact in your life.

    That is a very well written and enjoyable explanation of all the variables we can change on our horns. Except for mouthpieces I haven't played around with any of the other "knobs" available to us,...

    I don't have any direct experience comparing the 4AL to the SM4, but I did spend a lot of time switching between a 3AL and SM3U. My experience was that the SM3U felt a little smaller on the face, and...

    I will cast my vote for the Steven Mead travel mute that Wick makes. I find the sound reduction pretty good, the sound in your ear isn't too bad, and it is great that it fits inside the bell for easy...

    Something that I thought of that might take a little bit of transposing parts depending on the level of whoever is playing, is that even just picking a few hymns out of the hymnal and playing the...
