    To me, that's the biggest problem with Wessex - no local warrantee shop, unless you consider Chicago local. If you have to send something back, that's an expense. At least JP has local(ish) shops....

    Yeah, I got a Festivo, (my 6th wessex - Dolce, Bombino Eb tuba, Urbie trombone, prototype trombone, super tenor trombone), and immediately I knew there was a problem with any compensated combination...

    I'm a bit younger, but I had the same issue about a year ago. I was terrified that (at 56) age was going to start catching up with me. For me, it started at the beginning of notes, and it lasted for...

    In my quintet, our tuba players have both used Eb, also in the small orchestra I play with. One of the pro quintets in the area uses a big Yamaha F. Sam Pilafian and Dallenbach used C most of the...

    Yeah, there are 2b and 3b combos that include a slide and a valve section. There is a Conn 5G, which is a valve trombone, and the 6H is it's slide cousin, so the slide/valve section are...

    I'm biased, as a trombone player. I think any time a euph player can pick up trombone, it's an improvement. There are more opportunities on trombone. A lot of the skills are transferable. The slide...

    I was going to suggest that the role of the Principal Euphonist was to point out all the mistakes made by the second baritone player, but I see I'm in the wrong thread...:rolleyes:

    It sounds like of that selection, the JP would be the one to get. I've owned the Wessex Dolce and the Festivo. I prefer the Festivo for the valve arrangement. I can say that the finish on the Wessex...

    I have switched a lot of mouthpieces in "the quest", but I think I've landed finally. I'm primarily a tenor trombone player, so initially figuring out what the euphonium was supposed to sound and...

    FS: Euph and tuba mouthpieces

    I have some euph and tuba mouthpieces available. The original listing with pictures and prices is on the trombone site link at the bottom. These are the pieces:

    Oh, but they're doing it wrong. Trombones in FRONT! And marching with traditional French horns is one thing, but marching in a pool with French horns is unheard of here in the US. And maybe I'm...

    Interestingly, I did settle on a smaller mouthpiece with this than I would usually use for this bore (0.515) on a regular trombone.

    I don't think the sound is particularly unfocused, so maybe the...

    Effect of worn valves

    I have an Olds flugabone, which plays nice enough, but the sound is very dark and it doesn't play as loud as other instruments. It's technically called a "marching trombone", but wouldn't a marching...

    I've got a Conn 24i that works as is, but could use some care. 4V in front with tuning mechanism for main slide, bell forward, removable bell, hard case. Takes a small shank trombone mouthpiece.

    That bit about the French C tuba is interesting. Do you have a recording of a skilled player showing the range? Also, can you explain how you use the 6 valve arrangement?

    Thanks for all the responses. Yeah, the Jim Self Jimbasso is exactly what I'm looking for. Low C and B are definite needs. So a 4 valve in F or 5 valve in Bb. But the more valves the weirder the...

    Bass Baritonium ???

    I'm trying to start a project. I want to create something between a baritone horn and a bass trombone. The need for this is that the physical requirements of the bass trombone are wearing on me, and...

    Yeah, that's some genre benders right there. They even worked in a Schagerl Wunderhorn or something like it.

    Every time I try something and then come back and play it later, I usually have a different impression the second time around. It might be because I play it up against other horns, or with other...

    You should try to use a 3D scanner to collect data on mouthpieces you like. If you don't have access to 3D scan, you can try taking measurements with a set of calipers. This will likely turn out...

    I'm an older return player as well. I had an accident where I nearly drowned in a freezing lake, which I feel damaged my lungs, so I've been fighting the diminished capacity thing as well. I'm mostly...

    I like these comparisons. To me, a trombone player, the difference was pretty clear. The first horn sounds clearer, and thus better. The second horn is very dark, which I imagine is good in some...

    I started on a rented King 605 trombone. I can still remember the new smell and my amazement at the case and how the thing went together.
