    That is one bizarro horn for sure. The upper bow appears soldered to the bell, how strange is that!? This horn conjures up thoughts of Dr. Frankenstein and the mutant euphonium/baritone!!! There...

    Not that I can say anything more complimentary than has already been said, but I too, received a signed CD from Gary yesterday, and I almost cannot believe that someone could possibly play what he...

    Nice video, very useful, in spite of that darn metronome going off the whole time you are talking. Just kidding, sort of. Probably a little case of easy irritability and cabin fever after all these...

    I think Eb compensating tuba would work fine for most wind ensemble, brass quintet, brass band, German band, jazz and other situations. I have a 4 valve compensating Eb tuba that I bought from...

    Doug - a great read, and I understand you completely I think. I am sort of a perfectionist, so I make life for myself difficult at times. But I enjoy the journey.

    Just before I auditioned for The U.S. Army Band in early 1971, I was at the University of New Mexico in Albuquerque. I played quite a bit with Fred Dart and picked his brain on auditioning in the...

    Ah, but that is the fun of the whole thing. Always trying new and different things or different approaches or in this case, different turns of your receiver. I may experiment with it again in the...

    I think we should try to find an appropriate t-shirt with the mantra "Play Until You Drop"! I would buy one of those. I suppose there could also be one that says "Play Until Somebody Tells You to...

    I would suggest that most players would love to have your "diminished" skills!!! But I do know what you mean. I think I probably played technically (at least valve movement) better (cleaner and...

    I am in the 2-3 turns out position as well. I just gave my Adams a thorough bath yesterday and made sure to move the barrel so it wouldn't get frozen in place. I think I put a little grease on the...
