    I can't speak to the age factor, but I will say that playing trumpet only occasionally is more likely to be frustrating than fun. As someone who has doubled on both regularly for the past decade or...

    The picture on the Baltimore Brass site shows an oval 5-valve Bariton. The 11.25" bell measurement and curved linkage arms would indicate that it's an early 54L. Miraphone currently makes a 5-valve...

    When I've learned, it was using the exaggeration of "ta" in which some air pressure is built up ahead of the consonant. In the strictest sense, it's the extra air at the start of the attack that...

    Out of curiosity, I've been reading Carl Kleinstuber's written dissertation. His argument, in short, is that the unique color of the French tuba should be preserved so that the intent of French...

    My thinking is along a similar line. The analogy I was going to use was a Swiss Army Knife. I've got one that has a knife blade, small wood saw, and scissors among other things. In a pinch, those are...

    I wonder if Adams is trying to make inroads on the market for Yamaha 321s? With this being free blowing, it seems like a good target market would pro trombonists doubling on euphonium.

    The "rumble strip" effect you mention is called a double buzz. It's what happens when your embouchure is trying to produce a pitch between a pair that the instrument will resonate at.

    The exercise...

    Cynically, a "pro horn" is what a non-professional buys when he wants the horn to do the work for him. :rolleyes:

    As a concept it was going to get done sooner or later. The particulars of the arrangement really didn't engage me. A lot of the interest that Sousa wrote into the...

    I can personally vouch for The Horn Guys and Bridgepoint.

    The Horn Guys is where I bought my Kanstul euphonium. Great service, they let me try instruments for 4 hours, and they were listening to...

    If you use a lot of pressure, you're going to want to stay away from the SM Ultra and Ultra-X mouthpieces. They have a sharp inner rim.

    With that said, it sounds like you might want to experiment...

    John's suggestions are fantastic. Definitely worth trying.

    The reason I brought up singing is that it's a way to take out the technical aspect of the euphonium. If you do better with the pulse...

    I'm out in California, so not a buyer for this one. But, how did you like the horn? I do a LOT of German music. A Kaiserbariton would be nice to have on hand.
