    It doesn't surprise me that Willson is the same as Adams and Sterling since there is some shared heritage between Willson and Bauerfeind as well. I am surprised that the Hirsbrunner on the list is...

    It looks like the space between the pistons is more significant than the actual bore size.

    What's the center-to-center distance between the first and third valves on the Shires valve block? It looks really far apart. I notice on Bente Illevold's social media videos her third finger is not...

    No, I'm not aware of any instruments that have nickel plated slide tubes. Nickel plating is sometimes used on the cores of piston and rotary valves, but not on slide tubes.

    yep, the G in the staff is my biggest intonation complaint with my E3. I'm pretty used to using third valve on that note with my baritone, but I still prefer using 1+2+half trigger.

    I believe what happened here is the lacquer developed pinholes which allowed air and perhaps other corrosive vapors underneath the lacquer to create these spots. You'd have to strip the lacquer off...

    mine is pretty plain. I'm not a fan of engraving. I ordered it with the tuning trigger and without the AGR. I got some fancy green color fake abalone inlays in the finger buttons. Other than that,...

    The baritone is still a conical instrument, it's just a different ratio of conical to cylindrical than euphonium, and doesn't get as big. It's a saxhorn.

    But here's the real muddying of the...

    It's also not unheard of to see British-style baritones being used as 3/4 size euphoniums for beginners, so there is some validity to your assumption.

    So, there's some confusion around the terms baritone and euphonium.

    In England there are two separate instruments, baritone and euphonium. Your Besson is a baritone. It fulfills a different role...

    Looks like a (full size) New Standard baritone. The serial number would put it somewhere in the early 1970s. This was their top model baritone at the time, until the introduction of the Sovereign in...
