    I agree with Barry's post - check with Doug Elliott. But that is not totally compatible with your desire for a low-price solution. On the other hand, Doug lets you return pieces if they are not quite...

    From your description I'm guessing the kid's horn is nickel plated, which is cheaper and generally not as good as a silver finish.

    Yes, that is correct. 1-2-3 are all the same.

    Here is a photo of the springs in my loaner Adams. The standard Adams springs will let the valve guide rest on the top of the cylinder. As you can...

    I think that means a gold-alloy brass, which has more copper. I suspect I would like that one, but I have not tried it.

    Yes, they do. That's where I got the "light" set I used on a loaner E3 I had. Shipping was pretty quick, and I don't recall being shocked at the price.

    Welcome to the forum, and good luck with the sale of your horn! Lacquered 2900's are relatively rare.

    May I assume you have read this post?

    Yikes! You should get a new one and/or have the old one replated. I suspect the plating has worn off on the rim and your green lip mark is a reaction to the raw brass. That is a health hazard.

    I don't know that model, but from the photos I'm guessing it is/was a typical American baritone/euphonium. The 11" bell is one sign. I think it would probably respond pretty well if the valves and...

    Welcome to the forum, Baridude!

    John gave an answer pretty close to mine, but I would add that you might also try to play a Willson 2950 or 2960. Both offer a bigger sound than the 2900. The 2900...

    I think IET is more personalized, but not as large. They sure have a good choice of artists, though.

    The best time to visit Miraphone would be when one of the more popular tuba artists is doing a recital. That will get a lot of tuba players out of your hair so you can hear the euphonium.

    Usually an air leak will make the horn feel stuffy. It's possible that the repair job corrected some joints that were not smooth, which happened in many cases with the English Bessons. Some players...
