    For reasons unbeknownst to me, the 44E4 is actually shallower than the 51D. It's very similar to the old Besson 10, if you've ever seen one of those. Besson 10 has a better (larger) throat. ...

    If you want something small and deep, try a Schilke 44E4. It's deeper than the 6.5AL, similar cup diameter to the 12C, and has a good rim for small embouchure. Throat isn't as large, obviously. ...

    I looked it up. Looks like a really old Chinesium rebrand. Probably Jinbao or Jinyin.

    What mouthpiece are you using? I haven't had the luxury of encountering a piston horn that's so sensitive...

    I've always been a fan of Lexan and Perspex. IMO, it plays like a heavier mouthpiece and gives a softer feel on the lips without any tone difference. Sadly, I haven't really ventured into owning...

    I'm late to the party, but that's because I've been thinking about how to really respond to this. I'm not even as much of a musician as I was in high school, but that's what being away from playing...

    A lot of the reason that Euphonium and Trombone mouthpieces overlap is that the two instruments have similar tendencies in mouthpiece behavior and players are often looking for the same results. Not...

    I have a similar instrument, but the 3V compensating version. I also gave up trying to find a model number, but it's basically the same thing as the New Standard of the same time period with a tiny...

    Pretty much anything can have some amount of effect on a brass instrument. How much? Heck if I know. My school band director, who was and still remains a professional Trumpet player, had a horn...
  11. How to: Mouthpiece for 13mm receiver Tuba (Eb Bass/Contrabass Saxhorns)

    Yeah, there's probably some venders that sell this sort of thing, but if you know exactly what you need, then you don't have the scour the internet to find a guy that says he thinks he knows.

    So,...

    Ok, let me be very specific.

    I want to know if anyone has a known and affordable method of confirming the measurement of a taper.

    Anything I can do to get some more useful information besides spend another $5k on horns and measuring equipment?
  14. K, I have at least one of every "common" tenor shank mouthpiece

    (Except for whatever goofy thing H.N. White used on the Trombonium)

    Now what? I don't have horns to test all of them on because I don't have anything bigger than medium shank (yet).

    There have...

    Just some random thoughts as they come to me.

    French Horn is a pretty terrible instrument to start on. I wouldn't recommend it to anyone. It's much better if you already have a skill set that...

    I've never played any such beast. My weapons of choice tend to run the low end of three digits. I do, however, have a suggestion. Try some earmuffs or an ear plug and cover/protect the ear closest...

    Never played the Maly, but the ergonomics are the same as a any other rotary. The only difference is the flipped bell curve, and the fact it's mega compact.

    I can't imagine downsizing to a 51D. I sorta kinda downsized from a 6.5AL to a Schilke 44E4. Haven't had a reason to look back. I get everything I want from a 24mm (or smaller) rim and I only have...
