    I use Blue juice most of the time. Sometimes when I have washed the valves and casings, I start with one coat of either Wick or Hetman #1. They "stick" to the surface and last better than Blue Juice,...

    David,

    I listened carefully to both versions (Adams vs. ACB). I could hear very few differences in style or pitch and they both sounded like you. Of course, I don't know how it feels from behind...

    David,

    Beautiful review. I think you covered the important parts and Trent should be jumping up and down with the quality of your review! I can think of a few more things I want to look in to...

    Carrol,

    Thank you. Interesting. Some observations:


    The wick 4AM sits right between the 4AY and 4AL as one would expect.
    Your measurements for the 4AL and SM4X are virtually the same as...

    David,

    I continue to be amazed how good you sound and how clean your play is. Add it to the list! If Trent had sent us the Satin lacquer horn instead of the polished brass one, no one would have...

    Interesting that the Wessex Dolce and ACB Doubler intonation charts almost superimpose on each other. I noticed the 3rd partial pitch (D3 - E3) right away. Seems a bit weird, though the stuffiness...

    Heavy 4th Valve Caps - Mass in Grams

    I have a collection of 4th valve caps (all for Bauerfeind valveset). David had posted the mass of some with pictures, but I wanted to get a complete set of weights in grams since that is how...

    Mouthpiece Mass - Measured in Grams

    After playing around with various weight 4th valve caps, I wondered what mouthpiece mass was on some various popular choices in my collection. I did not come up with a good way to measure mass...

    John,

    I really do not know. Anything I would say would be just hearsay at its worst. I expect that the already "variable" quality of the late Edgeware production (mid-90s to early 2002) was...

    Micah,

    The last Edgeware Road instrument was 890008, so 891763 is sometime in late 2002 or more likely 2003-ish. The parts were made using tooling from Edgeware at the Schreiber-Keilwerth factory...

    John,

    I am hoping Dave Werden can do some A/B recordings with his Adams E3. He has done a very good job with comparisons of mouthpieces, horns, and bell covers. He also has access to better...

    John,

    When I get the horn, I will do a very intense tuning effort using my hour long daily routine. By the way, the high A (usually 2nd valve) is often flat, particularly on my English baritones....

    Dave Werden's recommendation on checking the specifications is a good one. At one time I had a Wick Heritage 4AL, but I never used it, prefering my sound on the standard. I have been playing the...

    Given that you have data points from 5G to 51D to 4AL, you have pretty munch covered the range of typical euphonium mouthieces. In 1980, at age 29, I was playing a 6 1/2AL when I purchased my...

    Nice horn. Your serial number 966-741004 dates this to around 1985 or early 1986. This is consistent with the fact that this does not have the "Round Stamp" logo but the newer Besson logo that...

    Thanks. This clarifies things. Yamaha then would add an inner tube to the ferrule to match the diameter of the slide. Do both (or neither) slides have water keys? I believe addition of water keys...

    Arul,

    1. Plastic guides and felts on the new 321 are the same as the 621, 631, 642, and 842. Also same guides on Yamaha piston tubas. Early plastic guides were all plastic and tended to chip and...
