    I'm looking forward to listening to this! I first heard of the project when Hiram Diaz was on the Brass Junkies podcast and the YouTube videos are great. I completely agree with David's comments....

    Regarding rumhud's observations, I had never listened to the Vaughan Williams tuba concerto before listening to this version for euphonium. To my uninformed and unbiased ear, I thought it sounded...

    I played both a Dolce and Festivo side-by-side at the Wessex showroom. They are both good horns. To me the Festivo had a clearer, more focused sound (possibly due to the smaller bell size?). I also...

    Thanks for the reply Dave. It is the QHR strap. I can't remember how long I've had it, I want to say around 3 years. It doesn't really strike me as the course weave variant, it is a fairly soft black...

    I got one of these straps a couple of years ago and never felt like I was able to get it adjusted properly. I'm not sure if it has to do with where the brace is on the Schiller that I play, but I...

    I would recommend the Altieri bag. I've used one for the past 4-5 years and it is still in great shape. No signs of wear on fabric, padding, zippers, straps, etc...

    It sure looks like you have your answer, but I also play with a beard the majority of the time and don't notice any ill affects compared to playing without a beard.

    I have never played a BB1, and it is has been a long time since I played on a Schilke 51D, but I hear the Schilke 51D is somewhat similar to the BB1. A 51D can be found pretty easily, so perhaps you...

    Good question, Guido!

    I am by no means an expert, either in playing the euphonium or describing them, but I'll do my best to answer some of your questions. In terms of sound and playability the Festivo was distinctly...

    Congrats Christiane! It's so exciting to have a new horn on the way and I can't wait to hear what you think of it. I've never played one but it sure sounds like the JP-274 is a very nice horn.

    The article John posted is indeed a good resource about the four-valve compensating system.

    And back to the original original comment, Christiane should save up for a new euphonium armed with all of this knowledge about fourth valves and 3 and 4 valve compensating systems :)
