    For reasons unknown to me, many compensating euphoniums are really not very happy on the B. My usual experience has been that the C is OK with open, although it is usually flat with 1. In some...

    I find that note is the best of any horn I've had as well. But I don't have any complaints about excess fuzz on it. Perhaps it is just a matter of practice and/or getting used to it (because it is so...

    I generally go by the feel of my chops the next day. If they feel "raw" or anything like that, I might take the day off. But otherwise I prefer to do some easy practice, with lots of low range and...

    Oh, yes. Either would take a bit more chop strength, so you need some time to get used to them. I switched from a 5G in the early 1980's to a 4BL, which was not quite as deep as the 4AL. It gave me a...

    I'll add my vote for the Yamaha 321. Its bore is about .570" compared to .592" for most higher-level horns. And it is certainly tried and true in a variety of uses.

    Your budget is more than ample,...

    Thanks for that great, descriptive review! I'm glad you found a good partner there. My own Sovereign Eb has a fine sound and, as you said, is very comfortable for a euphonium player to use. The...

    That's an interesting statement! I'm curious to see if you can find a better solution, partly because I agree with your assessment of the mechanical disadvantages of the current trigger systems. The...

    Agreed. For me it is not a "change" anyway, because I have used 3 for the middle G for many years on Besson, Sterling, and Adams. Most of the time. I can manage 12 in many passages if I just pull it...

    As far as I can tell, the only choice is the Zinfonia site. Generally speaking, rentals for any sheet music are not handled by multiple sources, so you may be stuck with Zinfonia. That site requires...

    I'm sorry that did not work out. it's not hard to understand SBK's position (i.e. not testing every single model), but it's a pain as the buyer.

    You're doing a nice service by documenting it all...

    Thanks, Dave. I assume it's a glitch; at least I hope so!

    But if it is no longer available let me know. I may have another source for the strap at least.

    I agree with TD517 that this horn is too young to have all those problems. A tube or two with lots of red spots can happen, but unless they are "holed" through they would not affect playing in any...

    Why We Play

    I often call myself a "euphonium player" because is a good way to tell people a lot about me (assuming they know what the word means!). But I'm also a musician. In my heart and mind, I know that...

    Well, if your main instrument is trombone, you are already dealing with a mis-match. Trombone is a Bb instrument, but it plays concert pitch bass clef. So you see a C and you play a note that sounds...
