    Thanks for clarifying Dean. I was specifically thinking about the EUPH 101 regular rim when I asked my question, which probably feels slightly different from the XT101 rim you have. And yours is in...

    Alex, when I was looking for an inexpensive way to try out a smaller mouthpiece, it was a tossup between the Faxx 51D and the Kelly. I ultimately decided to go with the Kelly, although I'm not sure...

    Thanks all for the thoughts.

    I play a standard JinBao clone (Schiller Elite), so not a big horn. My DE mouthpiece is a EUPH series (105 rim, I cup, I8 shank). I was going for the same general feel...

    I have played mouthpieces on the larger side for a pretty long time. In college I spent 4 years on a Wick SM3.5. When I picked the instrument up again 6 years ago I stayed with the SM3.5 for a year....

    This is an old old thread, but I have been listening to a lot of Anthony Caillet today as I work from home. I completely agree with JTJ and Snorlax. It is really cool to hear euphonium that is both...

    Chicago Tuba Christmas

    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...
