    It's nice to have some help from a trusted player, and it seems you came to a good solution.

    Now all you have to do is practice (and take lessons if possible)!

    We don't usually see questions...

    This refers to what I started noticing about 25-30 years ago. I'd listen through my stereo speakers to a solo I had played with the band. From that room it sounded fine. But then I went into the...

    Welcome to the forum!

    That's an interesting observation, and even more interesting considering I experience the same thing in reverse.

    A tuner is a valuable tool, but there are some steps you...

    Welcome to the forum!

    I would advise staying away from that lovely old horn, which was made somewhere around 1909. There are questions about whether it is made to play at A440 for starters. And it...

    Ollie, for what it's worth, I think it would be worth your while to try a few of the large-bore modern horns. I test everything I can get my hands on, and the compensating Willson, Yamaha, and Adams...

    FYI, here is a previous video I did where I show some more detail in the inner parts of the AGR:

    Starting with the last statement, yes, sort of. I think Austin has some control over certain features and specs that the factory builds to, and they of course do QC when they receive the horns. They...

    I think my answer above summarized my thoughts:


    A horn like the ACB will feel smoother to blow and smoother mechanically (especially the valves). Here is a sampler I did with the ACB:

    Welcome to the forum and to the world of the euphonium!

    As for the 4th valve mystery, check out the article linked below. It is intended to explain the compensating system, but also shows why you...

    Those are fine horns if you find one in nice shape. The bore was about .580 on the older Bessons, so they don't empty your lungs quite as fast as the new horns with bores around .592.

    The sound is...

    Here is a video I did recently about using the AGR on my Adams euphonium. I DO venture into the issue of how little is too little when you adjust it.

    There are a few players like this who were respected and accomplished, but who are not household names today. Here is a list of recordings I had logged in my old Euphonium Music Guide from Zawadi:

    HINT #1:

    The connection is via someone who was on the show fewer than 10 times (although still a memorable character who performed music on screen a few times).

    That's a terrific guess! Not the connection I was thinking of, though. The connection I'm thinking for is to someone who was known primarily as a jazz euphonium player. (So far I have found only one...
  20. Trivia Question: The Andy Griffith Show & Jazz Euphonium

    OK, let's start this out at high difficulty. If no one gets it I'll add some clues.

    In what way does The Andy Griffith Show have a connection to a professional jazz euphonium player?

    Actually, the 968 and 967 (11" and 12" bells respectively) had different leadpipes. The 968 had one more like the 966, while the 967 had a completely different design (which was sometimes referred to...

    I should add that I just had my horn ultrasonically cleaned (it was overdue). The shop uses Ultrapure and that is what was on the horn when I picked it up. It really made the valves feel silky...

    That is what makes choosing an oil so complicated! What works for me in an E3 might not work for John's E3, for example, because of our different chemistry.
