    Jason, I am using one of the Carbon Fiber Belly pans on my Sterling Virtuoso (customized to use the Besson Belly pan). I DO have a spare plexiglass pan if you need one.

    The pictured horn in the OP's post is exactly what I marched with in the Cal Band from '71 - '73. Great sounding horn and beautifully made with satin silver and gold wash bell. I think the horn I...
  5. All Bb English baritones gurgle.

    I have played the 955 3-valve (and a number of equivalents), the 956 4-valve (actually a York 3056 built using the same tooling), and the Besson 2056 4-valve. ALL Bb baritone's have the "can't get...

    Dennis, I am so sorry to hear of your fall. I did a face plant outside the WGBH studio exactly 3 years ago. I thought I had it bad with a black eye, busted glasses, two broken fingers, and 2 more...

    Despite the seller's eBay misnomer, this is NOT a JP Sterling Virtuoso. It is just a Sterling Virtuoso. The "JP Sterling" moniker only applies to the JP274/JP374, instruments which are completely...

    I play the 4AL most of the time, but also play the Alliance E3 and my DE Euph J9 103. I also love the sound of my Alliance E3 (aka Prestige E3) but suffer from stamina issues after 1-2 hours of...

    Excellent horn and price. These were often used as Intermediate horns by high schools in the 60s and early 70s. The only problem is that are more difficult to march with than American style. There is...

    Yup that is mine. Nick Narcisi had the straight bell redone but is now selling it. This is likely the nicest Connstellation anyone will see for a LONG time. It is in immaculate playing shape with...

    Jacob, do you have any mouth piece currently? A bass trombone mouthpiece? Tenor? While your 1968 horn (I checked your serial#) would originally have had a medium shank receiver, it could have been...

    Doesn't use the same springs. In fact the springs on this horn were obviously cut down from something else to shorten them as the spring has a flat coil at one end and is just cut off at the other....

    My experience with playing a 20i (short action) directly against my 24i (standard action) was that the short action valves tended to have a bit of a "pop" in between notes on slurred (non-tongued)...

    An update on Valve throw:

    1. On my Sterling Virtuoso w/Bauerfeind valves, the valve throw is about 13/16" (.8125"). Adams with standard valves should be similar.
    2. On my Adams E3, valves 1-2-3...

    Dean, the short action valves do not seem to affect sound or responsiveness at all. When auditioning this horn (with Miel Adams), I tried 3 other E3's. Mine has a .70 Yellow brass bell. The others...

    Charlie,

    Most modern compensating euphoniums have pretty similar valve stroke. The first three valves often have a bore of .580" (approx), however the 4th valve loop is usually larger (up to...

    Typically, the small bell side of a double bell euphonium sounds most like an English baritone. The bell is usually smaller than a modern bass trombone and the bore is usually smaller as well. OTOH,...

    Bottom bow is pretty dented. The trigger is missing the nickel plated handle and the second lock nut. The handle could be fabricated out of brass. It is a straight piece of brass with L-shaped ends...

    Hi, my Sterling is a "heavy red brass" bell but in 300mm (11.8") rather than 305mm (12") or 310mm (12.2"). The smaller bell gives a more compact sound and slightly better response, but the bell...

    I saw that film years ago. Didn't actually enjoy it much, but I will admit I missed the euphonioum soundtrack.
