    I've been very pleased with my Mack brass euphonium. Great value for the price.

    The old Scottish split leaf Psalters used to all be in common meter and they switched tunes and texts around all the time. Perhaps the most familiar one is Old Hundreth, the Louis Borgeois tune...

    john, only q little bit. Perhaps my ear is deceiving me-- I'm not sure- sicne I haven't really checked it out that much. It's when I do octave warm-up slurs that I seem to notice it the most.

    On my Mack Brass the low B natural is very flat with a 2+4 combination, but is much more in tune with 123. It doesn't seem to make as much difference with the low C if I use 1+3 or 4 alone.

    Our community band seems to vary from 3-6 euphonium players depending on the gig. I always bring one of my trombones to rehearsal along with my euphonium because often our trombone section is...

    They work well in my Mack Brass, but I've had to put a couple of sets in since I bought the horn because, as mentioned above, the plastic eventually comes off. They're cheap though, and my local...

    Maybe being "sonically flexible" means something like I read from jazz cornetist, Warren Vache. He plays a longer style cornet-- the kind that resembles an Olds Ambassdor, etc that was standard for...

    John, are you driving past Iowa City again? We're gone on vacation this week, but will be back next week.

    I played the Adams T bone as well and It blew very nicely. I didn't run the F attachment through its paces as you did., though. I also played the Adams E1 and E2 and both were very nice...

    Yes, it was great to meet you John, Jim, Randy and a few others who, like John Morgan, their names skip my aging brain right now, along with Dave, of course. The concert was fabulous for showing...

    Dave, sounds like a plan. I think we all should recognize you. :)

    I'm currently planning on being at the Wed evening concert at Voxman and The Mill is kitty-corner across the street. Although Marc Dickman is the only jazz euphoniumist that I recognize, if the rest...

    Dave, John Manning responded on his U of I email account and confirmed that as far as he knew there would be individual tickets for $15 for all of the concerts. I'm likely going to attend the...

    Dave, the link on the page to email John Manning doesn't work, but I have his U of I email and I emailed him.

    Although, I'm sure he's incredibly busy with the conference and his many...

    A month ago we mentioned the possibility of some of us meeting at the ITEC. Although I live in Iowa City, I haven't signed up for any of the sessions-- I've been busy and have a gig on Memorial Day,...

    Let me question one of the comments in the initial fine overview of the various horns. I have played a silver plated Mack Brass for about 5 years and I have seen no evidence of worn sliver plating. ...

    I think becoming That Guy varies so much. I have a section mate in the trombone section in the Big Band that I play in who is 89, I believe, and he is still playing at a pretty good level. He also...

    Good suggestion.

    The Mill is just across the street and down a couple of doors from the Music building. The Marriott is not far away, either. Whenever we figure out who might be there, we can...

    Perhaps those of us who frequent this forum could set some time when we could all meet each other and put faces and voices together with the words we've written on this website.

    I guess my wife could "hold" one as well, but I only have on euphonium, unlike trombones where I own 4.

    She could borrow one. I have a friend who collects all sorts of brass instruments and has...

    Since we live in Iowa City, attending at least some of these sessions seems like a no-brainer. Hopefully I will have the chance to meet a few of you.

    I understand from a euphonium-playing...

    Thanks for the suggestion, but I'm thinking cheap, because I will only use the mp a few times a year, while traveling.

    Most of the screw rim set-ups are much pricier than even a standard mp. I'm...
