    Mike, I think Dave knows me pretty well. You suffer from the "hoarder" affliction, too??!! My illness extends to other instruments as well, sigh....

    The power of "sleep on it" plus revelations as to its lineage (not that Patrick Schulz is a slouch) have made me come back to my senses (what little I have). But the temptation is there...

    Ditto what Dave said. They looked really clean and shinny when Lee did it.

    One way I have to see if the valves need cleaning, particularly when they stick, is to pull the valve out and look in...

    Horn sounds fantastic, Hiram. I could hear it well over the band. Were you close to the mic? I have heard you on the other Shires, the Q41 I believe. In this setting it is hard to distinguish...

    I enjoyed the new Concerto, Hiram. Well done, bravo! Your rendition of Student Prince was eloquent. You looked mighty darn spiffy in front of the band, well done. You do the Marine Band proud.

    Nice looking horn, and a nice looking bunch of horns, too! Hope you find good places to play it. I, too, like Pat, am curious as to how the valves work.

    I just listened to the piece on YouTube. Looks like the highest note is a high Bb concert (C treble clef). I heard that note twice in the piece. Also heard a few high Ab concerts (Bb treble clef)....

    Look at the Wessex Dolce Euphonium or the Austin Custom Brass Doubler Euphonium. Both in the $1,650 price range give or take a little. Both are compensating euphoniums. And there is a ton of info...

    Definitely an E3 would be better than an E1 or E2 for a British Brass Band, imho.

    Indeed!! That IS a very nice flock of euphoniums. Now comes the silly question. Is "flock" correct? There can be a gaggle of geese, a flock of birds, a murder of crows, a pod of whales and a...

    Sean,

    Any notion where ITEC 2023 is going to be? I thought I had heard Arizona, but I can't seem to find anything on it after a brief look around the Internet.

    Thanks.

    Austin Custom Brass is indeed a great dealer. I got my Adams T1 Trombone through them (and Miel, sort of). Great customer service as well.

    Yep, Kowa-Bunga indeed. That word was popularized by Chief Thunderthud (what a name) on the Howdy Doody show (40's and 50's). I still start off each morning when I wake up by saying "Howdy Doody"...
