    Welcome to the forum!

    If you are asking about new horns with that name, they appear to be Chinese clones, possibly from the Jin Bao factory. As such, they can vary a lot because Jin Bao has...
  2. Sticky: FS: York Preference Compensating Euphonium in Silver

    This is the evolution of the Sovereign 968 (I believe) after Besson UK went under. The horn is in very nice condition. Most who tried the Yorks said they played better than the comparable UK Besson,...
  3. Sticky: FS: Besson 967-2-0 Euphonium in Silver

    Here is a 967 in very good shape, with a case that is in fair-good shape. The seller will only ship to the lower 48. The bid is now $3,595 and buy-it-now is $5,995. At the latter price shipping is...

    The advice would apply to hard cases where the mute would help keep the bell rim from hitting the end of the case. And that, or course, would only work for the mutes that extend an inch or so. The...

    Thanks for closing the loop. This turned out to be a remarkably challenging question! I must have played one or more of those early horns, because I switched to Sterling in 1990. Sure don't remember...

    I don't know of anything bad about the stick version, except that it has to be formulated thicker to work in the tube. I don't know what they use to get the extra stiffness, but I doubt it would be...

    I added volume 3 to the links above. For me, it's good to have them all so I increase my odds of sliding into any service!

    Mel Bay also has a useful book, but it's only in treble clef:

    Thanks for "waking" this thread up! I put off commenting before because the questions would require a very long response. Let me try to give some basic answers.

    Good observations, Barry. Since I was involved with Sterling starting around 1989, I can comment on some of the legacy stuff.

    You're correct that the slide-end reinforcing rings were used for a...

    Welcome to the forum! I think your question deserved a thread of its own, so I moved it here.

    All 3 horns you mention are made in China, and all began life by emulating the design of a pro horn....

    I hope Doug checks in for this one. He might have better recognition skills for a Sterling.

    However, I'm 95% sure this is a Chinese horn, so the quality would be unknown unless someone has had...

    Ah, that photo helps. It's a pretty sure thing that the horn in the photo is Chinese. Notice the 4th valve coming in between the large tube and 3rd valve slides. Sterling has never done that, as far...

    Welcome to the forum!

    Flying is always a risk for euphoniums. The Bonna case is about the most compact of the hard-side cases and offers good protection. I know of a couple cases where Adams...

    Welcome to the forum!

    First, see if you can get the seller to get a clear photo of the valve buttons (that your fingertips contact). Early Sterlings had a unique shape that was hexagonal or...

    For this conversation, I think Doug deserves the coveted Warrior Prize! That had to be lots of awkwardness and pain, I would think.

    Yes, I should think so. But in most cases it might be manageable with the thickness of the felt/cord under the button.
