    Checking the other Doubler samples at Trent's place is an excellent idea, Doug. Looking forward to more feedback from Dave (and others). This is a novel, and quite good idea, I might add. Trent,...

    Dave - so your 12 for high concert A sounds okay? On my Adams, the timbre is really different from traditional fingering of 2 (or 1-3). But, 2 valve plays high A concert on my Adams just fine. My...

    Good, Dave, glad you will record, you certainly have a world more experience with that than I do. I travel to UPS at 4:30 today to send the Doubler on to the next lucky soul.

    That was really nice, Dave (and Sara). I hope Sara knows that she is a star, also! Based on this and I think another hymn I heard you play, I ordered the music (euphonium/CD and piano) books. I...

    Great performance. A few spillover artists, for instance, Joe Alessi on trombone from the New York Phil. What a great bunch of brass, truly exhilarating indeed. Would that be fun to play with!! In...
