    I realize this is non-doctrinaire, but I have a British(?)-style configuration with the 4th valve separate from the rest, and I play that valve with the little finger of my left hand. I just like...

    Good to know about the tissue deformation. I suppose it is natural to shift the mp around as you become fatigued, and from what you said, such shifting would be counterproductive in the long run.

    Off-center mouthpiece placement

    Many years ago, when I was a music major in college, I took a woodwinds-for-non-woodwinds-players class. I chose flute as my axe for the duration. In my method book, it showed a picture of a...

    I appreciate it when a player prefaces his or her advice with, "this has worked for me." There are a variety of roads to a destination, and what has worked for one, might not work for all. When I...

    I was a vocal performance major in college, so euphonium was not my first, second, or third instrument.

    Something I learned as a recorder player: when you get a new instrument, there is a...

    I recently bought a new Wessex Dolce, and am very happy with it. There are few dealers who can compare with Wessex in offering Western style customer service, while selling you a comparatively...

    Large-shank, small-shank

    I am a new euphonium player, having spent decades as a tubist. About the time that the euphonium industry was going through a rather significant transition--implementing the change to large shank...

    I am new to the world of euphonia, and had never read anything about that lock's real purpose. I feel rather foolish for not knowing it earlier, but am quite relieved to have learned this before any...

    I recently bought a Wessex Dolce, as well. I really like it.

    When I first took it out of the case, I saw that the "packers" had pressed the 4th valve down, and locked it in place. I thought,...

    I titled the thread as I did, hoping to stimulate some responses.

    I have recently made a permanent switch from tuba to euphonium. I played euphonium briefly in college about 45 years ago, and all...
