Thread: Alto horns?

  1. #11
    RNCM in Manchester appears to have a Tenor Horn master's program:

    And the teacher is Owen Farr of the Cory Band. Can't get much better than that.

    in my experience, euphonium players doubling on tenor horn get a really great sound on that instrument!

    Yeah I have heard some great players that happen to play euphonium primarly but...anyway, now that I am thinking It, I do not remember seeing where to study tenor horn, I mean a bachellor program. So where does a primarly Tenor horn player is formed?

    I have two, A left handed Mirafone contraalto in F, and a Besson Front action in Eb. The Miraphone has an amazing tone, but the besson has better intonation

    I had a blow on the JP 172 today. Seems like a nice horn, but I took out the valves to oil them and had a heck of a time getting them back in properly. The valve guides didn't really click into place like I am used to on a euphonium. The mp was a bit small for me, but I could get a decent sound in some registers, mostly the middle to upper. I would really like to try it with a different mp before committing to buy.

    No F slide. No mouthpiece. Costs more than brand new Chinesium.

    High school had some Olds Marching Altos... I had my own Conn, but I tried the Olds horns a few times to make sure they were in playing condition. I wasn't that impressed with them. Smaller than I liked. What do you want to do with it? It's a Marching Alto Horn. If you want to use it for Brass Band, you might actually be better off with the China junk.

    All I really want to do is fart around with some home multitrack recordings. I was in a brass band for a while but it is a 90 minute drive from home, so that got old fast.
