    Yet another new horn thread

    So, what with the reduced activity over the past year, I haven't been spending my personal "mad money" as fast as I used to, and it has been accumulating to the tune of well over $1k. I did some...

    Both of those were very inspiring. I've been playing with recorded accompaniments for a decade and a half now, because (except for IET) I do not have a collaborative pianist with whom I can work. ...

    Community band has started up after a year's layoff, and the tube player who sits next to me has inherited another [former] player's Wessex tuba. It's a rotary 4-valve, but it also has a...

    If you're using the valves, then yes, it's normal for condensation to occur on the valve slides. I find it odd that there's no water at the main tuning slide water key. Are you holding the horn in...
