    Welcome to the forum! And a big thank-you to John Morgan for responding with good general advice and some focusing questions.

    You might take a look at this article I wrote, which talks about how...
  2. Sticky: Seller measured the bell at 10" so I changed the...

    Seller measured the bell at 10" so I changed the title and description here accordingly. The fact that the baritone is over a pound lighter than the euphonium would make it easier to carry, and it...
  3. Sticky: The seller says he will get the measurement when...

    The seller says he will get the measurement when he gets home. He also says it was "sold to us as a euphonium by Adams." However, I assume he got it from a dealer, and they are not always careful...
  4. Sticky: I see what you mean. I believe both are actually...

    I see what you mean. I believe both are actually euphoniums (more or less, but they both seem pretty conical) and have the same bore. The baritone wrap is different and it has a 10" instead of the...
  5. Sticky: FS: ADAMS Marching Baritone - GREAT PRICE

    This is a marching baritone from Adams. It would have a .571 bore and a 10" bell. This one is in good shape and the price of $1,100 seems like a real bargain! The travel case shown with it is nice as...

    That's my understanding as well, and matches some old discussions I had with Sterling. The best condition you can create for the response is to have all slides pushed all the way in (which closes the...

    I think about that as well, since when I practice my bell points directly at my wife (through my ceiling/her floor). But some mix & match can work for some things. For example, in the Art of Phrasing...

    I would say the Arban student would be better prepared, if the choice were ONLY THE Arban OR ONLY THE Rochut. Many of the Arban's songs are familiar, which can aid one in developing musicianship,...

    Not to be overlooked: the Complete Conservatory Method of Arban has 150 songs in the middle and several full solos at the end, most of which have a verse and a theme. Certainly the Rochut is more...

    Very nice (and well played)! One might listen to the first 75% and think, "Gee, I could probably sight read that." But then it gets a bit exciting near the end!

    FYI, I added it to the "Euphonium...

    I have said for years that my desert island book is the Arban Complete Conservatory Method. No book has everything, but this one has a great variety. And you can extend it with a little imagination....

    Welcome to the forum, and thanks for your thorough review!

    Here is a little video I did 4 years ago, which might help you deal with this more easily:

    The next reviewed has requested a slight logistical delay, but I think that is about expired now. Things should start to happen again soon!

    I'm ignorant about such things. How much does the valve change the key/pitch? It's a pretty cool-looking old horn!

    To some extent, yes. That is what makes comparing them difficult. Another approach that would help in one way is for me to spend at least a week on a single mouthpiece, then record excerpts. Then...

    Without commenting too much on the outcome, let me say that the DC3 is a bit harder to play when life gets intense in the higher registers. That is a factor in my overall decision. I suspect the next...
  18. Large Room Test #2: Wick 4AL vs Alliance DC3 (David Childs Signature)

    Here is the 2nd round (same session; different video clip assembly). The DC3 is a similar width to the 4AL, but feels slightly larger than my own 4AL (perhaps due to rim shape). The DC3 has a...

    I appreciate all the comments so far! I am not saying much about the sound comparison myself so I don't influence this conversation.

    FYI, the other 2 videos I'll post soon are the same session,...

    Nice horn! I hope you don't mind that I changed the subject line to include "Antique Finish." That sets it apart from most other horns and might draw someone's interest a little quicker.

    I DO enjoy playing the DC4, but when I switch back to the 4AL (like for this test) it is also fun to play. Mostly I think the DC4 is slightly easier to play, but only slightly.
  22. Thanks! I think that is partly because many folks...

    Thanks! I think that is partly because many folks rely only on their tongue to play those. But that is the lesser of the input the music needs from us. Mostly it is air. Here is a video I did just on...
  23. Large Room Test: Wick 4AL vs Alliance DC4

    OK, here is the first of 3. This one compares my 4AL with my DC4, using my church sanctuary. For this one I deliberately had the mic well back in the room to give a better perspective of what a...

    Micah,

    Maybe I missed a post about it, but I'm not aware of how a player can purchase the music. Is there a source at this point? Thanks!
