    Welcome to the forum! If you live near a large music store, perhaps there will be some there to try. First off, though, you need to figure out what your budget is. If it is $3K or less and you are...

    Hmmm, I hadn't considered the "bump" in the airway thing. I am kind of with Barry on this, as there is a bump with either design, slide in or out being immaterial.

    But back to my first...

    Jake,

    So if I am seeing this correctly, the larger leg on the MTS stays the same, but the smaller leg on the slide now goes "over" the receiving piece by the 4th valve, correct? One leg goes one...

    Yes, I did have the longer tuning slide. I don't think it was damaged, it just did not quite fit into the the horn, was off just a wee, wee bit, and I did not want to force it and be out of luck and...
  6. Very nice, Micah! And very nicely done, too!

    Stay on the valves, clean them frequently and keep them well oiled. Give the horn a good thorough bath at some point to flush out anything lurking inside. Get a good instrument cleaning kit with...

    Jharris, welcome to the forum!!

    Happy to see that you have just acquired a new Wessex Sinfonico. Thanks for the nice review and perspective! I found the valve caps and bottoms much easier to...

    Thanks, Rick! I suppose one could buy 3 1/3 Sinfonicos (that would be 3 complete horns and a bunch of spare parts) for what the Adams cost. That sure makes the Sinfonico a great horn for the price....

    Thanks Shawn and Michael. I like the characterization of the sound of the Adams as effortless, it is an amazing horn, and I think I am so used to it now after 5 years, that it feels almost...

    Wessex Sinfonico and Adams E3

    After doing a recent review of the Wessex Sinfonico Euphonium, I was asked to compare the Wessex, a very, very nice horn under $3K to my Adams E3 Euphonium, with a price tag over $10K (the entire...

    Thanks, Richard. I will relisten with your observations in mind.
  15. Richard, What do you mean about "part of the...

    Richard,

    What do you mean about "part of the tone spectrum is missing" with the DC4? Anyone's opinion is certainly as valid as anyone else's. I don't think I am hearing what you are hearing,...

    This one was easier for me than the DC4 vs the 4AL. The DC3 wins hands down. It actually sounded "clearer" to my ears. More body. More presence. Just a very nice sound. Of course, I may be...

    That seems to be a really good price for the Adams E2, plus it looks like the bell is engraved as well. Just checked up close, and indeed it is engraved. This is a great price. Someone is going to...

    In my experience over many years, I found very few mouthpieces that seemed to work for both euphonium and trombone. One that comes to mind that seems to work on both instruments is the Wick 4AL. ...

    Both very nice, indeed. The DC4 is a bit warmer and broader. The 4AL is a little less of that. That is about the main distinction I hear this morning, quickly, before going off to band. I could...

    Have you tried asking on the trombone forum: https://trombonechat.com/index.php?sid=1c38c4ca26825d163f1fb7ff67a043da ? Might have much better luck there.

    I just checked my Dolce and the main tuning slide water key points in the opposite direction (what I am used to) of the 1st and 3rd water keys. But I bought that Dolce over 5 years ago. The piece...
  22. Carnival of Venice Like You Have Never Heard it Before!

    I stumbled across this on YouTube. Some very insane and clean playing by several instrumentalists, euphonium and tuba included. The graphics and such might be a bit over the top, but have you ever...

    Well done, Jason. I know many of us have bought old horns, and usually the cases are a wreck or just about a wreck. I know with my 1956 B&H Imperial, the alligator case was the weak link, rather...

    Guido,

    At the risk of prematurely revealing the identity of the next reviewer, I can only say that the three remaining reviewers have first name initials of D, D, and J (in alphabetical order). ...

    Well, I will have to remotivate (is that a word?) myself to get the gear out and record with the Adams. I might give that a stab and play a few of the same tunes, especially the slow ones where you...
