    Thanks John. You're right in your description, trumpet players have this done also, the technical term for it is "reverse slide." The main benefit they claim is that there is no "bump" of...

    Adams E3 Reverse Slide retrofit

    All,

    Here is the finished product on my Adams E3 that I took in for repair. The alignment was so bad you can see the degree of bend in the fix to get the horn in alignment. At the same time,...

    Also the description says DC3 but the picture says DC4? I was going to post this on the FB marketplace post of this horn but got distracted by something else!

    The DC4 seems to have a "wider" sound profile whereas I would describe the 4AL as more "compact". It almost sounds like the recording equipment changes with each mouthpiece, so interesting. Do you...

    Yep, 6.5AL will last until high school and then you can try 51D or 5G esque MP. I played 6.5AL all through HS. Also agree with the Wick 6BS and Yamaha 48 above. Any standard mp in this size (or...

    I know what you mean, the 4U I have feels "duller" than the 4AL when it comes to articulations but the singing sound is amazing. I think the 4X feels a bit better articulation wise but is worse (for...

    I haven't seen any pictures or anything yet, just what Scott described to me over the phone. But yes, I think that is right, reverse slide.

    Bit of another update:
    Back from vacation and called my technician who received the box of parts from Miel. The redesign is a pretty big change to the main tuning slide. Previously the main tuning...

    Bit of an update:
    Iím on vacation until Wednesday but my tech is still trying to resolve this with Adams. Apparently Adams has redesigned the E3 main tuning slide within the last year, so itís not...

    The warmth in the lower range is enhanced with the DC3. If it doesn't effect endurance I'd say go with that one. Intonation and musicality seem similar - not as clear as the DC4/4AL comparison. My...

    It's not that I *don't* like it - again it's a fine horn. I have a feeling trying to make any decision now based on a horn that isn't playing to it's capability due to the alignment issue is just an...

    Thanks for the replies. The horn was shipped to me seemingly undamaged - the trigger assembly and slide moved freely in and out of the horn without problem. The only problem was a secondary buzz...

    What should I do?

    Hello friends, I need advice.

    My E3 is in the shop with serious tuning trigger alignment issues. My tech hasn't yet gotten back to me with repair costs because he's reaching out to Miel to find...

    Most chinese euphs are clones of the Yamaha 641 and as such will play better for you: used to the Yamaha sound, intonation, response, ergonomics. Mack Brass and Wessex Dolce are typically cited as...

    They couldn't be bothered to look at the valves before shipping the horn to you? On a horn they've had since December? Why does this seem prevalent throughout the industry? So many mfg miss easy to...

    If this case came with the horn I sold you, it is the "standard" MB size but the "newer" redesign that has the more comfortable straps and sleeker profile to make it easier to carry. I had an MB...

    Blue all the way. You are so much more dynamic, more musical. You color the tone more with blue than red as needed and it seems more open and vibrant. It suggests a familiarity with blue that isn't...

    I would also consider posting to the NABBA facebook group, you'll reach lots of brass bands there and as people get vaccinated you may see bands looking to swap up good deals. We're talking about...

    I mean, again, the horn plays flat for most immediately and then they get used to it and it doesn't. My horn didn't magically shorten itself. For some they'd rather have the shorter main tuning...

    Every Adams horn I've ever played has played "lower" than other mfg horns. There is an air adjustment period, in my opinion, that happens and you do get used to it. I love it because once I got...
