    The QHR site is still up, but I don't know if you can actually place an order for anything. In any case, only the 'small bore' version of the QHR remains on their site and on the sites of affiliate...

    Sounds like the Messerschmitt model might be the weapon to use against the Agent Orange. It is pricey but if it works ... the Horn Rinse functions can be duplicated with some ingenuity on your part,...

    Yamaha, Roland, Casio and Alesis in about that order all have Digital Pianos that would work. $500 will get you something that would feel alright under the fingers, but it wouldn't sound great....

    I also have a JP274 and I sure can't see ANY difference (except finish) between the OEM mouthpiece and the Wick 4AL I bought shortly after getting the Packer. I don't plan to buy another mouthpiece....

    I don't want to sound mean, but ... how is that working for you so far? That seller didn't want you play testing the horn because if you did you wouldn't buy it! They knew that, even if you didn't....

    I don't know how I feel about this. I just checked, and the Craigslist Besson is still listed for sale. That could mean something or nothing. But for the sake of anyone else in this situation. Think...

    I'm pretty sure that there isn't too much variation (any?) between brands of Euphonium springs with respect to their overall diameter. They are, for all practical purposes, interchangeable. Tuba...

    What model of horn do you have? There isn't a local source for valve guides in your area? If the guide is lifting up from the valve core is it cracked or broken vs just worn? That is not the same...

    If this is actually your question, then, no, a French C Tuba is not appropriate for these uses (but when does that ever stop anyone). Especially the British (Planets) and the Tuba/Euph ensemble...

    With respect. This is even harder to understand than your original post. Here is a little info about a Couesnon French C Tuba. It has a pretty large bore compared to your typical Euphonium, but the...

    Just saying, in case this helps anyone on a tight budget: the mp that comes with the JP274 IS a DW 4AL for all practical purposes. It would take laboratory grade measuring instruments to find the...

    Denis Wick Practice Mute Review

    As we low brass musicians well know, the bigger the horn, the more brass that goes into making it. All other things being equal (when they are) a Euphonium will cost more than a Trumpet. So also will...

    OEM Mouthpiece, yay or nay?

    I'm cruising into the end of my 2nd week with my JP274. I had budgeted for a mouthpiece to go with it, but I couldn't think of anything. The dealer suggested doing nothing and using the OEM...

    OMG. If this was April I would say the o.p. is having us on. That is truly bizarre. Just saying, the JP274 is $1K cheaper and doesn't have this problem :-) All the valves do this? They did this right...

    Yay, another JP274 in the house. We really should start a registry thread. "Concert A" (440hz) is the pitch given to tune all the strings and woodwinds. I'm pretty sure the tuning note for a Concert...

    FWIW, I am new to Euphonium, but not to brass instruments. Tuning is only partly in the instrument. Tuner apps are a blessing and a curse. No one obsessed about 20 or 30 cents either way on a note...
