    JHarris...all good points.

    BTW, I am 70 years old and I have been playing euphonium for 61 years. My hearing is non-existent above about 2kHz - 2.5kHz and has been that way since my mid-20s. Not...

    I will answer this a bit. The answer is no. The E2 is a very heavy horn much like a Miraphone 5050. With its 11" bell, the Sinfonico does not sound like an Adams (to me) at all. I would consider...

    Guido,

    I am next in line. Since most of us are playing in ensembles that are meeting, we are using the horn in rehearsal and performance and holding on to it for longer than we did with the ACB...

    Vito,

    Great write up. I want to say that I REALLY like your playing. You sound fantastic. I haven't listened all the way through the Golland piece, but the Stevens is magnificent! Keep playing the...

    Gary,

    I use Spitballs, QHR, and disassembly with swabs to do a full home cleaning on my horns. Once or twice a year. Yup valves, slides and the whole thing.

    Dave,

    Don't forget the infamous concert B-natural in the slow intro section of Pantomime. I must admit, my 2007 Prestige 2051-2 had a miserable C# (B-nat). You learn to deal with it, My Sterling...

    Shawn,

    The same team is involved in testing the Sinfonico as the Doubler. However, these are fairly widely spaced in time. Also at different price points. The Doubler positions more closely with...

    I listened pretty carefully with decent speakers. The Wick 4AL sounds a tad more brilliant and ever so slightly crisper than the Alliance DC4. The Alliance DC4 sounds just a bit warmer with just...

    Quinn has a real storefront business these days in the Seattle area. He DOES sell a lot through eBay, but it is fair for him to sell direct. I have purchased from him before and found him reputable.
