    Bye-bye buzz

    I've been getting a really annoying buzz on my Dolce. Wasn't able to figure out where it was coming from; everything was tightened up. This morning I completely removed the lyre holder screw (which...

    So, what with the reduced activity over the past year, I haven't been spending my personal "mad money" as fast as I used to, and it has been accumulating to the tune of well over $1k. I did some...

    I use a diaphragm vibrato on flute (and its cousin the ocarina), but I can't make that work on euphonium. Jaw vibrato for me. I'm also not one for waggling every note longer than a fast...

    Both of those were very inspiring. I've been playing with recorded accompaniments for a decade and a half now, because (except for IET) I do not have a collaborative pianist with whom I can work. ...

    If you're using the valves, then yes, it's normal for condensation to occur on the valve slides. I find it odd that there's no water at the main tuning slide water key. Are you holding the horn in...
