    Thanks John. I will PM it to you next week as I'll set it up this weekend. I'll probably use the trombone at home as it carries better. The courtyard would be excellent for the Euphonium. It's in...

    There is a book out there or was out there by Philip Farkas titled the art of Brass Playing which my euphonium teacher had me buy. It was copyrighted in 1962 so I'm not sure if is obtainable or...

    John is correct about the extent of the injury. I might add a suggestion is not to jump too fast about another horn. Boy oh boy I've done that before. The thing I like about Wessex is the option...

    I started playing a compensator 3+1 about 3 years ago. Besides the extra weight, there are still some fingering patterns with the 4th valve that I have to go over and over with to get it right. The...

    It appears to be a pre Constellation 24I model. The 4th valve doesn't appear to have the double tubing like the Constellation and there is no trigger. I think the Smith model was the first to be...

    It's in crooked. Don't try and pull it out. After getting some oil into it, it may twist a little gently pushing it in. I did that once with a detachable bell. Not as bad mind you. From then on I...
