    I've found the general "Facebook Marketplace" kind of sucks for selling high-priced, niche instruments such as ours. I've had MUCH more success with the "Tuba/Euphonium Marketplace" group on...

    Variance in the same model

    Most of us like to try new horns - I certainly do (even though I've settled into what I consider the perfect setup for me currently). And when shopping and testing, and shopping some more and testing...

    These types of instruments always interest me. I'd love to get the chance play one (or a Miraphone or an Alexander) at some point. IIRC people on these forums have said that they can be a bit hard to...

    Interesting about the buttons. I've owned two Willsons, a 2950 which I bought new from WWBW circa 2003 when it was still a real store, and a 2900 that I believe was from the mid-90s (I can't remember...

    Any idea why that is, Dave? More difficult to manufacture?

    My particular E1 was already made with the SS leadpipe, and honestly I've never had a horn I enjoy playing more. Now, whether or not the...

    Valve clearance/compression/"tightness"?

    So, over the past year and a half or so, I've owned three different euphoniums - from Willson, to Geneva, to finally settling on the Adams E1 I fell in love with at ITEC last summer. All three have...

    I have to roll my eyes at that sentiment just a bit. I get that they're speaking specifically about the market, but it's all perceived value. IMHO it's a better doubler's (or jazz) horn than a...

    IIRC Gail Robertson plays on a 2950. It's a great horn with a big sound. At the top-tier level of euphoniums it's all about personal preference. Willson wouldn't still make the 2950 if there weren't...
