    There are a lot of options out there, but the question is, do they work well for brass instruments. I have tried stainless mouthpieces, but I did not like the feel, and am pretty much a dyed in the...

    Ahh, so it's a fully "floating" leadpipe except for the receiver. That is something I've seen a lot more of recently. My Eb Tuba and Euph both have fully soldered down leadpipes.

    Hopefully Červený can return in some form or another. The company has a HUGE history, and some of the earliest contrabass tubas and Kaisertubas were developed by them.

    You are unlikely to find anything in community band or orchestra that can't be covered by an Eb compensating tuba. The same with Ooompah bands. Even with professional Orchestra players, they usually...

    Is there a rubber O-ring in there that helps it stick?

    Anyway, try putting your mouthpiece in the freezer for a bit, then see if it fits. DO not put the booster in the freezer.

    I would definitely make sure that your horn does not have any leaky water keys or misaligned valves. Those are two things that can easily make your sound airy and diffuse. Also, there is a circular...

    I got braces my senior year of high school, and once I had them, had to relearn how to play, and when they were off, had to relearn again. The important thing is to go with what works. Double buzz is...

    Yeah, it gets confusing, not least because if you ask a Trombone player what a "high F" is, that is likely not to be the same "high f" that a Tuba player is referring to, but that also depends on...

    Well, that's interesting. I wonder what the feel/texture is like. I notice that one of the displayed mouthpieces on the front page definitely had some corrosion issues prior to the process.

    Having played guitar for years now, it really is "the weakest finger", and "the slowest finger". If you're doing trills, bends, etc on a guitar, it's the one finger you don't use. It just doesn't...

    First, check to make sure somehow you didn't swap your mouthpiece with another one that looks similar (i've done it!)

    Next, check for leaks, especially at the spit valves. Those can cause issues...

    I think, for a full Refurbish treatment, there really is a certain level it has to have reached, as well as some connection you may have with the horn.

    Thanks so much! That definitely does make sense. I'm going to assume that the "Gold Brass" is 85/15 alloy, though it could be 90/10.

    The whole red brass, gold brass, rose brass confusion is...

    My Perantucci Sterling is also stamped 1065HGS. Serial number 753534. It is fully silver plated, no gold whatsoever. It's from before they started using the "Virtuoso" name I believe.

    I figured I'd cross post this from Tube net, as it's a really nice horn with a great history. I saw this tuba when it got listed on the Dillon Music website, but it didn't really have any information...

    I recently acquired a 15" bell Boosey & Hawkes Eb Tuba from 1952, formerly owned by a Euphonium Player. I'll try to post some thoughts once I get the hang of it in comparison to my BBb Yamaha.

    Back in the old days maybe, but not for modern instruments. You'll also find people who say the best mouthpieces "pop" an octave. Basically if you tap your finger across the end of the shank, and...

    Yes. So post some pictures and most likely in a few days you'll know exactly what it is, and also how to bring it back into "playing condition" after sitting around for quite some time.

    The Trigger system requires different tolerances and precise alignment on the main tuning slide. It's a lot looser so it slides easily, which means you can't just install the trigger on the tuning...

    IMHO, you should not be using the same mouthpiece with a Bass Trombone and a Euphonium. They are two very different instruments and sound concepts.
