    To quote my response from a previous test:



    I listened first with ear buds connected to my laptop. Then I listened to good quality speakers connected to my desktop computer. I noticed the same...

    Same issue as the DC4 in this one. Part of the tone spectrum is missing. I also watched the DC3 vs. DC4 on Youtube posted this morning. Same feeling. I think the 4AL is a much better sound for large...
  3. In this case, the DC4 is missing middle to middle...

    In this case, the DC4 is missing middle to middle high frequencies (graphically say on a 0-10 scale, 6-8 is missing). The 4AL sounds fuller and more balanced. I enjoyed hearing the 4AL this time. I...

    With the DC3 vs. DC4, the DC4 makes me happy. I know. Weird reaction but there is a thickness to the lower level in the spectrum of tone that supports the whole sound that really sets this one apart....

    Consistently throughout you lose overtones with the 4AL. The DC4 has them and gives you a more balanced sound. For me, the DC4 wins.

    I think the SM series is great. I keep going back to a SM9B. Small shank.

    I'm now a year and a half into taking up euphonium and switching from trumpet/french horn. At first I wondered how you guys found enough air to play even one phrase. Now I don't think about it much....

    Sorry. I've got a nice 3 valve. Looking for a Conn 4 valve. Where, oh where, will my desires be fulfilled?

    Says the man with a Conn 86I. Sigh. I keep looking for an 84I. Long wait.

    I always figure you should practice how you play. The ability to take a breath and play any note, be it high or low, would seem to make sense. So practicing another way makes no sense for me. Forming...

    As someone who plays a 1935 Conn 64I, I am scratching my head. I bought it because I had a friend with one and thought it sounded great. I also have many period mouthpieces for it as well as modern...

    In my experience, jazz trombone players are quite difficult to find. I've been playing that part for years on a variety of horns. I am now using a marching baritone. Larger bell means mutes can be...

    Update on this. I didn't want to pay for the Marcinkiewicz. But in looking at mouthpieces, I noticed that the King 12C had a similar shape to the Marcinkiewicz 12C. And it was much cheaper. I got one...

    There is a video on Youtube with the guy playing three different marching baritones. He thought and I agreed that the Blessing sounded the best. Based on that, I bought a Blessing for just under...

    I really appreciate you putting this video up. For the folks thinking of getting a horn, just pay attention to the bell size and what the horn is called. The marching euphonium has a different sound...

    I kept thinking it wasn't because I kept seeing a black line around the outside of the rim. It looks like an added feature I've never seen. But maybe it is just the light and there's nothing there....

    Mouthpiece Identification

    I've been trying to identify the mouthpiece used by flugabone master Erling Wicklund in this video. Anybody recognize it? Thanks.

    Ah too bad. I'm guessing the horn is not what we would have hoped it would be. Too bad. Flugabones are expensive due to the notoriety (my guess). Being able to buy a budget version new would be cool....

    I have a Blessing marching baritone. It doesn't really like the 6 1/2AL. In fact it really doesn't like any really deep cupped mouthpieces. It does like more shallow style cups, that being a relative...

    Out of curiosity, what mouthpiece were you using on the flugabone?

    It is funny how people stick with what they know, even though it is not quite right. The issues you mention are what I hear during the demonstration. The open sound that you enjoy sounds to me "too...

    A bit of a different take from me. I'll approach this as if a student were testing mouthpieces. Not to imply I am an accomplished anything as you truly are, but it would seem red is a little too...

    For an update to this thread, I went back to my local store to try the JP274 again with a 6 1/2AL mouthpiece. The mouthpiece in small shank has never been my favorite. This was my first time playing...
