  2. Sticky: FS: Besson Sovereign 967 Euphonium in Silver - Excellent Shape

    This is a German Sovereign, I think, based on the "Besson" engraving on the receiver. The condition is described as nearly mint, although there is only one photo. Bid starts at $3,400 and the...

    I'm not quite sure what you are looking for. There are examples of euphonium in jazz, for example. In pop there are a few uses. The original version of "What the World Needs Now" opened with solo...

    That is a non-compensating euphonium. Willson still makes a 4-valve (with left-hand 4th valve) non-comp, I believe, so I assume the model # would be the same.

    Good catch! They both have nice cases apparently, which is a plus. If it were me I'd be tempted to go for the $400 horn - its leadpipe looks to be in better shape. And the horn seems to be in...

    Well, I know the 2266 is the right model in the 4-valve version, but I don't know the number for the 3-valve. If you see a "King Cleveland" (as a model name) that would be the lower model. The text...

    I confess I have not heard about this. For me, it would not be possible because my nasal passages have some disruptions that would require surgery I have chosen not to do. I can't inhale enough air...

    To someone who is used to a modern compensating horn, the top brands of the American-style bell front horns will seem similar in blowing. My personal choices would be a Conn or King, in their better...

    Sticky: FS: York Double-Bell Euphonium

    The seller says this is from 1929-30 (I would say 1930-31). It is in very good shape from the photos. A 4-valve model in silver with faded gold wash inside both bells.
    GREAT ENTRY POINT PRICE!...
  11. Sticky: FS: Antique Baritone-Euphonium - Rotary Valves - 1880-ish

    I just HAD to list this! It looks like a fun horn and is pretty cheap. There is some lovely scrollwork on it, and while the seller doesn't know much about it, the valve slides look like this is a Bb...

    Well, there is no doubt that many people play the Prestige with great success, but there is some sharpness. Here is my graph for the 2051:

    Totally agree, and I was allowing for that to have happened legitimately. But I'm a "once burned" kind of guy. Several years ago I had been listing his stuff, but then I noticed his listings had...

    I think you're correct. It usually happens, I suppose, because the seller found a buyer from somewhere else (not eBay).

    That listing was from quinntheeskimo. In that past I know (from personal...

    The seller says it was made around 1972/73. That should mean it has a medium/European receiver.

    Thanks nice! I just added it to the Euphonium Videos group on Facebook.
  17. FS: Conn Double-Bell, 5-Valve, Naked Lady Engraving, Short-Action Valves

    This 1946 instrument is in good used condition based on the photos. Valves look good. It looks like the little bell has gold wash inside, but I can't tell for sure about the large bell. Hard case...

    You are correct about the key. Since I have never played it before, it did not bother me. Now that you mention it, though, I should go back to some old recordings and check that. I wonder by Mendez...

    Thanks, Rick! The DC4 measures a little narrower than a 4AL, but not by much. I found it really easy to get used to the new size/feel.
  20. Czardas Full Recording Using an Alliance DC4 Mouthpiece

    I haven't done an A/B yet, but so far I'm liking the DC4 over the DC3. The 3 has a bigger sound (duh!) but sometimes I want more focus, and this piece is definitely one of those times! See what you...

    Thanks for pointing that out. I updated the listing.

    I often don't have a chance to check these listing more than once a week or so, so it is helpful when you point out changes like this!

    I'm a little confused myself, but I admit to having limited experience with old horns. However, I have one more memory that influences me.

    After owning my Holton for 20-25 years I was familiar...

    Out of curiosity, in which category would you put my 1935-ish Holton DB?

    And for clarity, are you saying the item listed here is a "Baritone Saxhorn"?
  24. Sticky: I think you're missing the point a bit. First,...

    I think you're missing the point a bit. First, this is not a baritone in the British sense of the word. It is a small euphonium. With any of these American-style euphoniums, you would indeed be...
  25. Arban Songs - Not Just for Pretty Phrasing - #112

    Here is a video where I demonstrate this song, which has some tricky rhythms (for most people, anyway). The YouTube description has a link to download the bass/treble music, and that includes a...
