    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...

    My mental spell checker didn't work on that one. 6 1/2AL is what I ordered and just got. Blessing, not Bach. Don't like paying the premium price of a Bach.

    There appears to be one on Ebay right now. However, I would never buy from that seller unless you understand the condition will be grossly misrepresented. My horn came from there and required a...

    Thanks for all the recommendations. I ordered a 6 1/2C in large shank. I also agree with everything else. The 4AL is an amazing mouthpiece. For me, I wish it were just a bit warmer in sound,...

    I thought of the same thing last night. I forget that stores have mouthpieces. It has been so long since I've been able to go to a store and shop.

    I also realized that there is probably a...

    Mouthpiece for JP274

    Hi All,

    I recently tested a few horns at a local store. I brought a couple of mouthpieces with me, including a Schilke 51D. I noticed that the Shires Q41 loved that mouthpiece. I loved that horn...

    They are very responsive to questions. We had a conversation sometime back and if I was willing to spend the bucks, it would be a good one to try.

    I saw the Bluecoats sell used horns. Not cheap but you would be playing something that they have used. Kind of says commitment. Drum corps is a wonderful world. I envy you the opportunity.
