    In the postwar Conn line, you would be looking for a 20i (Artist Series) which is a 3 valve with short action valves. Alternatively, in a 4 valve, the 24i Connstellation was the premier horn from...

    My brother sent this out to his fellowship last night. It explains the context and for the lovely performance and the message behind the music.

    Quinn has a real storefront business these days in the Seattle area. He DOES sell a lot through eBay, but it is fair for him to sell direct. I have purchased from him before and found him reputable.

    Dieter,

    Wow! Beautiful. I forwarded this to my brother, a minister in Reno, NV. He sends daily Meditations to his congregants once or twice a day. I hope he can use this to inspire the peace and...

    Franz,

    I am not totally sure it is as simple as that. I did the reverse on a 2001 Sovereign (which has a full floating leadpipe). I didn't like the wrap of the Soverreign leadpipe (late British...

    Mike,

    The change to the 3rd valve wrap to move it closer to the outer bow is not unique to the new Gold Lacquer horn, but was made sometime around 2012 to all Sovereign/Prestige models. What I had...

    I am not sure of the exact physics of this, but in a conical instrument, as the bore grows larger, the effect on pitch of additional tubing changes. I can report my experience that 1" at the leadpipe...

    Mark,

    The Besson 2051 Prestige is an 11" bell horn with trigger. There are quite a few in the used market and they are MUCH more available than the 968T. I had a very early German production...

    My original assumption after looking at the pictures of the Conn DB referred to by Dave Werden above is that this is an HP horn converted to LP. The tuning slide in the leadpipe has the lengthened...

    The 2280 is probably a better choice for modern use. The 24i/25i (which I grew up on) are traditional front facing American baritones, smaller bore than the 2280 and not nearly as resonant as the...

    I find a substantial difference on the DE between the 103 and 104, particularly if I get the "S" rim. (ex. 104S) I find the 103 works pretty well for me with the EUPH J cup and J9S shank. The M&B is...

    My chops have stayed right around 26mm for the last 40 years. I have found that going any larger than a Wick 4 (any version) just doesn't work. And depending on the horn, a Bach 5G is my preference...

    There are important differences between the floating leadpipe on the standard Prestige, new gold lacquer Prestige, current Sovereign, Adams, and Sterling Virtuoso. The Sovereign's leadpipe wraps...

    The Wick 4AY is essentially a tenor shank Wick 4AL. It was specifically designed for the the 321. I find I can get a VERY nice full tone on a YEP-321 using the 4AY.

    Joe,

    I hesitate to offer too much advice. I don't want you to end up purchasing a gaggle of mouthpieces! Both Dave and I are fans of the 4AL, having a cumulative 60+ years on that mouthpiece,...

    I have a recording of the New England Brass Band playing a SA hymn. I converted it into a ring tone that I used for any calls from members of the NEBB.

    Joe,

    Be aware that the 4AL will not fit your Conn. Your Conn is a tenor shank and the 4AL is bass trombone shank.

    Joe,

    The mouthpiece that will work well on the Conn is VERY different than what works on the ACB. I used a 6.5AL on my Conn for years (back in the late 60s and early 70s). I continued to use the...

    Micah,

    I have one of the carbon fiber belly plates that Geneva used to use. These are great. The basic mounting points on the Besson are quite strong, including the Gold plated brass rod and the...

    I originally ordered a whole brass band set of Moistureguard covers from the UK. The euphonium covers were plenty big enough for my 11.8" (300mm) Sterling and my 12" Adams and would have fit...

    Please note that the Alliance number system and Wick numbering system do not coincide. At 26 mm, the Wick 4 (4AL, SM4, SM4U, Sm4X, SM4UX) is equivalent to the Alliance 3 (DC3, E3).
