I am thinking about the possibility of getting the lead pipe on my euph adjusted, so that the mouthpiece is about half an inch - an inch left of where it is now, because at the moment i find when playing my hand is getting cramped from the angle I have to hold the instrument, especially if I'm standing. My valve work isn't too great either as I don't have a lot of freedom to get my fingers right down. Basically, to hold my instrument where it is comfortable to have the mouthpiece on my lips I have to compensate by my hand being uncomfortable (It's easier to explain if I have a euph in my hand!). I know a guy who says he can do the job, but obviously it is a pretty major adjustment and will probably cost a bomb, so just wondered if there was anyone who has a similar problem or who has had anything like this done to their instrument. I am quite keen because it has bothered me for a while, but I also don't want to rush into it because if I get it done it would be hard to undo and I don't want to wreck my pride and joy! Thanks guys.
