shank that is smaller than small?

    I mistakenly bought a half sized euphonium which came without a mouthpiece. I thought it would be an easy fix but boy was I wrong!

    I initially bought a standard Sonata euphonium mouthpiece but that was too large for the receiver. I got some advice from Norman's music suggesting a small trombone mouthpiece might be ok but sadly I had the same result.

    Can anyone suggest a mouthpiece that might fit? My daughter's cornet mouthpiece fits but is too narrow to be of any use.

    Many thanks,

    I'd have a look on - might find something suitable and cheaper too.

    Both mouthpieces came from ebay, the issue I've got is knowing what to buy!

    If you post a photo of your euph, some euphonium boffins will help I'm sure. :)

    If Charlie Brighton @Highams is still on here, he ought to be able to help you - he has an awesome Euphonium collection.

    Well what do you know, now I look closely it is an alto horn!

    Wow, I got that spectacularly wrong then...

    maybe a tenor horn mouthpiece might fit ??

    Now why didn't I think of that! ;-)

    I've now got an appropriate mouthpiece that does indeed fit. Sometimes my own stupidity amazed me!

    An easy mistake to make Mr O'Lard.

    I bought this violin off the internet and I'm having a devil of a job getting it under my chin.
