    Wanted: Case for 1989 Besson 967 Euphonium

    Not sure about those you mention but I have heard very good things about SKB hard cases. There’s several in the range. Probably worth the extra money to keep a decent instrument safe.

    What’s your favourite instrument and why?

    I agree with you 2T, but then once a trombone player always a trombone player. There is nothing quite like a trio of trombones playing together in harmony. As for my favourite? Quite possibly the Yamaha 613H bass trombone I have now. I’ve had many instruments over the years, both tenor and bass...

    Corrosion on a Lacquer-Finish Trombone

    I agree with MoominDave above, I have bought Virtuosi Bb/F trombone B&H Imperial “flying globe” straight tenor Blessing Artist straight tenor Yamaha YSL 352 tenor Yamaha YBL 613H bass trombone all on eBay.....all untried and they were all good. I sold them all again on eBay for pretty much what...

    Euphonium Gig bag..........any recommendations?

    I have a 1984 B&H Imperial Euphonium that I have in a new model Tom &Will gigbag. It’s fine, but what do people think are better ones? I have no hard case for it as it came without. I walk to band practice (about 10 minutes) so a gig bag is ideal. I have looked at the Fusion bags but are they...

    Euphonium grime gutter wanted

    I guess not, they’re pretty much a universal fit I should have thought. I’ve seen that, but they’re out of stock. The only other one I have seen is a Besson one which costs £55 (eek)

    Euphonium grime gutter wanted

    Hi all, Anyone got a metal grime gutter they are willing to sell? To fit a 1984 Imperial euph. I can’t find one anywhere. I’ve looked at the plastic Bach or Jo-Ral alternatives and they are not what I want. Thanks in advance

    Dates for some T.J. Powell Marches?

    According to my copy of Castell Caerffili it was written for the National Eisteddfod in 1950. Can’t help with the others I’m afraid.

    Euphonium help please

    Thank you for your input folks. I have gone with my gut feeling and bought myself a 1984 Imperial which is in extremely good condition for its age. Just replaced the felts and it’s nigh on perfect for me. And 2nd Tenor.......I will be back. There’s no way on earth I’m parting with my bass trombone!

    Wanted - Imperial or Round Stamp Sovereign euphonium.

    I’m looking to buy myself a Euphonium and have narrowed it down to a compensating Imperial or Round Stamp Sovereign. Must be in low pitch. These would appear to be as rare as hens teeth. If anyone knows where I can acquire one I would be most grateful.

    Euphonium help please

    I’ve just switched from bass trombone to euphonium. The band have lent me a Besson International (BE765) 4 valve non compensating euph whose serial number dates it to 1999. It’s a nice light euph, although tending to be sharp higher up the register (just me perhaps?) I played bumper euph in a...

    Trombone stand for bass trombone

    Thanks all, I've just picked up a 2nd hand heavy duty K&M off ebay and it would seem to be just the job. Still wish I'd not sold the original Hamilton though.....shame their stands are so flimsy by comparison now!
