    Baritone review

    Hi Jack, Happy New Year, hope you had as good a Christmas and New Year as you could in these strange times. I thought I’d give you an update of my progress to date. I took your advice and persevered with the 4AY mouthpiece to see if this really was the one to use since this was the one I used...

    Baritone review

    Hi Jack, hope you’re well. I’ve had the JP baritone for a good few weeks now and can give you my opinion on it. Bottom line is that it’s well made and packaged, sounds good and stands up very well to more expensive instruments. Initially I found the valves a little dirty and the 3rd valve...

    Thanks Chris, very enjoyable. I used to enjoy playing Rufford Abbey too as a 4th section test piece in the mid 60s and it certainly brought back many fond memories of playing with Brindle Band in Lancashire. By the way do you know if it is on disc or another form anywhere?

    Baritone review

    Wow thanks 2T. There's a lot to digest there and a lot of good banter too. I have been looking for S/H but like MoominDave says it could be a long time before the right horn turns up somewhere and you don't necessarily know what you're getting. I'll keep looking though and hopefully soon be able...

    Baritone review

    Thanks 2nd tenor. I've read good reviews about the JP373 Sterling horn. It's more expensive than the Odyssey and the Wessex but I guess the only way to find out is to try them - not very easy in the current situation though.

    Baritone review

    Does anyone have any views on the Odyssey OBH1400 baritone? The horn looks good but how does it play? What cheaper end horns do people feel are good value for money? Many thanks C
