    Yorkshire euph looking for a challenge

    How do. As you can see from my sig and previous experience, I've been playing euph a long time, and I'm currently top euph at the Band of the Yorkshire Regiment. I recently graduated from Huddersfield Uni where I was dumped on the solo seat (in the brass band) back in first year, keeping that...

    Your own or band supplied instruments?

    Interesting topic. I'm glad I've never been asked to play a band's instrument - on the occasions I've tried them, they've been nowhere near the quality of my Sterling. That said, I do use the BotYR's 967 for marching and outside gigs, partly to protect my own instrument, but also for the weight...

    Old or New Solo's?

    It varies depending on the audience. I personally tend to prefer stuff that, well, anything that's not an air varie, but that's just what's appropriate sometimes. My Captain likes to programme euph solos that are either well-known or very relaxing, so the audience has a sort of break from...

    Sold/Expired BE967 euphonium for sale

    Bobobear, I discovered Sterlings. They're more in the region of £4-5000 though, so the euph I'm selling is for those on a budget ;)

    Euph Mouthpieces

    Or Midnight Euphonium is pretty good, jazzy n stuffs. I play on an SM4 - I still have a Wick, and I play it when my SM's in the shop (because I keep dropping it :$) but it just doesn't have as good a sound for me. It also doesn't feel as comfortable since it's kind of sharper. I <3 my SM4 :)

    Things were better in the old days...

    We did. At the HCMF, four brass bands clubbed together to play a huge piece by Alvin Curran at the Night of the Unexpected. It was wonderful. And loud. Badly transcribed from wind band (since there were still trumpet and tuba parts!?), but still really fun to play. Well, not quite, because all...

    Hand Signals...

    It's a weird one - I asked our conducting tutor about hand signals for repeats just the other day, and he said he wouldn't normally use any, unless it was to put up two fingers for second time, say. But I seem to recall several conductors I've had using a flat hand with the fingers horizontal...
