I have heard that too, but I don't necessarily agree with it.ted said:Composers are starting to write music for Baritones with 4 valves. So it might be a good idea to get one with a 4th valve. (Although I heard that intonation suffers because of it)
Actually, being as I had to return my baritone to my old band before my last uni band practise, I had to scavenge a baritone from the department to use. It turned out I found one of those instruments in their store room. A bit battered and with a few seized-up slides and noisy valves. But once it got going there was a very nice sound to it. Shame it had been left to fall into the state it's in now!tim said:Ive heard the old sovereign (sp) with the blue molded case are some of the nicest and have always hear good things about SA triumphonics but never heard or played one to my knowledge
Because if you play a baritone part in a contest, you get told "Baritone sounds like a Euphonium" in the adjudicator's comments - been there, done that a long time agoAndy_Euph said:Why you need a baritone when you could just upgrade to god's instrument (thats a euph if anyone is wondering).
