    Wanted: Neck receiver for Buescher 400 bari

    I'm trying to fix up an old Buescher 400 bari. When I got it the neck receiver was completely split on one side. We tried brazing the receiver back together but it is still loose/leaking. I've seen...

    Re: Buescher 400 bari neck receiver

    Thanks guys, and I will look into getting another one through ebay. A little off topic for this forum, but the tech I usually use has recently retired. I'm pretty rural, so there isn't really any one...

    Buescher 400 bari neck receiver

    I've just acquired a thoroughly knackered post-Selmer Buescher 400 bari. Just like every other one of these things, it has nobly served in a high school band program. And it has the battle scars to...

    Re: Marching a bari.

    Disaster! The bari is missing. This past week we've had a few practices for the next parade, so I went to get the old "beater" marching horn and it is nowhere to be found. My only guess is that...

    Jupiter Alto - Gurgling low notes

    I have an almost brand new Jupiter 700 Series alto. It's only been used for a few months and all the pads seem to be sealing well, corks look good, etc. The problem is that the notes E-flat through...

    Re: Very flat low A

    Yes, it's brand new. Never been adjusted. I'm fairly certain this is the problem because the school's Yanagisawa does not have this problem. I'll see if I can persuade them to let it see a tech....

    I just got a new digital recorder so hopefully the quality of this one will be a little better. Here's In a Sentimental Mood. This is my first real attempt at improv. I've been studying progressions...

    Re: Sound of America

    Yeah, it is quite expensive but they send a lot of fund-raising stuff with it so hopefully I can get a good portion of it paid with that. And maybe it will give me a convincing argument for the...

    Sound of America

    I have been accepted into the Sound of America honor band for 2008. It's a 25-day European tour. It's quite an investment but it looks like lots of fun. I got an add for it in the mail and figured I...
  11. Re: Post a Clip of You Playing Here!

    Here is Sophisticated Lady. Sorry, this one is even worse quality. I had to put my mediocre PC microphone right up next to my mediocre PC speakers so that it would pick up the sound. Maybe it's time...

    Re: Very flat low A

    Thanks for the replies,
    I don't know anything about proper key heights, but it's a new horn so I'm sure it's possible they aren't quite right. It seems like I would have other intonation problems as...

    Very flat low A

    Low A on my YBS-62 is always about 20-30 cents flat. The B-flat can be perfectly in tune but the A is always flat. I don't have access to another low A horn, but I don't know how it could be the...

    Re: Ian Hendrickson-Smith

    Looks like a Martin baritone to me, still don't know about the mouthpiece though.

    BTW - Just checked into them, awesome stuff!8-)

    Here's Lotus Blossom. I got the Duke Ellington album "And His Mother Called Him Bill" and heard Harry Carney play a beautiful solo on this song. It inspired me to learn it.

    Embouchure fatigue while playing quietly

    This is a problem I have and I'm afraid there might be something wrong with my technique. I don't get fatigued playing at a loud or 'normal' volume, but while playing softly, I run out of breath...

    I guess I have been pretty fortunate as far as school instruments go. This year the school got 2 new YBS-62IIs and 5 or 6 nice Yamaha bass clarinets in addition to a whole new line of marching brass....

    To me it's interesting to hear this side of Ben Webster. I'm used to hearing him play smooth breathy ballads. I love Mulligan's energy here too. And the way he moves when Ben is playing, you can tell...

    I finally got to play one today. They are amazing horns. Low A at pianissimo? No problem. One of the first things I noticed was that the tone seemed alot brighter and edgier on the Yamaha than the...
