    Almost anything can be called "art." However, I'd call this more "technical achievement."

    As far as I'm aware, the latest instrument discovery was the Viola Organista, which was invented by...

    Ergo mechanical keyboards are pretty expensive. The cheapest one I saw was $250. (Brown Cherry MX switches.) That's also an ultra-niche market.

    I'm not a real typist. I generally use three or...

    Mechanical Keyboards

    I wrote an article here few moths back where I waxed prosaic about mechanical computer keyboards. I got an e-mail from one of the companies I bought a keyboard from, Corsair. They've got the...

    I was a clarinet and sax player. Oddly, the only brasswind I was ever able to make a sound out of is the French horn. However, if someone gave me an ophicleide, I'd probably try harder to play it...

    Possibly the rarest sax that was on eBay, this Raymond Dubois Essor. Needs some work, but you've gotta love the additional keywork, the milled keys, and the adjustable thumbrest. It sold for 705...

    One of the unfortunate things is the "Champion" name, like "Solist," was used by a bunch of manufacturers. FX Huller's nice in that they seem to always use that "VO" bell-to-body brace and they have...

    FX Huller: Queen

    It's ugly, but interesting. You don't see many FX Huller horns and this is a model I hadn't heard of. eBay ad. Gallery.

    Tidbit I found:

    Source.

    I'd encourage folks to visit this 'site, regardless of whether you're interested in Migma, etc. I had never heard of octagonal trumpets before landing on this page.

    You're welcome. I was searching for "Couesnon Catalogue PDF" and, the US spelling, too: "Couesnon Catalog PDF."

    I found a 1915 catalog for Sherman, Clay & Co., a San Francisco music store. They sold Couesnons, along with bunches of other horns; it's a 116 page catalog. The catalog doesn't mention the...

    An SRB or one of the Leblanc System horns?

    I have a small article, lots of links, and lots of links to pics on my old blog. I have links to fingering charts and stuff there, too.

    Very nice. Thanks much!

    There are a lot of great things in that catalog. I think I need to translate that little blurb about DuPaquier. It's also cool to see that Couesnon sold contrabass...

    This is why someone that can actually read French is better than a guy that can read Latin that's trying to read French. Much appreciated.

    That's a possibility. I really didn't count, because I was needing to run. I just thought, "Oooh. Cool horn. Low A." However, I'd *think* the bell would need to be longer for a G. I've seen a...
