    I forget what facing I was playing on the bass, but it was at least a F or a G. They used to make these odd facings, but I don't know if they do currently.

    Thanks for the help - as soon as I saw it written out, it was a head slap moment - how could I have forgotten that Italianate name?

    The one thing that I recall about the mechanism was the "slop"...

    Yeah. I've saved a copy with an eye towards preparing a reasoned, sourced reply. Just on anecdotal evidence (plus my encounters with Selmer A basses, two different ones), I get the feeling that it...

    By the way, my Buffet Albert horn was a low pitch instrument, even though it was an old horn. My grandfather was particular about adhering to the modern system as he played in pit orchestras over in...

    As always, photos would help a lot here.

    Some questions:

    To what point is the horn keyed to, low E or low Eb?

    What is the horn's serial number?

    Are there any open finger holes on the...

    For almost all jobs, I always ended with Funny How Time Slips Away. Sure, it was country (and an Elvis hit to boot), but it was a nice slow dance for those who wanted to cling to their spouse/sig...

    Well, I've gotten to the point where I'm going to try to assemble a new group and start in again. Maybe not as a musician, as I still haven't found a synth solution for the Yamaha wind synth stick,...

    That depends. Horns you can buy on model and advise with little risk, as long as they are in good repair..Mouthpieces are better selected after a trial, which retailer will allow (if you take the...

    One would like to hear it for oneself. I see that the discoverer was looking for an aluminum flute originally. But, one person's great might be another's meh.

    Pretty unique, and a Boehm instrument to boot - not the norm from a German maker.

    However, the location would give me pause. I've seen great horns from Italy and other "remote" countries, and I've...
