My recommendation: stick with the Bach and keep the mouthpiece safari going instead. I found the Yamaha Xeno to have a surprisingly energetic sound, very rich, muscular, far better sounding than the bach sample.You might consider going back to the 3C you played previously; the rim feel and shape is similar to the 7C, though slightly larger and deeper. As far as your mouthpiece search goes, try to test a benge 5b, if you can find one.They're still stiff enough that I have to pound them down while playing fast passages, causing undesired horn movement.
At the age of nineteen on 8 August 1863 he was elevated to the rank of Captain.
During the Assault on Petersburg on 30 July 1864, Conn was wounded and taken prisoner.
In these recordings, it was clearly the worst sounding.
It really suprised me that I liked the Yamaha best and the Getzen last. I expected the Conn to be high for me because of the bell, but the Yamaha is better.
The assets of UMI were bought by Steinway Musical Instruments in 2000 and in January 2003 were merged with other Steinway properties into a subsidiary called Conn-Selmer. On 14 June 1861 he became a private in Company B, 15th Regiment Indiana Infantry, and shortly afterwards was assigned to a regimental band.
When his enlistment expired he returned to Elkhart, but re-enlisted on 12 December 1863 at Niles, Michigan in Company G, 1st Michigan Sharpshooters. Conn Ltd., sometimes called Conn Instruments or commonly just Conn, was a United States manufacturer of musical instrument incorporated in 1915.Its early business was based primarily on brass instruments, which were manufactured in Elkhart, Indiana.Like the Getzen, this horn will take some getting used to due to its physical characteristics.The ring on the first valve slide interferes with my normal grip.Following are first impressions and a recording: As you may be able to tell from the picture above, this is the "rose brass" model.
