1  Horns, Gear, and Equipment / Mouthpieces / Re: No sizes 8-10??? on: May 12, 2017, 01:26AM
I think romera has a very clear numbering system. The first number is for the cup diameter, the letter is for the kind of the mouthpiece (A=alt, J=jazz, T=tenor, B=bass). The second number shows the cup deep. You can choose between two different rim contours. Cup depth and cup contour is displayed on graphics. A great website. I have ordered an alto mouthpiece which will arrived me the next few days. Hope the mouthpiece is so fine as their website :)

Chime in if your experience is different from mine. My flexibility is better on Bach rims than on DW rims. I know it from recent experience, but I don't know why it is so.

...Geezer
Perhabs you like more the rounded rim contour of the Bach. DW have more flat rims

7  Horns, Gear, and Equipment / Mouthpieces / Warburton "Warbonite" Top on: Apr 21, 2017, 02:50AM
Today i received a Warburton "Warbonite" D Top, made of hard rubber. I have the same Top in brass.
When I compare both, the Warbonite has a darker and warmer sound and feels nice on my lips.
I love it from the first moment and it looks like made of dark wood.
GZ Warburton, great work.

The bell of my 34H is far away from the 3rd. If i put my special D-slide on the 34H, the bell is
exactly on the 3rd.

Do someone knows the cup and the throat/bore size of the Warburton Hubiemeister ALTO Trombone Mouthpiece and of the Dave Steinmeyer mouthpiece? I can not find these information on their website.

Which still means at least half of the instrumentation will typically be something other than a trombone, correct?
yes, but in the history, the most instruments in tenor and bass was valve instruments too. This has been change Good!
In the 1950/60 Prof. Ehmann wants a "smaller sound" in the Posaunenchor. So he built together with Finke a line of
cheap pseudo baroque trombones. Not the best way.

Contrary to what the name might lead you to think, the posaunenchor (read "trumpet choir") is more of an encompassing brass choir than a trombone ensemble. There are usually more valved instruments involved than trombones.

This was yesterday. Today, the most Posaunenchor use trumpets for sopran and alto, tenor trombones for the tenor voice
and bass trombones, euphonium and tuba for the bass
