Is W Nirschl a good euphonium brand?

The Nirschl Euphoniums made after 2009 were made in Brazil at the Weril Brass factory and yes, they are good euphoniums. They are well made and built heavy for a nice dark sound like the old English made Besson horns. I would not recommend the Nirschls that were initially made in India. The latest Nirschls made in Brazil were well thought out, designed and engineered in Indiana and Germany. ...

Is there a baritone mute?

There is a such thing as a baritone mute. It is rare to find them in any store and if you see someone using one, they have usually constructed it themselves. Most mutes for baritone look like a very large practice mute for trumpet, and are rarely used by any baritone players. Baritones with curved bells(e.g. bell front concert horn) make it dificult to use mutes, as well as the fact that most Baritone/Euphonium have different bell radii, making a standard mute...

Asked in Brass Instruments, Euphonium

How does the euphonium make sound?

Euphoniums produce sound like all brass instruments do. When a Euphonium player buzzes his/her lips and pushes air into the horn through a mouthpiece, it makes the air start vibrating against the tubes of the horn. The sound is produced through these vibrations, and so the smaller the vibrations the higher the pitch. This is also why a Euphonium or any brass player can not produce sound by simply blowing into the instrument; he/she has to make the air vibrate as well. ...
Asked in Euphonium

What is the difference between the Euphonium and the Baritone?

As with so many questions, the answer is, "It depends." :-) Here's my understanding--in British brass bands, they are two distinct instruments. The big difference is in the degree to which they tend to be "cylindrical" or "conical" in their diameter from mouthpiece to bell. A cylindrical-bore instrument (such as trumpet or trombone) keeps the same diameter throughout much of its length before it reaches the bell flare; a conical-bore instrument (such as horn or tuba) expands in diameter gradually throughout much...

The sound is produced through these vibrations, and so the smaller the vibrations the higher the pitch. Thus, a Euphonium's sound is created by vibrating air moving through the metal tubing.
