Mark Cox at CMU

I had a lovely day playing golf with Mark Cox and then testing tubas. Mark tried the J-734, J-744, J-844, J-445, J-345 and the H-808 Euphonium. Mark sounded fantastic on all of them. He confirmed what Don Harry and Gene Pokorny found, the new Helleberg mouthpiece worked well on all tuba models. Central Michigan University has a fantastic facility and Mark is a Marvelous player and teacher. I am honored to have Mark's stamp of approval on my tubas and Euphoniums. Tuba inventory is down to one F and one EEb but the next shipment is due by the end of September. I have a number of compensating Euphoniums on which I can pass a fantastic savings because I need to make room for the next shipment. When the next shipment arrives I will be on the road again. Contact me at bigmouthbrass@gmail.com if you'd like a showing at your college. (I'd love to arrange a Southern tour in the Winter.) pictures: https://picasaweb.google.com/109504607471605137020/DrMarkCoxCentralMichiganUniversity
