    Years ago I nailed my stand with a solid Dbl. C from about 3 feet. It broke most of the welds. The stand is now deceased and I have to memorize everything. Sympathetic vibrations are common in small rooms. Usually a trumpet in close proximity to a snare drum will do the same thing. Glad you figured it out. Hope your range returns as well. Good luck. You now are aware even though Yamaha horns are awesome, no 2 are identical. Always play a few of the same horns if possible, then buy the one you feel is the best.

    I sent an e-mail last night to Mr. Roy Hempley about my Strad', which i detailed a tale of my youth. I played a 4325S through high school and when i was a senior, i wanted to upgrade to a pro horn and played maybe six or eight Xenos, none of which resonated with me, so i kept the "intermediate". The Xenos all played very similarly apples-to-apples, but neither was one identical to any of the others.

    Did A A Ron get his high G back yet? lol at zombie thrad

    This was 6 years ago - this guy might not be playing the horn at all anymore.

    If you place a few music books on those reverberant Manhassets it deadens them up considerably. Arbans works great. Especially while closed.
    At least that's what I'm told, never having had a music book OR music stand to put to the test.

    That neighbor is probably my wife. She has threatened to call the authorities on me a few times. LOL
