Great features at low price

akta, 29.04.2015
To buy silver plated and compensating valve system euphonium at this low price, I do not know the other sources. If lacquer finish product, there are many surprising low-price goods directly from China, however, silver finished goods are not so low price and quality inspection was generally not enough.
This euphonium produces good response and expected merrow sound for euphonium. Also, an equipped lever for main tuning slide is really useful to adjust sound pitch in playing, and I realized that it is more fundamental and important feature than compensating valve system. In my case, resonance quality through F tube (4th piston) is not fully satisfied, however, I suppose that it is an individual difference of my instrument.

Surprise from the Far East

Andreas986, 19.01.2012
After a long time, I ordered the fully compensated (valves 1-3) silver plated Euphonium 804GP Superior by Thomann. I wanted to buy an Euph for a long time, but I had spared the investment, since it was not my new main instrument, but a sound extension to trombone, baritone, tenorhorn and F-tuba. Since 2 years ago I had already bad experiences with me imported from the Far East, I was very skeptical, however, the price was too tempting. The instrument first supplied by Thomann had a few processing errors, such as too much soldering, not well-grounded valves, silvering and polishing tracks, back to Thomann and an exchange instrument.
The new euphonium was now tested by me and my result here:

- Good workmanship, only minor uncleanings, as well as with German instruments of the middle class
- Very attractive, in the height as in the depth, rather bright sound
- intonation good, tuning triggers with some weak soldering point (hardly needed)
- Something too weak feathers, from Thomann were delivered free Es-Tuba feathers
- Unfortunately no bracket for marching fork
- TOP price-performance ratio, the instrument does not need a comparison with the fully compensated starting Euphoniums of Miraphone and Boosey (which I was allowed to rehearse) from about 4500EUR.

Conclusion: My negative expectations were not fulfilled, the euphonium is worth its money in any case. Thanks to Thomann Moneyback guarantee definitely worth a try.

EDIT:

A few small quirks still:

- The water valve of the main tuning is unfavorably attached to the side of the piano, sometimes wet spots on the shirt or no sound when the instrument is held tightly.
- as an accessory would urgently be a plastic ring for the funnel to stop and a drip catcher for the valves. Too bad they are not.
- The return mechanism for the trigger on the main tuning is too weak.

Still worth the money!
