Superb Euphonium

Eranos, 28.11.2018
I am from a Brass Band background, but also play Orchestral music (often trombone parts) on it. The build quality is excellent and the full compensating system really makes a difference on some notes.

Using the 4th valve as a 1 and 3 alternative really improves the solidity of the note and tuning I think, noticeable on middle D for example. Top C using 1 instead of 0 really gives a solid more expansive note. The slide comes into its own with notes below middle C - B, A, G and lower are so much more expansive.

The valves are quick and responsive, I removed them, washed the barrels in washing-up liquid and re-oiled them and this improves them as the existing valve oil was a bit thick. I have always done this with new instruments.

I had been playing on a Besson 3-valve recently and found myself overblowing in the upper register when I first played this one. It needs a lighter touch as all good euphoniums do, and the upper register sounds much better.

It is solid and well built, the same qualities you would expect from a much more expensive instrument. I am very glad I bought it.

First euphonium purchase

Olivier528, 02.08.2017
After years of bugle, looking for sounds even more warm and expand the spectrum of a small set, I bought this beautiful instrument. Quick start. I changed the mouthpiece for a Denis Wick SM5, I did not find comfortable the one provided.
The high notes (above 329 Hz, the Fa) require work, I was used to smaller mouths.
The instrument sounds right and is present in the whole.
The carrying case protects well.
The plate of plexi which protects the slide of the trimer could be a little more rounded and more comfortable.
One detail: the white gloves are provided, but it lacks a "cloth" case to protect the silvering of the instrument from the light, which imposes a systematic storage in the cover after the game.
This euphonium is not among the cheapest, but it is very good value for money (specialist opinion)
