Excellent instrument
chipetke 08.10.2020
I used to play the oval baritone in windband. This is my first euphonium, but I'm absolutely pleased with the instrument. Excellent response, warm, sweet tone, fast valves... I prefer it's tone over any previously used oval baritones/tenorhorns. I've fallen in love again with this instrument.

On the contrary, there is one little annoying thing, the screw holding in the metal rod for the plexi slideguard is quiet easy to unscrew during performance (my belly is in the way) and used to fall out.

All-in-all, it's a very good instrument, I'm happy with the purchase.

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.

Plays as if it's Worth Much More

For the price of the instrument, it is a terrific option. I would recommend this instrument highly to anyone looking for a cheaper alternative to a top-of-the-line professional instrument.

Superb horn!
tapemyeyes 16.08.2020
Very good solid piece of instrument, satisfying both at the low and high register, weight is a pro and a con i think at the same time ; intonation surprisingly good. Bang for the buck.
