I will be making some phone calls to dealers and repairers later but thought I would post this anyway as it may serve as a warning to those with Prestige euphoniums. Our principal euphonium player was late to rehearsal last night as the tuning slide trigger on his Prestige euphonium had collapsed. This is certainly not down to neglet as he looks after his instrument like no one else I know! The bit that has broken is the rod connection that is (or was!) attached to the tuning slide itself. He made a call or two yesterday and was quoted 2 months for the spare part. This post is to warn others of the potential for failure of this connection (the new Bessons have a 'push on, pull off' ball and socket type of arrangement) but also to ask if anyone knows of a source for the replacement part that could deliver in 2 days rather than 2 months! Any suggestions gratefully received.
