    Just bought a euphonium from ebay, just want one to have a play aroound with as i mainly play trumpet.
    What do you think, i thought i wasnt a bad price for an older make.
    I guess its more of a student model? dont know much about euphs.
    Thinking of getting a denis wick mouth piece for it?

    does any one have any advice?

    What model is it? How much did you pay?

    Riki McDonnell advised me to use Denis Wick 4L when I was going from cornet to euph. He says good range and good sound, obviously his personal preference.

    - why a euph? If you're a trumpet player it seems an odd choice! :confused:

    The Denis Wick is a 4AL not a 4L, my mistake.

    Seems ok for the price
    I just inherited a Boosey and co 4 valve and spent the equivalent of 550 pounds getting it up to sratch, was my Grandfathers so I concider it well worth it.

    Trumpets make good lamp stands give me a genuine BB instrument any day.

    Not every brass player wants to play in brass bands.
