    Euphonium

    Sovereigns are known for their poor build during the 90’s though if you find a good one then they’re well worth the money. I believe the early prestige’s are a good buy.

    On the subject of bands having matching instruments. I remember conversations of that ilk as a teenager. From what I recall it had more to do with similar tone and therefore blend of the band rather than tuning. Without argument some makes have a brighter sound. My first instrument is piano...

    Buying a euphonium

    Hi, one of my students bought the same instrument about a month ago. I've been taking a mouthpiece and using it to demonstrate rather than take my own (just recovering from surgery and mines a bit heavy to carry round yet ). Got to say it's very good for the price point. Tuning and intonation...
