  1. Recommended Euphonioum Mouthpieces

    The most common mouthpieces in use for euphoniums are made by Wick, Bach, and Schilke. I personally like the Wick 4A because it has an open, singing sound. However, as you sound gets more open, you will hear a little more "fuzz" close up. From the audience's seats it should not be a problem.
