    Ok. I've been told by multiple sources now that the JP euphoniums (only asked, specifically, about them) are manufactured in Taiwan...for John Packer specifically/exclusively.

    It’s good to see there are several 3+1 non-compensating options out there. (Yamaha and Besson both have them in their student lines). And several Chinese horns as well.
