    Interesting - screw-in receivers for small, medium, and large shank mouthpieces. I don't think I've seen that for any other euphonium. I would think that a euphonium would be designed to have best...

    I also recommend the Hercules stand. It's very stable, no incidents of rubber sticking to the horn or crumbling, and good access to the horn for oiling the valves.
