    From my understanding, early on in the production of the 956, there was a water key placed on this loop. However, later on in the instrument's production life, this water key was removed.

    Definitely an interesting choice. I have seen numerous orchestras opt for the euphonium if a 'tenorhorn' or equivalent (usually a German rotary-valve baritone) is not available. It certianly makes...

    Another suggestion is Sparke's Fantasy for Euphonium. It is high Grade 8/ATCL level and it sounds fantastic with wind orchestra. It is a bit demanding on range and triple tonguing, but if you can...

    I have always found the valves on German Sovereigns to be very good. Some rate Besson valves as the best on the market. But Besson still seem to lack the overall consistency compared to Yamaha (even...

    However there are a few people who play the new Sovereigns over the Prestige, but not too many. Everyone is different.

    Hi Ron,

    I might chime in here because I currently own a Neo, and I have played on the Custom and Maestro as well. Yes, there is a problem with the high Ab concert on 1st valve. It seems to have...

    Regarding the Yamaha Neo, it has very good intonation. It is the best of all Yamaha euphs (even the Custom) and even without a trigger, it is pretty well spot on. There are a few tendency notes, by...

    If the Sovereign is a large-shank 967 (either B&H Round Stamp or Besson), plays well, and it is in good condition, then I would go with that. A good Sovereign will definitely get you through...

    I have played a few of the new German 967s. They are very well built and the response is probably one of the best I found out of any euphonium model on the market (possibly due to the thinner metal...

    That seems odd that you are having troubles with the mouthpiece sitting correctly, especially that both Yamaha and Schilke are highly reputable brands. It may be best to try some other large shank...
