    Itís hard to make a decision on an instrument for someone else but from what youíve said above it would appear that the Geneva was the better of the 3 you tested. Sound is sometimes hard...

    Nice playing Micah and it sounds and looks like theyíve done an excellent job of restoring your euphonium.

    I’ve only had the Dolce for 3 months so not long enough to comment on wear and tear yet.

    I did go back and forth between the Dolce and Sinfonica when looking to buy but not being in a band at the...

    Another option if you struggle is to use alternate fingering. So slurring from C to E treble clef as you described could be done C open to E 3rd valve or 1+2.

    Hi John, if I remember correctly, you did have the longer slide but it was damaged so you couldn’t test it. You made mention of it in your review:

    The tuning slides all move well, and the...

    Both sound great but the DC4 is slightly better. It’s hard to say if this is just mouthpiece affecting the sound though as I get the feeling you enjoy playing on the DC4 better than the 4AL.

    Dom,

    I used to use a DW 3AL as it felt right and I really liked the sound I could produce but I found my articulation wasn’t as crisp as I would have liked. On a 4AL I didn’t like the sound as...

    Thank you for the review John and the great videos.

    My Dolce also has the main tuning slide water valve the “wrong way” round to what I have previously been used to. Is your Dolce not like this?

    Very interested to see you reviews. I contemplated the Sinfonico when I purchased my Dolce. I really liked the look of the Sinfonico but the review on the Wessex site says the tone is more of a Tenor...

    The last euphonium I actually owned was a Courtois. It was nice in some areas and not so great in others. I’ve now had the Wessex Dolce for a week and it plays so much better than the Courtois did.

    Michael, that’s going to be a long 12-14 weeks. I’m sure it will be worth it when it eventually arrives.

    John Morgan,

    Thank you. Yes, they have changed the case at some point to the ABS type case. Better for protection but nowhere to put your music.

    The valves seem a bit better already so should...

    Thank you and yes, I agree with your comments. It probably is the best place to have a blemish if you’re going to have one.

    New Wessex Dolce ordered.

    Yes Mike,

    I believe it has been delayed due to one of the guys at the factory who was heavily involved with production suddenly passing away and further delayed by covid shutting everything down.
