    yeah, that is weird. I agree, contact the dealer and send them that video. I'm wondering if they changed the felt/cork under the valve cap to something new

    I just got my 274 out, oiled it up and played it. The A os not more than 7-10 flatter than the Bb, which is very normal on any euphonium, and better than most. I can't imagine why it would be so...

    I think if anyone is having problems playing their 274 in tune, they should have a more experienced player play on it and see if those same problems exist for the other person.

    you might want to consider a non compensating instrument with lightweight springs. The valves are lighter than compensating horn. The King 2280 I have has shorter action than my compensating Packer.

    I too like 4 in row more than 3+1, and having started on tuba, I'm a LOT faster with my pinkie.

    here's the weird thing. the 274 is listed as having a 11 inch bell. Mine measures 11 3/4, which is really close to the 12" bell on the 374, if not identical.
