    Hi Christian,

    I sure will. I will most likely continue being a "lurker" on this site.
    Everyone's posts were so helpful, and there's a lot of fun reads and other useful information on here.

    I...

    Hi again everyone,

    In case anyone was curious, the Euphonium we ended up purchasing was the $2900 JP374S Sterling.
    We were fortunate enough to be able to pick up the same exact instrument that...

    So music stores will allow people to do this? I would have thought they wouldn't allow it for hygienic reasons (or, let's say a person has TB or something like that).

    Interesting news about the Wessex EP600. It definitely sounds like an exciting option for others in the near future. I think I may have seen a recent YouTube upload of Matoniz at a trade show...

    The JP274 has now been tested!...

    It's a nice Euphonium. The finish was super nice, and the valves were reasonably quiet... and improved more after adding the included lubricant.
    The tone...

    With all due respect, a $200 pair of shoes is a far cry from a $2,000-$3,000 investment. If it wasn't for this board, I would likely have ended up purchasing a Jupiter or King non-compensating horn....

    The JP did have these "pearl" like toppers on the valves, and the compensating topper piece came off.
    Although this is easily fixed with some epoxy I immediately thought to myself how this would...

    The feeling I get with noisy valves is probably best compared to how a person dresses in a job interview. It is the INITIAL impression that "sets the tone" (pun intended) despite how qualified the...

    Well... since I have not personally heard either the Yamaha or the Besson, I could easily switch my interpretation and not feel bad :-)
    The Wesson had a softer "sweet dark" tone, whereas the JP...
  10. Okay folks, Drum roll... The Higgens'...

    Okay folks,

    Drum roll...

    The Higgens' approved JP374:

    First off, the instrument was brand-spanking new and from head to toe the finish was pristine and sparkling! I examined the finish very...

    Today we are just coming back from a VERY successful trip from The Horn Guys! What an incredible hole-in-the-wall store that is!!! They must have at least $1/2 million dollars of inventory. Our...

    Sorry to hear your grandson doesn’t have time to practice/play much these days. I have a feeling once he finishes college and he settles with his life, his love for music will continue and he’ll come...

    Rick - I looked at the H&W Brass Savers. I found the link to various brass instruments and saw they made one for Baritone, which I'm guessing should be adequate for Euphonium as well.

    These tools...

    So if the instrument is soaked under water, it shouldn't be an issue since remaining water droplets will evaporate by way of open air?

    Maybe give the instrument a strong blow to push out most of...

    The pump spray bottle sounds like a great idea. Aerosols can (and do) get clogged. At least the pump heads can either be soaked in water to unclog, or simply taken off.
    A pump seems to be the...

    I was also curious about this brass instrument cleaning video:

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a2Ki5dZ6oPw

    The results from this clip look fantastic. Is there any reason to suspect this is not...

    I sure hope that's not the case with CBU, but I do know many band directors can be quite egotistical. :-\

    Hello Mark,

    I'm so glad I read your post. We are also looking into our first purchase of a Euphonium for our son entering college.
    So far we have looked at the Wessex Dolce and the Eastman...

    Hi Christian,

    Yes - it is also made in China as well. Probably another JINBAO brand I'm guessing. It's one of the more expensive (if not most expensive) Chinese Euphoniums. I just didn't see...

    Just got back from a music store in Redlands that had the Eastman EEP426 non-compensating Euphonium in stock.

    The horn had a very balanced and neutral type of sound. Nothing exciting, but nothing...

    Her store is out in the U.K. though, isn't that right? Wouldn't that make the cost and shipping more expensive?
    Another user also raves about this company and Jenny's service - so it's worth...

    Hi Rick,

    Well - good to know the YEP641 is large shank (I incorrectly assumed it was small).
    Since the MackBrass is a clone of the 641/642 models, no doubt Dave Warden is spot on about MackBrass...

    Hello,

    Thanks for the Paul Riggett name! How funny I said "some U.K. brass guru" and all I had to do was re-read the first response you gave (my apologies - lol).
    Also thanks for the comment...
  24. Hey there Rick! I appreciate the input about...

    Hey there Rick!

    I appreciate the input about the fair price for a YEP641. I would definitely feel much more comfortable with $3500 over $4 grand.
    I inquired about the instrument to see if we...

    Hello John,

    Thanks for the compliments on the initial overview. Let me just state it was compiled from about 30 or so hours of online research across many different brands.
