    When did Tom McGrady start carrying this? I thought he preferred to stick to the EU1150S as the only euphonium he would stock. Nice to see an option there (smile).

    Care to share the names and authors of a few of those "traditional harmony/theory books and workbooks"? For those of us interested in doing some "independent study of theory on our own."

    Bugle style horns are typically used when standing and marching. The only folks I have seen using them are marching bands or drum and bugle corps. No orchestras, wind bands, or other concert music...

    So is the horn silver finish, or traditional lacquered brass? The pictures make it difficult to tell. Does the $1350 include the shipping within the US? Are you willing to ship overseas?

    Besson may be the Stradivarius of euphoniums, but if the Geneva is the horn of your heart, which it sounds like it/she is, make it/her the horn that you keep. There is no shame in that.
