    there are 5 valve rotary euphoniums from the factory, never seen a 4+1 with 4 pistons and one rotor, which is why I made my own. I picked it up and played it last night for the first time in a while...

    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.

    the first time I saw Steven Mead live I was surprised how many times he used 1-3. I think you have to figure out the context usage.

    If your 4th valve C or F is a little flat, that means 2-4 B or...
