    Tuyama TEU-376 Compensating Euphonium (4 pistons) Silver Plated

    Saw this on EBay from TOTALBRASS a company in Cologne Germany. Evidently the horn is made in China and tested in germany.

    Does anyone know anything about this horn or the company?

    Or new stencils from the same Chinese factories.

    Tuyama TEU-376 Compensating Euphonium (4 pistons) Silver Plated

    Perhaps more to the point, while I don't know this particular company, if this is yet another Jin Bao stencil, Mack Brass has them in silver for $895 if you're in the US, and Wessex tubas I think has them for under $1500 (not sure of the exchange rate) if you're in Europe (I'm considering shipping).

    Yes, I've told to both the importer for Germany in Cologne and the repairman, who designed the Eastman Euphoniums (but not Tuyama) for the German market. The locations of both brands "Eastman" and "Tuyama" are the same. The importer said, that Eastman is in a steady process of improvement with the help of this repairman (ho has a very good image here), while the Tuyama instruments are sold via Ebay, when they come from China.

    I'd recommend to compare the Ebay auctions of the brands, Eastman compensator 1800 €, Tuyama compansator 1000 € to see, that Tuyama is a cheap stencil horn and Eastman, perhaps, a better one.
