    You can't go wrong with the Dennis Wick 4AL either.

    That would be my choice. It depends on the kind of sound you like. The 51D is a very focused and dark sound. The 4AL is a broader, more open sound. Both are widely-used in the euphonium world.

    Thank you, I appreciate the suggestion and your time in replying.

    Thank you for your detailed reply, and HUGE thanks for this forum. It is incredibly helpful and encouraging to ask questions about an instrument… and wake up to answers the next morning from other musicians. Since I don't know any Euphonium player to ask except through this forum, it is especially helpful. THANK YOU.

    Running/hosting the forum is a bit expensive and time consuming, but you just expressed one of the reasons I am enthused to do it! The prompt Q&A is a great feature, but I also enjoy having all the information from years past archived here. Most of the answers are timeless.
