Thread: NEW Front-Action Compensated Euphonium

    This would be just the thing for playing in a symphonic brass ensemble next to a tubist who is pointing to the left.

  2. I love the concept! The Willson 2975 is something I've long coveted...only Willson I really loved...but it was a lot of coin to justify. If this one plays as good as she looks, you'll have yourself another customer!

    Yes, the 'Festivo' would be perfect in that setting. It could however be problematic in the standard euph section of a band where the popular euph design with bells facing to the right.
    Very intriguing though. Kudos to those for coming up with this design.

  6. Following feedback at ITEC, we have re-routed both the 3rd and 4th valve loops to improve low register response further. Note the 4th valve now goes over above valves and 3rd loop is opened out with wider curves.

    We will be testing the updated design on visiting factory later this month before going into production.

  9. I would be VERY interested in this euph as I primarily play solos in Church and it appears the ergonomics would be much better. What type of "sound" difference are you trying to attain with a different bell?
