    Damn, I play two, and you forgot both of them

    Packer and King

    I won't put my Packer in with the chinese stencils because it's a different factory than JinBao, much higher quality, and Just a better instrument over all

    I added King and JP Sterling to the list.

    Technically, Not all packers are sterlings. Mine is the 274, but I guess that's close enough

    While the results on this forum might vary, I have a feeling the two most popular brands overall, in America, are Yamaha and Besson.
    [I]Frost School of Music (UMiami) - BM Euphonium Performance '21


    Besson Prestige 2052 Euphonium - Greg Black NY 3.75
    Courtois 551BHRA Bass Trombone - Greg Black 1 1/4G

    Forgot to mention Geneva and Cerveny.
    Yamaha 642-II Neo Euphonium (2016) - Denis Wick SM4

    OK, I added Cerveny, Geneva, and Kanstul. That's partly why these polls are tricky. Lots of choices today. I would never have thought of Cerveny, for example.

    How about Amati? I rented one for a few years. Great sound. But one of the valves was problematic.
