Thread: Elliott Euphonium - Lyndon Baglin Endorsement!

  1. #1

    Elliott Euphonium - Lyndon Baglin Endorsement!

    I saw that Lyndon Baglin sold his Sterling and is now endorsing this horn:

    Looks like a similar horn, but I know next to nothing about it! (Nice-looking case, though)

    I'm looking on the site at the pictures and some of the specs are... damn.
    5kg (most professional euphoniums are around 4.5-4.7kg), 310mm bell (advertised as 'largest available on the market'... well not the only ones, but yeah that's very big), and the tubing between the main tuning slide and the top bow seems to have the same kind of 'bend' in it that Bessons have as well, I don't know if Sterlings have that as well but I thought it's an interesting design choice, since Yamaha and Willson just have a straight, non-bent tube between the top bow and the main tuning slide.

    So yeah, very big and heavy horn, I'm curious to how it sounds.

    I did a quick Google search - it looks like the horn is manufactured in Hong Kong.

    Interesting that a Sterling artist is now playing a Chinese horn. Does this mean that the Chinese factories are now producing some really high-end euphoniums?

    No way, it's a Hong Kong brand? Wow, now I am curious, anyone heard of Elliott as a brand before or this is the first time this brand appeared on the news?

  5. Tried finding an Elliott being played on utube etc. No luck.

    Looks like standard Jin Bao fare to me, perhaps made with heavier gauge metal and the bell cut larger to Elliott's specs? I'm sure it's a nice playing instrument, but if this is the case it seems overpriced to me.

    correction -- the first photo, the one that was copied to the thread here, looks like a jin bao. The studio photo with the white background. The other ones on the "brass toff" web site, the photos on the red sheet, are a different design instrument altogether. weird.

    This is the photo shown on Elliott Brass's website.

    http://www.elliottbrass.com/index_ep...products_id=15

    Which is the same white background.

    I'm starting to wonder if there are any obscure brands from Taiwan and HK now that might actually be well made, like the Empereurs brand i mentioned before. I recently saw a trombonist in my band having an Empereur case, planning to ask him if he's using their trombone and what he thinks about it.

  9. The Steve Mead travel mute on that site shows 0 dollars. It was also 0 dollars when I added it to cart. Someone should purchase it and see what happens.
