Also, be sure to try out these horns first before you buy them. I suggest going to a conference, like the Army Tuba-Euph workshop at the end of this month.
    I vouch for this too. I am located in SEA and I've gotten my JP274 from Mr. Reeves of Reeves Brass. Compared to the pricing I've received from dealers from Taiwan and Singapore, he has the best deal.

    Mack Brass, Wessex Dolce are definitely amazing choices too!

    SEA = Southeast Asia, in case you were confused like me and initially thought Seattle.

  3. Another factor is the weight of the instrument. I've aged , so I switched from my Yamaha Compensated Euphonium to this Besson because it is sooo much lighter. It's easier to hold without the need for a "pillow" on my knee. Sounds OK, but some intonation problems with a too flat Eb.
