Thread: What euphonium would you buy if money were no object?

  1. #11
    I would wanna buy a Yamaha 642 II Neo, a Geneva Symphony or Cardinal, and a Besson Sovereign baritone horn

    One of every single model available. Then I'd figure out which one suits me the best. Then I'd give the rest away.

    E - Well... Maybe I'd hold onto two 😆

    It's just kind of hard to improve on perfection (or close to it), isn't it?

    As far as I can tell, an E3 without a special bell is very reasonably priced at the professional level. Even with the SS bell its comparable to a Prestige or Willson.

    Per their website, 13,300 Swiss francs, and the CHF is about on parity with USD these days.

    I just checked the conversion: $13,434. And it doesn't even have any water valves!

    At that price, I fully expect the Inderbiden to be fully self-tuning with the ability to bend the pitch a full 360 degrees and allow me to play like Mr. Werden and Mr. Mead.

  8. Probably also the Yamaha YEP-642TSII Neo with Trigger. I've got a few Yamaha horns, and they always are well made and dependable.
    Sterling / Perantucci 1065HGS Euphonium, Yamaha YBB-631S BBb Tuba, and a bunch of trombones.

    I'll tell y'all one thing for dang sure -- it would have a trigger!
    I thought along the same lines. If money wasnt an issue then I should be able to travel as well. I guess if I absolutely HAD to make a blind choice, Id probably give in to sentiment like an idiot and also go for the Yamaha 642 II Neo. My first euph was a Yam, my flute is a Yam, heck even the baby grand piano my mom has owned since before I was born is a Yam. The Yamaha name just has this familiar, nostalgic allure.

    Since the name has been raised, has ANYONE on the forum had a chance to blow on an Inderbiden? Unless I'm forgetting something, I don't recall ever hearing a first-hand report.
    I tried to buy one back in 2012, but ultimately the seller decided he wanted to keep it. Here's what he had to say about it:
    I bought the horn in 2007/2008 I think. I have used alot in the start but in my job as the one euphonium player in 40 persons military band, my old Wilson and Yamaha 642NEO seems to work better. Blends better with the tubas and trombones [...] The horn is very flexible and a dream to play. Somewhat light in response but sings rich, deep and warm.
