    Willson 2975 is BACK?!?!

    I just saw today on an instagram post that the willson 2975 will be coming back to manufacturing!! How do we all feel about this?

    I saw that, too (and it's on Facebook). I think it's a good thing. If you want to buy a 3+1 compensating euphonium you can choose good instruments ranging from the Wessex to a Willson (if that is your cup of tea). Seems like a good thing to have a similar option of you want a front-valve version.

    I guess Willson didn't want Wessex to corner the market for aging arthritic euphonium players, like myself.
