Thread: Euphonium Spit Catcher

  1. Euphonium Spit Catcher

    I am looking for a spit catcher for my euphonium. I have B&S 967 Sovereign. Any suggestions on where I can get spit catcher would be helpful.

    If you don't have nipples on the bottom caps, it won't happen.

    Somebody used to make a plastic cup that fit outside all three valve casings, but I haven't seen one of them in a long time.

    If you don't have nipples on the bottom valve caps you can make something yourself. Took me some time to find this post but found it finally. There are two suggestions that may work. One on pg 1 of the thread and another on pg 2.
