    FT/S Willson 2975 / Marzan Euphonium

    HI,I am looking to trade this for a Large Bore 3+1 Euphonium. This Euphonium features a 590 -630 progressive bore,11 inch bell, 4 front mounted valves . The mouthpipe has been changed to fit large shank mouthpieces. Up turned tuning slides for easier acces and drainage .1 spit valve off the 4th valve is located in a resevoir of sorts where most of the fluids gather for easy draining.It is in Silver Plate and in excellent condition. I was told this was made at the end of the models production run. According to this site they are available on a custom order basis for $10,600 from Willson thru Getzen. Beautifully playing instrument with a very consistent tone thru out . The larger bores just have a more compatible blow for my preference. Let me know what you have. Besson Prestige,Miraphone 5050,Adams,Yamaha 842 etc..., Also comes with a case in excellent condition.

    Thanks,John McKevitt

    Hi John, good to see you in here. The Willson 2975 is an excellent horn usually preferred by tuba players who want to double on euph due to its front-facing valves. If there is not anyone here interested in here you might want to consider advertising over on tubenet.

    BTW, I had the honor of playing with John in a couple of bands here in S. Florida before he moved to the Atlanta area. Excellent musician! Still remember John playing his contra-bass trombone (double slide) in Fred Dart's band.
