Thread: Euphonium Testing - Saturday 3rd October 2020

  1. #21
    A 3-valve compensator (at least in the baritone) runs into another problem -- they can't make the compensating tubing short enough, and combinations with the 3rd valve are flat rather than sharp. That makes for a bad situation when playing in a section with a 3-valve non-compensator :-O

  2. Another option is a three valve instrument with a tuning trigger, demonstrated with good effect here.

  3. Micah,

    Would you be willing to take some pictures of the leadpipe area with the brace gone? Any pictures comparing that leadpipe change to the old design?

My new Besson Prestige 2052-2 Euphonium is pretty much the same as the new Gold Lacquer Besson Prestige the only real change is that my new Euphonium is silver plated. I absolutely love the resonant sound of my new Besson Prestige 2052-2 Euphonium. I think both models are quite similar in their sounds with the Gold Lacquer Besson Prestige having a slightly warmer sound than that of my Silver Plated Besson Prestige 2052-2 Euphonium. It was a really hard decision to make but I have always preferred silver plated instruments and I was also very lucky that I was able to make a few requests to Besson which made my decision easier in the end.

    I shall have to update you in a few weeks to let you know how everything is going with my new Euphonium.

    Best Wishes,

  5. Hello everyone,

    Please see the attached images of my new Besson Prestige 2052-2 Euphonium with the new modification to the leadpipe.
