        I'm fairly certain I saw where Misa plays a newer horn that is gold lacquered. I am not sure which Besson model but most likely it's still the 967.

          Amy Schumaker Bliss is playing a Besson 2051 with free floating lead pipe. It may be the only one in existence.

            I will try and update this post with some more Euphonium players specifications in the near future!

            Best Wishes,

              Just remembered a couple more (unless they've switched recently) - Tormod Flaten and Bastien Baumet both play Sovereigns. One thing I'd be interested in finding out is if any well-known Japanese players play on anything other than Yamaha (besides Misa).

                Hello everyone,

                I have to admit that I am rather interested to use the information featured within this threat to try and find some common themes and trends linking each Euphonium player for example it could be instrument brand or Euphonium players changing their mouthpieces to smaller or larger mouthpieces!

                I think this information would be really useful especially when informing potential decisions for ourselves at Euphonium players!

                I look forward to updating this thread again in the near future!

                Best Wishes,

                  From what I remember, I think Willson and Besson seem to have a pretty strong presence among professional players there. Mai Kokubo, Mitsuru Saito, Arisa Makita, Yukino Hamaoka, Yuki Yamazaki, Ayaka Sato, Natsumi Minobe, & Ayano Iwakuro all play on Willson, I think a mix of 2900s and 2950s? Ayaka Sato has her own custom 2950, the TA2950UKAS-L.

                  For Besson, Shoichiro Hokazono plays a Prestige I think, or a special JDM version of the Sovereign 968 (used to be on a Yamaha Custom for a bit). Toru Miura, Ryuji Ushigami, Jun Yamaoka, Yuko Kamata, Hiromasa Kimura, Rie Kaizuka, Yosuke Ebata, Hidenori Arai, Akira Kimura, Natsuhiro Aoyama, and Yuki Iida are on either Sovereigns or Prestiges.

                  For Adams, the only one I can think of at moment is Ryunosuke-Pepe Abe.

                  (There are others I'm forgetting at the moment.)

                    I have to admit that I am rather curious to know how much this information will change in the future!
