    Another option if you struggle is to use alternate fingering. So slurring from C to E treble clef as you described could be done C open to E 3rd valve or 1+2.

    Thank you for the review John and the great videos.

    My Dolce also has the main tuning slide water valve the “wrong way” round to what I have previously been used to. Is your Dolce not like this?

    Very interested to see you reviews. I contemplated the Sinfonico when I purchased my Dolce. I really liked the look of the Sinfonico but the review on the Wessex site says the tone is more of a Tenor...

    The last euphonium I actually owned was a Courtois. It was nice in some areas and not so great in others. I’ve now had the Wessex Dolce for a week and it plays so much better than the Courtois did.

    John Morgan,

    Thank you. Yes, they have changed the case at some point to the ABS type case. Better for protection but nowhere to put your music.
