    Thank you Fuji, that was a really fascinating video... Amongst all other things, it looks like the Shires custom euphonium series might be based on Q41 rather than on Q40.

    Thank you John for the fine review and video clips.... Sinfonico sounds like a very interesting euphonium in its own right.

    All, it might be worth pointing out that in the Wessex Dolce/Sinfonico review linked above, John Powell might be using the factory-supplied Wessex 4AY mouthpiece. This might be hampering both Dolce's...
