    Hi Don,

    Welcome to the forum. So sorry to hear about your stroke.

    I remember that Don Oberloh modified a King euphonium so it could be played left handed. Don does absolutely beautiful work. He's located in Seattle, WA. Here's a link with some pictures of completed projects. Scroll down about half way and you'll see a King 4v euph modified to play with left hand. What I like about this mod is that Don took a normally left-facing euph - which is opposite direction of the section - then when modified it faces right to fit in with other right-facing euphs.
