Thread: FS: S.E. Shires Custom Series "Solo" Euphonium

  1. #11
    Just saw on Bente's Facebook feed that she may be switching to a Holliston, MA, USA made Shires in the near future - she showed pictures of a horn being crafted with her name on the engraving - wonder if it is a new signature model or just a personalized engraving?

    They do custom engraving for a lot of their artists.

    Did the basic engraving design on their stock horns originate from Eastman? (I assume so since the EEP526 has the same design and that model is pre-Shires acquisition.)

    Is Shires still making the trigger kit available? Just wondering how hard it would be for a person to add a trigger to this without waiting 12 months or more for a horn.
