Taking note of customer feedback, we have made the Wessex compensated euphonium even better with new floating off-the-bell leadpipe at more ergonomic angle, added a revolutionary button water key on the 2nd valve slide where most water collects (a facility not on any other brand of euphonium), provided a water gutter to fit under the valves, and even included a better mouthpiece – all with no price increase. Making the Wessex the best value professional compensated euphonium available.

My beautiful new Dolce euphonium arrived today, (in A1 condition, no Customs damage) and it’s absolutely lovely. Everything fits properly, and with a light dose of Blue Juice the valves feel nice already and I’m sure will be great in a week or two.
The sound is smooth and round, but well-defined, and it speaks clearly with no effort at all. I shall really look forward to getting to know it.
The contrast to my Besson student euph (1065) could hardly be more extreme. I had grown accustomed to a free mid-range and stuffy top, slides that either stuck or dropped out, and rough edges all round.
Don’t know why some folks are snobby about Chinese made instruments – this one is a real winner, and well-worth the wait.
Many thanks for a lovely horn at a great price – and the hat was a nice touch too.
