I've been looking for a decent recreational quality euphonium to play, antcipating the day when my tuba becomes too much of a load to haul to community band.
Price/quality is an issue as I am just playing the euph at a novice level (borrowed horn) and if I do decide to buy, I want a horn I won't outgrow in a few years.
I've been looking at the Jupiter and Weril 4V on various sites and they seem to been in the price range I was considering. So, the question is, what are these horns like (quality, finish tone, realiabilty) as a new horn purchase compared to picking up a used horm such as a Yamaha 321. The Weril and Jupiter tubas are getting favourable reviews (value for money) on this BBS, so how about the euphoniums?
Your advice is appreciated.
