Cerveny CEP531 4 Rotary Valve Euphonium
The Cerveny CEP531-4MR 4 Rotary Valve Euphonium is a true European designed oval euphonium. The Cerveny 500 Series euphoniums feature a yellow brass construction with a nickel-silver mouthpipe for a centered tone with excellent response. The Cerveny 351 Euphonium has a lacquer finish and includes a case and mouthpiece.

The 5314MR Oval Euphonium is a truly unique instrument with a design that has been common in Europe for many years. This is called an "oval" euphonium because the bell follows the natural wrap of the tubing and points to the left of the player. This instrument has four front action, mechanical linkage, rotary valves for a quiet yet quick valve response. The large bore gives a full sound and the oval wrap provides an excellent tone color.

I agree with Mike's comments; this is a powerful horn. I just want to recommend the Denis Wick SM3M mouthpiece for this horn. It is a medium shank and is a perfect complement to the horn.

Mike has a good summary of most of the qualities. It is fun horn to play. There is a fine line to walk in adjusting the rotary valves to balance having them too tight and having them too noisy. The shape takes some getting used to (in order) to be able to comfortably hold for long periods. It is indeed easy to move the tuning slide by resting the horn on your leg. I find the horn is, for me, on the flat side. I find that the tuning slide is nearly all the way in... Maybe 1/4 inch left to go. On the whole, this is fine instrument. I highly recommend it.

"CPE531 Euphonium"

I have used this model Cerveny for several years in a community band. Mike's comprehensive review is very accurate. I had problems with the bottom tuning slide getting bumped in until I finally used a strip of heavy tape used for wrapping metal pipe on the slide to keep it from moving in, taking care to warm the horn and tune to an electronic tuner before applying. I have had no problems since. Novice players will be forced to learn new fingerings since some notes (middle C !) cannot be played with fingerings normally used on most 3 valve instuments. Once the 4th valve becomes part of the skill set all notes can be played in tune. Finally, I am hoping that WW&BW will be able to supply me with a set of linkage set screws with lock nuts. Mine are worn and need replacing. I think the horn should be sold with a complete spare set as frequent adjustment is required for optimum performance,

"Beautiful sound but needs an experienced player"

A reasonable choice for the tubist/euphoniumist who prefers rotary valves. The Cerveny is a fine-playing horn with a unique and very pleasant sound. The action suits fast passages as well or better than the high-end Bessons and Yamahas of my experience. Tone is round and full, and has a Wagner-tuba quality you would expect from its size and shape. Easy-playing and difficult to over-blow. However, when blown hard it has an incredibly dominating sound that can overpower even large ensembles. Use your new powers wisely! Intonation will be troublesome for even intermediate players; this is definitely not a beginner's instrument. It tends to be quite sharp, and reveals its Old World manufacturer who is probably used to A=442, or even 445. It doesn't help that when the tuning slide is pulled out to its limits to compensate, it can be easily pushed back in merely by resting on the lap during a page turn. Normal upper-register euphonium intonation challenges (going sharp) are seriously exacerbated with this horn, so beware. Players used to major-brand top-piston euphs not accustomed to using fourth valve other than in the low register will find themselves taking advantage of the easy "pinky" action to reel-in problem notes. The stock mouthpiece is not recommended. Cup is not big enough or deep enough for low register work, and the rim is too thick and too rounded for precise attacks. Be careful choosing replacements, this instrument requires the sometimes hard-to-find "medium" European shank.

community band marches, pop Mariposa, CA

My fellow band members complimented the look of this horn nearly every time I took it out of the case. They also liked the sound--quite full, but pleasant. Mike's review is dead on. I sat down with an electronic tuner when I first got the horn and found fingerings which brought each note into tune. C and F above the staff will be a challenge for most for an hour or so as you learn new fingerings. The tuning slide problem I solved with a piece of 10 mil. pipe tape wrapped around the inside tube so the slide could not bump in. It will hold for months. I agree that the mouthpiece supplied is not a good choice. I use a 6 1/2AL unless the part goes low. Then I use a Wick 4. Be careful with it, though. It will eat your chops!
