The Miraphone M5050 Ambassador Series Professional Compensating Euphonium was developed in cooperation with famed euphonium artist Demondre Thurman. This euphonium features a 4 compensating valve design with a traditional 3 Top and 1 Side action valve set. The M5050 features a specially designed heavyweight receiver to focus the sound and a gold brass mouthpipe for better note slotting. The Miraphone M5050 Ambassador Series Compensating Euphonium includes a case and large shank mouthpiece and is available in silver finish in a standard design (M5050) or with a main tuning slide trigger and guard (M5050T).
The Besson BE967 Euphonium has a 12" diameter bell giving excellent projection. A receiver connected by only a brace as opposed to being completely soldered to the bell allows for free vibration and enhanced tone. Its patented spring damper set creates quieter valve action.
