King 2280 Series EuphoniumThe King 2280 soloist model EuphoniumThe King 2280 soloist model euphonium has established a new standard for tonal excellence and evenness of scale-the chief attributes of any serious euphonium. This model's duo-bore design (.580"/14.73mm in the first three valves and .600"/15.24mm in the fourth valve) and 11"/279mm seamless heavy yellow brass bell give it a uniquely lyrical sweetness in the upper register and a majestic resonance in the lower.

I've play tested two of these horns, the now discontinued Conn 19I (exact twin) and a silver plated 2280.
On the plus side: 1)the horn has nice sound, 2)is good for taller players, 3) has large shank mouthpiece receiver 4)has water keys on the 1st and 3rd valve tubing (hard to find in a non- autocompensated horn) and 5)has excellent valve action.
On the minus side: 1)the spring slide tuner that Mr. Rowe mentioned is on the 3rd valve (I would rather see it on the 4th valve tubing) and has no adjustable home position, the 4th valve tubing does however have upper and lower slides which could be helpful for intonation 2)the main water key is directly over the base of the horn, 3)horn will tip over if it is set down inverted.
This Horn is one awesome peice of work. My school only has ONE of these and I got to use it! The school has owned it for about Five years but no one ever used it. The 2nd valve slide has some buildup on it but it's right where it needs to be, the 3rd valve slide's ring was missing, so I "borrowed" one from one of our VBstrads. Like everyone else I'm not too happy about the Main water valve being directly over the body, but oh well. It plays like a dream, I recently had a solo in My school's Holiday show, and it was just so beautiful sounding on a 2280. this horn is a 10/10!!!
I've owned a (lacquer) 2280 since 1982 in my role as a university low brass teacher. The instrument doesn't offer all the niceties of the highest-end compensating instruments, but I've always felt mine to be a good value, worthy of a careful look by anyone who would be considering its competitors in that price bracket (Yamaha, etc.). Mine has proven very durable, and with reasonable care (valve lubrication, cleaning) has held up very nicely in frequent use. It does indeed have a free-blowing, warm tone--I would caution players against feeling that they *have* to pair it with a huge mouthpiece. Intonation: quite manageable. I played a newer one recently, and it pretty much seemed "just like mine" rather than oddly different. Mine has metal valve guides, so I can't speak to the plastic that others comment on. I wouldn't want anyone to buy it without a play-test, but would recommend they give it serious consideration.
This is the euphonium that I played on throughout my high school career. I loved this euphonium and was very reluctant to have to leave it behind. The metal used is rather heavy and allows for a big dark sound. The high notes and low notes are extremely clear and round--while sustaining high notes I sometimes felt the vibrations of the bell as the notes sang out, something I have yet to be able to do on my new Yamaha 642S. Similarly, in comparison with the Yamaha 321, despite the lesser valves, the King 2280 is hands down the better horn for the younger musician. The large shank mouthpiece receiver and the strong core sound of this euphonium make it great not only for the intermediate player, but could certainly carry a semi-pro euphonist towards musical glory!! GREAT HORN!!
I have owned a King 2280 for the last five years. In the last year I moved to a compensating euphonium; however, I will never get rid of my King. In fact, I continue to use my King on occasion. The King euphonium offers a very rich, big sound in all its registers, something many other euphoniums struggle to achieve. The player experiences a sense of openness in all its registers, making playing in the higher tessitura just as easy as playing low. Even though it is not a compensating system, this is a horn you can truly keep forever, it is suited for the advanced high school musician up through the studying college student and beyond.
