A excellent choice for the advanced player!
The Model 551S Bb Euphonium has a completely re-designed bell and superior all round optimization in intonation - especially on the 6th and 3rd partial, with a main tuning slide trigger for adjustment. At the same time, the instrument plays with a previously unexperienced warm and big sound. A water catcher to prevent drips on the player while performing. The 551 is exclusively offered in silver-plated and is optically refined with gold-plated top and bottom valve caps. Includes case and large shank mouthpiece.
A euphonium that looks as good as it sounds.

Comments about Meinl Weston 551S Deluxe Series Compensating Euphonium with Water Catcher and Tuning Trigger:
I love my Meinl Weston 551S. The horn has a great sound, and the low register sounds dark, and very clear and clean. The high register is no different, and is all great as far as range goes. The gold and the silver on the horn look fantastic, and I have no complaints as far as looks go on the horn. The valves are reliable, and have very little resistance. The valves do use a lot of valve-oil though, they tend to run dry quite fast. The sound, looks, and the overall playability of the instrument is very high. As far as I am concerned, the horn is amazing for the price, and the quality is not hindered in any way. I completely recommend this horn to any player out there looking for a good quality horn, for the money that you pay for it.
