This student instrument is the perfect first step for playing Euphonium. The tone is rich and warm, valves have a positive action and slides move with ease. It has a couple of minor dinks but it is in overall lovely cosmetic condition.. It has had a full service including descale, chemical clean and all consumables replaced. It has its original mouthpiece and hard case both of which are in superb condition. With the price of these new being what they are this is great value.
