Pros: Great Tone, Easy To Tune, Can play really heavy and really light, Large Shank, Best Intermediate horn on the Market
Cons: The Spring Loaded 3rd Valve, Thumb Ring, Collects water fast, 4th Slide falls out, Heavy

 
This is a review for the newer Bach B1110 Euphonium which resembles a King 2280. Bach is a fine brass company. Their Stradivarius trumpets and trombones are used by most serious students in middle through college level programs. However Bach doesn't make Stradivarius Euphoniums, This comes close though. The B1110 is one of the most responsive horns I've played on. It's beautiful tone makes it a great solo Instrument and it gives any low brass section a "warmer" sound. Since the euphonium has a wide variety of parts it plays (runs, low parts, solos, ect.), it can easily adapt from playing low, demonic chords to high flying, fluttering runs. Unlike the Yamaha, The Bach B1110 is Large shank so you can use large shank mouthpieces like the Bowman Models or the Mead models to make it sound more like a professional model horn. I can't really compare it to the Willson Intermediate horn but this is, in my opinion, the best Intermediate horn out there. Now there is some bad to the horn such as the Third Valve slide being spring loaded so you have to pull it out if you want to get those Db's and Gb's in tune. The bottom of the 4th Valve slide always falls out about 30% of the time you play. The Horn tends to collect water at a fast pace. Since most Intermediate horns have the little tube behind the valves for better precision, this horn just has a thumb ring which will cause some getting used to. The horn is fairly heavy, so it might give your arms a little bit of strain when doing a standing solo. Overall, this is one of the finest horns out there. I don't understand why Bach doesn't go all the way with compensating Euphoniums but only time could tell us if we will see Bach Euphoniums with the name Stradivarius and has a compensating system in the Future.

I don't understand this review. My experience with this instrument is that it's identical to the Yamaha 321. From the review it sounds like a description of a King 2280.

Read the first line of the review, dope! The review is based on the NEWER 1110 which is a KING 2280 CLONE.

Pros: Big, warm sound
Cons:

 
In some years Bach had Yamaha make stencil horns from the YEP 321, these were small bore, inline, 4 valve horns. Later these Bach euphs were based on the King 4-valve in-line euphonium and had a large bore. Mine has a large bore, and so probably has a larger sound than the Yamaha stencil horns. Mine has both volume and finesse. Its probably as good a euph as you'll find that is not compensating. Its a fine intermediate euph. I like to use a Dennis Wick mouthpiece that makes it sound much like a pro level horn. I'm proud that it is made in the USA, too.
