Pros: Great Tone, Extremely Responsive, Great Solo Instrument, Built for high registers
Cons: The Price of it, Some may come Medium Shank so you'll be paying more for mouthpieces

 
Although one of the negative aspects I put on the horn is price and I left price blank is that I borrowed it several times from a friend and the Price is 5000+ Dollars. Willson is one of the finest names in the brass world. Willson has some phenominal Euphonium artists such as Dr. Brian Bowman and Charley Brighton who both play on this magnificent. Today I am going to review one of the greatest horns you can buy, the Willson 2900. When I first took the horn out of the case and played one note on it, it sounded god-like. I NEVER produced a tone that beautiful in my life and that was only a middle-of-the-range Bb. The horn is very responsive, almost if you can produce a light buzz the horn will pick it up and play a tone. Also, I noticed that I was hitting notes that I couldn't before like those High Eb's and F's way above the staff. I HIGHLY recommend the horn...if you can dish out about $6000 for one. If you don't want to dish out the money for one new buy it used! The typical 2900 has a European shank so if you are like me who has a lot of large shank mouthpieces you might wanna go for a 2950, another horn, or order one with a large shank receiver. Overall, Switzerland is good for something! The Willson 2900 Euphonuim is quite possibly one of the best horns you can get.
