Just wondering what euphs or baritones u play on.
Im playing a Yammaha 642 right now. silver plated, 4valve (3 top 1 side), compensating. Very nice for a school instrument.

I play on a King upright 4valve. It truly is an awsome horn.

Whoa! A two-valved baritone?!?! That's crazy! Sort of like the progression of the bugle...sorta' :? ...

I used to play euhponium back in good 'ol 6th grade. I first played trumpet then switched to the euhp then back to the trumpet (for good). I hated playing the euphonium because back in sixth they got no melody parts or what not. Very boring. Now I realize that was in 6th grade and the level of music was very simple but still... Now the euphs at our school get alot (A LOT) of melody and high parts! Very coolio stuff!
