Excellent 4 Valve Instrument!
The King 2280 soloist model Euphonium
The King 2280 soloist model euphonium has established a new standard for tonal excellence and evenness of scale-the chief attributes of any serious euphonium. This model's duo-bore design (.580"/14.73mm in the first three valves and .600"/15.24mm in the fourth valve) and 11"/279mm seamless heavy yellow brass bell give it a uniquely lyrical sweetness in the upper register and a majestic resonance in the lower.

Comments about King 2280 Series Euphonium:
This has got to be among the best 4-valve euphoniums available. What a wonderful sound! Big and full and rich at all sound levels, high and low. If your left thumb is long enough to manipulate the trigger, it gives you an almost automatic compensating mechanism as well. Without the use of the trigger it still plays in tune very well. I have never played a euphonium with a bell that "shimmers" like this one, and I've played some very good euphoniums. You have to try it to understand. Somehow this horn helps give me extra confidence playing up high, too. Its just a great design. Great valves, too. Go team USA!
