The close cooperation with Matt Tropman, Euphonium-Soloist of the 'Brass Band of Battle Creek' led to a completely new soloist Euphonium in the Meinl Weston product range. Matt Tropman, former principal euphonium player at the United States Marine Band in Washington DC now Tuba / Euphonium instructor at the University of the Pacific in Stockton, California.
Featuring a comletely new design of the body and the bell, the Meinl Weston 751 Phoenix is handmade at the Meinl Weston company in Geretsried, south of Munich. The bottom bow and the first branch are made of sheet metal for enhanced response. As Matt has always paid special attention to the ergonomic design of the instrument, especially the position of the 4th valve has been altered to assure maximum comfort.
