Customizable compensating euphonium.

The E1 euphonium is available in four different thicknesses: 0.50 mm, 0.55 mm, 0.60 mm and 0.70 mm. This offers the player the option of a thin and lighter instrument, offering direct response and a free blowing sound, or for a thicker gauge instrument with a more dense and solid tonal core. The E1 features four compensated piston valves and a 305 mm diameter bell. Call to get your E1 in your preferred specifications.

Design your own E1
Custom areas include thickness, described in the paragraph above, and also bell material. The tradition of fine metalwork is deep in Adams’ instrument-making culture, and among their many points of pride are the quality of the bell materials and of course, their workmanship in turning them. Bell options include:

Yellow Brass: The sound is clear and brilliant at all dynamic levels with a good core and great projection.

Gold Brass: Gold brass is smooth, rich and dark, yet still lively and agile. It responds quickly and has good projection without being quite as brilliant as yellow brass.

Red Brass: The richest, warmest sound available. Higher in copper content, it offers smooth transitions note to note. Articulations are slightly veiled, wide sound shape.

Sterling Silver: Darker and thicker ed at soft to medium volumes. When pushed, high overtones are more present and the result is a wonderful sound with great sparkle.

Finish Options

Raw Brass: No finish. The raw material of the instrument is only polished.
Silver Plated: Livens and energizes the sound slightly.
Gold Plated: Leaves the sound very similar to the original raw state.
Clear Lacquer: Maintains the appearance of the raw material.
Gold Lacquer: A gold sheen is added to the clear lacquer.
Copper Lacquer: A copper sheen is added to the clear lacquer.
Antique Colored Lacquer: Gives the instrument an antique look.

Great resonance, huge power and full tone projection. A warm timbre in all registers.
