The Odyssey Premiere range of instruments has been designed by Peter Pollard and built to the highest standards of workmanship, using superior quality materials and class leading design features to give you the best possible instrument. You can be assured that as much thought, care, emotion, skill and detail as you apply to your music has gone in to the instruments Odyssey have created for you to enjoy.
The Premiere euphonium also includes a 4th Valve, which is attached to the side of the instrument to convert the instrument from Bb to F. This is advantageous for musicians who require a larger range of notes and more scope at the bottom end of the scale. The euphonium also has a compensating system, making it an easier blowing instrument throughout the range of notes.
All Odyssey Premiere brass band instruments now include the famous Denis Wick Classic mouthpiece. The original Classic design gives clarity, precision, and a very easily controlled, centered sound. It also adds more brilliance and richer upper overtones than the convex outer profiles of other designs. Very responsive and easy to play, the Classic has excellent flexibility with a rich tone.
Complete with its own custom designed carry case each instrument is individually serial numbered providing peace of mind and traceability should you wish to insure your treasured instrument. A mouthpiece is included with this instrument so you can start playing straight away.
