Stylish and Lightweight ABS Body
This instrument not only plays brilliantly, but also looks great! Featuring a sleek black body with white slides, this instrument only weighs 2kg. This is ideal for performers who would otherwise struggle to hold a brass euphonium for prolonged periods of time, as well as advanced players who are searching for a lightweight instrument. The body of this instrument creates an authentic sound, comparable to that of a brass euphonium, meaning it can be easily used in ensembles as well as for individual performances.
Aluminium Valves and Adjustable Slides
The playLITE euphonium gets its hybrid title from its great feeling, fast action aluminium valves. The plastic moulded valve case has a built in aluminium collar, to provide a tight and precise seal, meaning no air leakage and a better projection. As a result, the instrument is very hard wearing and will withstand the rigours of continued use. The aluminium valves are also easy to maintain as this instrument can be lubricated with any standard brass valve oil used on conventional instruments. The already accurate intonation of this euphonium is aided further with fully adjustable valve slides, as well as a main slide for general tuning.
The playLITE euphonium comes as a complete package so that the performer can get playing straight away. Included is a plastic mouthpiece that is suited to all-round playing, however the instrument is also suitable for a standard metal mouthpiece.
The playLITE hybrid euphonium now comes in a hard foam case. To keep your instrument safe and secure whilst travelling and transporting, the included foam case absorbs shock and gives the instrument a snug fit.
