Why I play Adams: Since June 2016 I have played an Adams E1, .55, yellow brass/silver plate euphonium with a tuning trigger. I find the light weight of the instrument to be a considerable advantage. I also enjoy the ease of response; the rich, vibrant, and even sound; smooth slurs; the quietness and comfort of the valves; consistent intonation, and the innovative spirit of the Adams brand. I wish I had this euphonium 20 years ago!
