E2-LT Euphonium

The E2-LT euphonium represents the lightweight iteration of our esteemed E2 model. Developed through intensive collaboration with Glyn Williams from The Cory Band, this instrument has been refined based on his invaluable feedback, building upon previous collaborations with other prominent banding artists. Tailored to specific options and weight-saving specifications, the E2-LT offers the rich, full-bodied sound of the E2 with enhanced clearance and agility.

Your choice of mouthpiece is extremely personal and very important for playing pleasure. That is why we do not supply a standard mouthpiece with our instruments.

Hybrid design

In short, the E2-LT can be described as a fusion of our E2 and E1 models. The instrument comes standard with a 0.80 brass body combined with a 0.60 red brass bell. The bell shares a 305 mm diameter like our E1, yet like an E2, has a soldered rim for improved focus. The valve block comes from our E2, but is equipped with the lighter E1 bottom caps. Then there’s the heavyweight 4th valve bottom cap for more stability and centre in the tone.

A fully handmade instrument

To claim each instrument is handcrafted is a prodigious understatement. We are proud to be one of the few manufacturers in the world who master this craftsmanship. Driven only by perfection, each part is brought to life by the hands of our incredible instrument artisans.

The bell and body parts of our instruments are carfully made from sheet metal, assuring extreme hardness of the material, besides very thin and uniform wall thicknesses. Qualities that can't be achieved with the hydroforming technique used to produce cheaper instruments found in the market. Do you also opt for quality?

Unparalleled valve manufacturing

Made in the tradition of the legendary Bauerfeind valves, Adams valves are made from stainless steel for fast action and long-lasting durability. All valves begin with hand soldered brass valve ports and are finished on CNC grinding machines to tolerances of .005 mm, the tightest manufactured valve blocks in the industry. Experience the impact of these specifications on your playing comfort. 

Customizable with fix combinations

One of the unique features of the instrument is the fixed pairing of a 0.80 body and 0.60 bell in both the standard Selected Model and custom-built versions. Different finishes, bell materials, a trigger, engraving, and other options are available custom-built instruments. Bell and body materials are always linked in the following combinations: yellow brass – yellow brass, gold brass – gold brass, red brass – yellow brass, sterling silver – gold brass.
