The Adams E1 euphonium is a class-leading combination of beautiful design and supreme performance. Handcrafted with high-quality materials and sophisticated technique you will experience maximum performing pleasure.
The first thing you'll notice when you play the E1 is that it is a very free blowing instrument, perfectly in tune. The instrument has been developed for musicians who, in addition to playing in a section, also like to take on solo challenges and gives a lot of room to color their tone. It makes the E1 a very expressive instrument with a clear, open sound.

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.
The standard Selected Model comes as standard with a 0.60 gauge yellow brass, silver plated bell or with a sterling silver bell providing the richest spectrum of overtones. Four fully compensating valves and a 305mm bell. A further trigger can be added as a custom option.
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 most tight manufactured valve blocks in the industry. Experience the impact of these specifications on your playing comfort.
