In January of 2022 I decided to make the move to Adams.
I had tried Adams in the past and was always impressed by their instruments. The way they are hand made, and all under one roof and with the very best materials. The company has a very fine name in the world of orchestral percussion and this name is now becoming synonymous with their brass instruments too. 
I tested a number of Euphoniums and I have been playing an E1 .70 since my visit. This instrument really can sing over a band. As you can see I decided to go with the vintage finish as I think it looks classy (and nobody else plays on a euphonium that looks like this). 
I am incredibly excited about my journey with the Adams brand and am hopeful that in the near future, the name will become the standard for euphoniums in the brass band. 



 

My mouthpiece (R4), about which I am asked many questions, is a Patrik Randefalk mouthpiece. Patrik is a very fine euphonium player from Norway and he was the Principal Euphonium player at Eikanger-Bjørsvik Musikklag Brass Band. I have known Patrik for some time now and I trust in his mouthpieces. My R4 teamed with my Adams euphonium is a match made in heaven.
