Kessler Custom Compensating Euphounium
Compensating Euphonium @ Student Price!
Kessler Custom instruments are designed with a singular goal: provide customers with affordable, quality instruments. We achieve this by working directly with factories to manufacture instruments to our specifications and thus eliminate the various middle men involved with the music industry. We then sell direct to the end consumer offering a superior performance level compared to the price. Such is the case with our Artist Series Compensating Euphonium; a high end performance level euphonium at an affordable price!
Compensating Euphoniums are essentially a 3 valve instrument with the 4th valve designed to “compensate” for the euphonium’s natural tendancy to go sharp in the lower range. This allows the player to use the same fingerings for the lower octave of the instrument as they would for the upper octave with excellent pitch stability, in lieu of alternate fingerings. So while this is a 4th piston/valve on the instrument, it is not a true “4 valve euphonium” as it does not provide the slightly extended range when depressed.
