The E3 is a complete different instrument than the E1 and E2. It offers a real alternative for those who are looking for a more round and dark instrument. The form of the bell, as also the bootom bow, first bow, and leadpipe are different from the other Adams euphoniums.
Bell: Yellow Brass – 305 mm
Bore: 15 mm – 1st, 2nd, 3rd valve and 16 mm 4th valve
Finish: Silver plated
Yellow Brass: This bell is an excellent mix of materials for all round work as this material is very versatile. The sound is clear and brilliant at all dynamic levels, with a good core and great projection.
Gold Brass: Like the yellow brass bell this is a very versatile material – a near perfect blend of warmth and projection. The gold brass brings a depth to the sound which is very smooth, rich and dark, however it is still a lively and agile instrument. It responds quick and easy.
Sterling Silver: Sterling silver is a very versatile material but also much more dependent on the individual’s particular ability level. Therefore we recommend this bell option for the serious amateur or professional. The general characteristics are the bell is much darke
We offer our bells in a choice of gauge. In very general terms:
– The thinner the gauge of the bell results in a more energized, faster response.
– The ticker the gauge of the bell will result in more stability and density to the sound
Of course this in particular is very much specific to the overall build characterstics of the individual model of our Custom Series instruments.
Raw Brass: This is actually no finish. The raw material of the instrument is only polished.
Silver Plated: This finish will liven and energize the sound slightly.
Gold Plated: This finish will leave the sound very similar to the original raw state.
Clear Lacquer: The instrument keeps the look of the raw material.
Gold Lacquer: A gold tone is added to the clear lacquer.
Copper Lacquer: A copper tone is added to the clear lacquer.
Antique: Colored lacquer which gives the instrument a typical antique look.
Trigger: An additional trigger can be build on every Adams Custom Series euphonium
