  • JP374ST Review

    By: ,

    My new JP374ST arrived a few weeks ago very well packaged. Communications with JP were great: clear and helpful by 'phone and email.
    On unpacking it my immediate impressions were that it is a fine looking instrument and heavier than any other euphonium I have held. There is serious metal in it! (80:20 copper:zinc brass). It is solidly constructed with high quality joints and stays. The silver finish is immaculate. It is now well played in after much practice and oiling of valves - good quality light valve oil and slide grease is supplied. I found more sonorous, fuller, darker sounds throughout the range with my usual DW Ultra 4 mouthpiece than with the mouthpiece supplied. The valves have very quick return action and are very quiet. The response is excellent in all registers and notes slot easily with the exception of high C# above treble clef stave which has always been a problem pitch for me - C and D are fine. Tuning is generally very good with the usual slight sharpness of higher F, F# and G - easily corrected with the well designed trigger. Low notes below the stave using 4th valve also need some trigger.
    It's very "free blowing": a wide dynamic range is possible without any distortion and I've found quick articulations are clear and immediate in ALL registers.
    In the (brass) bandroom it blends well with the other instruments but sails over the top when required in solo passages. I haven't tried it with a wind band yet but I anticipate it will blend well with clarinets, saxes and horns without dominating.
    The case is well made and gives more than adequate protection without being too heavy.
    In conclusion, the JP374ST is a pleasure to play and represents great value for the price. I am very satisfied with my new euphonium and can confidently recommend it.

    By: ,

    Just received my new JP374ST Euphonium, very happy with it, so much easier to play than my 18 year old Besson Prestige and intonation seems better.
    So happy in fact that I have just ordered another one for my wife. What more can I say!
