Anyone have anything they would like to say about them, such as history? I would be interested to read some history and stories on these unique euphoniums! He's had it for over 60 years. We asked him to play something through the small bell so we could hear how it sounded. After hearing it, we asked that he never use it again.
They are interesting as novelties, but most of them were made with a smaller bore than would be common in professional euphoniums today.
The second bell tubing has a cylindrical bore to provide a valve trombone like sound. I guess there is still music around somewhere that indicates where one should switch between bells, but I have never seen it. When town bands and professional concert bands, like Sousa's, were more common their solo euphonium players often used DB euphoniums.
Simone Mantia is a name that comes to mind when one thinks of DB euphonium players.
I think that the last stock double bell euphoniums were made in the s, or mayber even into the early 60s. One of the euphonium players in a community band in which I played had an old Conn DB that was gold plated and fully engraved. It was among the most beautiful instruments I have ever seen.
He used it as his every day horn. The one I own is a 5 valve King that plays very well as a 4 valve American style bell front "baritone horn. Mantia , and a Holton. Both are 5 valve horns. While most effective for solos, they are also usable for everyday playing. In fact, the Conn actually has a valve lock-down for the trombone bell which makes switching on the fly almost impossible. I used mine for " Carnival of Venice ", where the implied two instrument part is even more effective if one uses two bells, too!
