As many other instrument manufacturers, we offer a standard compensated Euphonium - well known as the 451 Melton /Meinl model. In comparison to this existing model, the 551 is presented with a completely re-designed bell an an all round optimization in intonation - especially on the 6th and 3rd partial. At the same time, the instrument plays with an until now unexperienced warm and big sound.All the other specification remain unchanged: bore 590 in (4th valve .669 in) and a bell diameter of 11.8 in. The 551 is exclusively offered in silver plated and is optically refined with gold-plated top and bottom valve caps.
