After more than one month of testing Steven Mead is very happy to recommend and promote this new valve tray/gutter/water catcher for euphoniums.

He has been looking for something like this for many years, and unhappy with the metal water catches the clip to the bottom of the valve group. The problem is traditionally have been extraneous vibration on certain frequencies, slight change of performance as well as the air compression sound that often accompanies the use of the metal gutters.

This new SB Tray is extraordinary light (10g) and nonmetallic, and it has small hooks on the end of the two protruding prongs that clip inside the bottom caps of valves one and three, giving a very secure and reliable grip.

It's very easy to remove and put back on for emptying the water, and there's also a very small groove at one end which allows the instrument to be tipped to one side to allow water to escape, if preferred.

Guaranteed not to vibrate! 

Please watch this video where Steven explains all aspects of this new accessory.

As this is a brand-new accessory, it hasn't been tested on every brand and model of euphonium yet but we are confident that it will be compatible with the following brands:

Besson - all professional models: Sovereign and Prestige. 1974 to the present

York

Geneva 

We've discovered it does NOT fit the Sterling - please do NOT buy this for Sterling euphs

(We'll update this list after more testing).

The distance between the prongs that fit inside the bottom cap is exactly: 6.9 cms. So if you are unsure, please measure the maximum distance between the inside of bottom centre holes of the bottom caps of valves 1 and 3.

Minimum distance would be 6.8 cms

Maximum distance would be 6.95 cms 

 

Weight: 10 grams (0.4 ounces)
