Hey Greg,

I truly love the piece you made for me. It held up to everything I could throw at it in the concert last. Mars, Uranus, Jupiter, various marches, as well as the Randy Bass arr. of the entire John Williams' Star Wars Suite. A Euph heavy concert indeed! I believe this V cup is great for the Euphonium. 

All the Best,
