  • Now Carrying Adams Euphoniums!

    Another exciting piece of news... our first batch of Adams Euphoniums available for purchase direct at ACB will be arriving in a few days. For years we have focused on the high brass side of things but now are finally expanding to trombones (we have a bunch for sale here at the shop right now), tubas, and euphoniums. Why not start out with IMO the best euphoniums on the market. We have the following available:

    1. Adams E1 .60 Gold Brass Bell, in clear lacquer
    2. Adams E1 .60 Sterling Silver bell, in brushed lacquer (sale pending) 
    3 Adams E2 .80 yellow brass bell, silver plated (Selected series).

    We do have more coming in shortly but here's your very rare chance to order one today, save the 4 month wait and get an incredible instrument.

    Email or call us today to set up an in-store trial. We can pick anyone up from Logan Airport, there's a nice hotel less than 1/2 of a mile away from the shop, and tons of great food options close. If you have been in the market for a world-class Adams Euphonium let us know and we can make it happen for you!
