Excellent quality instruments are essential for a great performance. Select instruments have been chosen and recommended by teachers for your advancing student musician. A step-up instrument encourages long-term commitment to music and their band program.
These instruments provide a larger, richer sound and allow the better player to perform at a higher level.
Encore Select Instruments have been engineered with greater precision and use only the finest materials to achieve better intonation and response.
