It will see the former Belgian National Champion become an official endorsee of the full range of the Norwegian euphonium star's mouthpieces and accessories.

High quality brand

A band spokesperson told 4BR: "As Randefalk Music provides products that improve performance and simplifies the everyday life of the musician, the band was eager to be part of the development and growth of the high-quality brand."

One player certainly converted is Festival Brass baritone player Leen Vandenhende. "I play now play on the R4B baritone mouthpiece and is the perfect match for any contemporary baritone player."
