From The H. N. White's Company's earliest days, they made the finest euphoniums and baritones on the market and led the way in innovation and quality. Both euphoniums and baritones were manufactured with special attention to the tone and volume made by each instrument. The H. N. White Company made the following brands: King, American Standard, and Cleveland euphoniums and baritones. The H. N. White Company made all of its own euphoniums and baritones and did not stencil any for other companies (that I know of).

This page is designed to show the first known year of production (based on my catalogs) and any changes that are made over the production cycle of the instruments including model numbers and any unique specifications.
