And just one of me. Maybe it's the camera angle, but I decided that I look weird when I play the tuba...

not included in here are my wife's bassoon, flute, clarinet, another banjo, stepdaughter's keyboard and guitar, my snoot flute, and a borrowed oboe.

From left, more or less in order, Amati BBb helicon (1970s?), Kay M1B bass (1955), glass washboard c. 1943, Benge 165F trombone, Bacon and Day Montana Silver Bell Model 1 tenor banjo, Cerveny F helicon modified by Dan Schultz (c. 1900?), Martin Mammoth (1957) on a Tuba Tamer, Slingerland MayBell plectrum banjo (c.1929), B&S PT-10 (1984) Schiller 3v comp baritone (2012), Conn Eb 3v (1919, IIRC), Schiller 4v comp euphonium (2012).
BBC tuba rest, Belmonte tuba stand, Belmonte music stand, Tama throne. Bass is on a Hercules bass stand.
Top shelf: Balu Large walnut mute, H&B small tuba mute, Samick uke, Yamaha silent brass, recording bell for Martin. Gig bags include Cronkhite, Gard, Altieri, and Cerveny cover.

It's nice to finally have enough room that all of these can be in one area and easily accessed to play.

No idea, my friend snapped this right before I started playing, and he showed me after the recital. I like it :)

Randy, you've been teasing us with descriptions of your York Eb for years now. You just gave evidence that youare able to post pictures, so: How about it?

Also, a nice side by side with the Rusk cut CC would be interesting...
Some old Yorks, Martins and maybe a rotary King...
