Here's a pic of me and my beloved Conn (1917) with a nickel silver body and gold wash bell. This thing plays like a dream.

Pic player snapped this last Sunday, as we set up for Them Basses. Dunno what I was doing - probably setting slides, since I'd just picked it up - had been playing euph till then.
My son's on the shiny Conn 20k borrowed from his high school, but the three beaters are mine. :)

Cool pic my girlfriend took. This could totally be an album cover! If they still made albums. And they needed to be covered. And if I ever recorded one.

They still make albums, Al, and they DO have to be covered!
Do you often play in Kensington Market, or just for Pedestrian Sundays?

Nice to hear from ya!

I'll be playing at Kensington tomorrow morning until the afternoon with Ryan Baer (formerly of Tuba Skinny). He'll be on percussion, steel guitar, harmonica and vocals. I'll tuba... Just tuba.
Would love to see you there! And anyone else as well, of course! I'm having such a riot doing these street gigs. Love 'em.

That pic was from July 1 when I decided that I'd rather get a little money while I practice. More lucrative than my practice room! :)

+1! I used to have a @1971 model. The best in-tune tuba ever made, if you don't need anything below F below open BBb. I sold it to a friend, so if I ever want to play it again, I can.
