Would rather not sign up for the Imgur app, so this +1 will have to do.

Is that the original matching 24” bell with that Conn?

That is not the original bell. I got it from a 21J and had it restored with the horn along with the original recording bell.

My Miraphone 187, '56 Silver Conn 20J, '67 Conn 20J, and '67 Conn 24J. Not pictured: one upright bell for the Conns, a euphonium, bass guitar and amps, and all of my wife's woodwind instruments. The upright bell is currently at the shop. I'm getting a quote to have it stripped, repaired, and replated in silver for the '56.

Can never have too many 2XJ's. I had a 20J which got stolen, which is now replaced with another 2XJ. That 1956 20J will be super nice with the silver upright bell once you get it. Nice horns!

Space is starting to become an issue, if I bring another one home anytime soon I'll be sleeping in the yard. :lol: I'm hoping to get the bell done later this year.

I don't have many current action shots. Here is one from the JSU Alumni Reunion from 2016 and another from the pit at PLT for My Fair Lady in the spring of 2017.

Thanks! That’s a beautiful beast. I’d love to have one like that!

First up is my York "Master" all decorated for Christmas.
Image
Then it's me with my soon to be sold Miraphone 187.
Image
And me with my soon to be (hopefully) Helicon.
Image
Here's one of me with my Yamaha YBB-103.
Image
This is one of me with an H.B. Jay "Columbia" EEb Helicon that I used to own.
Image
And finally, me when I was play testing a Miraphone 496 at WTAMU. I now own one.

Man, Schlep. You're a tall one. I have a 496 Hagen and in have to adjust the stand to keep the bottom bow between my thighs to get the mouthpiece to my mouth. If I held it the way you're holding it, the mouthpiece would hit me in the forehead.

Yep! When Richard Murrow showed me the 496 he said it would look smaller in my lap then it really was.

I've tried a 496, and though that pic might be deceiving, it's no small tuba. I've also stood next to Wayne more than once. He is one tall drink of water, that's for sure. And I'm very proud (and a bit envious) he acquired a new Hagen.
