Good deal! I miss playing and wish there was a brass band around here. Sadly, I don't think I'll be able to make it out this summer for Gunnison :cry:

This was my son's low brass section last school year: Final concert of the 2012-13 Rolling Hills Middle School (Los Gatos, CA) Symphonic Band. My son was the section leader (blonde, with his own MW 25); the second chair tuba player is the dark haired young gentleman with the schools brand-new Holton 4-valve tuba (thanks, bloke!).

I didn't know that there were such things. I thought that each Gnagney was its own individual "work of art." (Tongue only slightly in cheek...Everyone who plays one of Sam's creations has had great things to say about them or has kept their mouth shut with any criticism. The only Gnagney-influenced horn that I've ever had the pleasure to play, albeit briefly, was the big Martin-Gnagney BBb once owned by Mitch Williams and now listed for sale by Blake Cooper here on TN.)

I think Sam has settled on a basic pattern that he follows: York or Holton bell (mostly Holton these days, I think) + King 2341 body + 5 valves. Assuming he can get two similar bells, the resulting horns should be similar. From what I know my Gnagey is a one-off, with a Cleveland bell and only four valves. Sometime I'd like to try one of the 5v York/Holton versions just to hear and feel the differences.

This is my university's orchestra section. Taken after a performance of the Bolcolm Clarinet Concert with 2 bass bone parts :shock: I'm the Godfather-ish lad sitting with his horn.
