I wonder how many people are going to post this on my timeline by the end of the day. it's just 7:30 in the morning and the number is already up to 2. Wayne and Bob probably have the same issue today

If Keith Brion wants to keep his ensemble as authentic as possible, he needs to hire you guys ASAP.

Why have 3 valves when you can have 6 and a main tuning slide kicker???

Do people still proofread their writing before posting articles?

Fe, Fi, Fo, Fumapalooza, I smell the stench of a fiberglass sousa. :) (nothing rhymes with sousa)

I want to get my hands on those last two raincatchers on the right in the section photo. Those things are massive!

According to the Conn Loyalist web page, those two 4-valve BBb "Grand Jumbo" (Conn's advertising term) raincatchers with 24" upright bells were referred to as the model 44K.

The comparable Grand Jumbo sousaphone with a 28" forward bell is the model 48K.

I have seen and played only one 44K. It is a magnificent sounding specimen.
