I didn’t know him but appreciated and learned from his posts. RIP Klaus

what I find amusing is that I also had Klaus as a friend on Facebook. I have several non-musician friends who enjoyed following his posts. Many of them have chimed in to express condolences concerning his passing.
I'm just crazy about dementia.

My memories of him were of a sincere desire to document and catalog horns as any collector would for knowledge to future generations. He was passionate, knowledgeable, and respectful and it's sad he no longer will be with the boards, but his legacy and memory will live on.

RIP Klaus.

I always enjoyed what he posted here; at was at times intriguing, at times eclectic, but he was always polite, courteous, and willing to help others. I appreciated his selfless contributions of arrangements, his time spent maintaining the Yahoo group and I know he will be missed.

I am sad to hear of this!

Klaus and I had a period some years ago where we talked frequently on the phone, and I drove over to visit him at his house. I have fond memories of being allowed the honor to play the instruments in his vast collection (housed in his living room for the most part!). His place looked like the ideal playground for a true instrument geek and we both had a good time! I learned a lot that I still use!

I stopped most of my playing and focused on another career path, and Klaus and I fell out of contact. In any case, it was always refreshing to talk to a person who had opinions and dared to stand by them. Whether others agreed or not!

I know that he talked about testamenting his instrument collection to the very nice instrument museum here in Copenhagen, housed under the national danish history museum (https://en.natmus.dk/museums-and-palace ... ic-museum/). I really hope that he did go through with that idea so that everyone in the future will be able to visit the Klaus collection and share his enthusiasm for the instruments!

Once he replied to a post, and the advice was well thought out and really helped me.
I oftenthought of him as a anchor to tubenet, exerting a presence of calmness and realism into particularly heated and passionate discussions. His posts angered no one, didn't usually go to one side of a argument, but rather have knowledge and helped all who read it.
I'll miss him and his thoughtful and realistic analysis.

I mean if you want to, you can buy me the tuba in my name :P

I remember him from when I started reading the board many years ago. He was always a great source of wit and information, and he was always a gentleman. I will miss him.
