It’s a shame this post hasn’t attracted the attention of TM’ers that know more about this then we do. I feel like I’m groping in the dark.

I know whatcha mean.

At the same time, it is nice to know that different varieties of competent makers were out there. I bet it's hard to have experience with all of 'em.

In my recent wanderings through craigslist, i spotted this posting for a Viking Eb:

And poking my nose into horn-u-copia, their maker page for Viking is entirely blank, but sousaphone pictured is a smaller version of ours... at least at the bell end.
Thanks for playing!

Lyon & Healy Own Make BBb

Just to give my particular example of why i jumped to the L&H conclusiom because of the ferrules.

Sorry for being so slow at stuff.

My experiences with this tuba is really satisfying in a characteristic tuba sound. I am really curious what the old L&H Own Make giants i have seen on tubenet used for franken horns sound like.
Thanks for playing!

Two new data points:

http://forums.chisham.com/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=94681"%20%20target="_blank has a striking resemblence to mine. Perhaps a King neck is right and appropriate?

And second data point:

Image

https://ebay.com/itm/372819008438 (naturally you gotta keep clicking "no really i wanna see this) which the ferrules aren't quite the same. The mid section is flat instead of concave. The lay out is slightly different to accommodate fatter pistons, although the bore is about the same, and the bell floats a good 6-8" higher than most sousas, so it is above one's line of sight.

This has an uncommon set of neck and bits.
Thanks for playing!
