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.

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.
