modern copy of 'original' Helleberg with no name on it (?)

Postby barry grrr-ero » Sat Jun 01, 2019 4:08 pm

Hello. I bought a modern copy of an original Helleberg from somebody here at Tubenet. I have no record of the transaction in my messages, nor in my personal e-mail account. I'm wanting to put it back out for sale, but would like to know who made this copy. It's in pristine shape: silver plate/Euroshank.

I used it in one concert and was fine for having to play very softly on the rotary "Neptune". I'm just going slightly wider and shallower for type of playing.

I *think* Big Mouth Brass made/makes the small, unmarked Helleberg copies and I *think* I bought mine a while back from Mark Jones... does that rattle any memories loose?

Yes, I think that may be it. I look at Google images and see if I can find a picture. Thank you.
