Yep, me too! [Gets in line]

If all else fails, maybe we could find a few more nutters like us and place a custom volume order with JinBao! 8)

Ive got a Martin Mammoth sousa Body, with a trimmed Mira 186 bell. I also have an old .860 kaiser helicon valve set (4 valves, no tubes, rotor body only)

Yes, available.

For what it's worth, I finally got around to having Dan Oberloh do a valve job on that 38K CC project I picked up a while ago... Summer is going to be super busy, but once I can finish that cool old Conn up I'll be listing it here... or at least posting pics of the rebuild... I'm too dorky not to keep such a cool sousaphone, but I've got other projects to fund and other sousaphones I gig on, so rather than relearn all my head charts up a step I'd probably sell it anyway...

How does the Martin play? Do you have any pics?
