Eb helicon

Postby ken k » Sun Oct 08, 2017 9:29 pm

looking for one of those funky looking little European rotary valved helicons with the little bells in Eb. Did they make them in Eb? I think the ones I have seen are in F.

Not funky, rotary, nor 'Euro', but Wessex has a pretty hip Eb helicon.https://www.wessex-tubas.com/shop/tubas/eb-tubas/he29-eb-helicon/

Dillon has a couple of Eb helicons right now. One is a Conn, not sure of the other. Pistons, I'm afraid. There is one dealer on Ebay who comes up with a lot of that Euro stuff with rotary valves. Can't remember his ID but guys here have talked about him and say he's a good seller. Maybe someone else knows his name. He's based in Germany.

UPDATE: His Ebay ID is g.mu6 and he has a few F helicons right now.

Cerveny makes an 4-valve Eb helicon with 45 cm bell. I never di play one, so I can't say anything about the quality.

Just checking...

Some o' the suggestions are piston Ebs helicons.

Would the OP consider piston Eb options?

I would prefer one of the old style rotary helicons, mostly for the look. I play in a German band and would like to have that authentic look if I could find one that plays halfway decent.
I have an awesome Pan American BBb piston helicon already.

My friend has one he may part with. It a czek 3V 1900s style. I think he was wanting $800 or more. Its in pretty decent shape for its age and has the original mouthpiece too.

This looks like the answer to your question. The price is even right:

Not rotary or European, but I have one of those really cute BUESCHER E-flat helicons here with a nice bag on consignment. It's the same model that Tom Holtz acquired and souped up for his own use, but this one is not souped up.
