Lengthen tuning slide or bell? (helicon project)

Postby Etienne1006 » Fri Jun 28, 2019 9:02 pm

If I had to get an helicon down nearly a whole step, I'd instinctively do it by messing with the tuning slide. I did it, it works. Intonation is quite bad. Could I get better results with changing the bell for a longer one? Or a sousaphone one?

Any thoughts?

Thanks!

So, you could try adding a small length in the tuning slide and a longer leadpipe. Wouldn't mess too much with the bell.
