It is back up.

And I share bisontuba's enthusiasm for these in general.

What a nice horn for a kid in HS. Only 40 hours work (5 hours a week for 2 months) at min wage of $15 and the kid still has $5 left over for a giant burrito the size of your head to eat on the way home from Dillon's.

Ok, what am I missing here? What is the attraction to this seemingly "normal" tuba?

I too like to replace the f with a p when spelling Brau's last name, even though in this day and age, it is probably the computer's fault.

I guess i like the sound my Keefer helicon makes... I'll have to play it again this weekend, and try to distill what i like about it into more concise words, but yeah, if i have to name a favorite tuba, i probably would still say that helicon.

Their helicons and older sousaphones (20s and earlier?), though, do have an attypical valve section, which is kind of refreshingly different visually.

They have some mystique, e.g. http://forums.chisham.com/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=13532&p=109415&hilit=keefer#p109420

IIRC, Keefer was a considered a "high end" manufacturer, back in the day.....
