I keep hoping Tim Sullivan will chime in on this one. In a similar discussion on the tuba/euphonium Facebook page I think he suggested that Alexander, B & S, and VMI were virtually one in the same during a period in European history. What we see here in the US is limited by what is sold here in the US. There are lots of things that never reach our shores.

I seem to remember reading that one, love hearing from the guys who immersed themselves into a particular area of horn study and can tell you everything you don't hear in the general discussion threads. I will have to look him up and hear his conclusion.
