According the the board stats Jonathan hasn't posted since Feb of 2021. I know Wessex is still in business and posting stuff on their website, but I have to believe the pandemic has hit them hard.

That, and J has got his own family and stuff. A little kid really turns life upside down. Especially when halfway across the world.

Not to mention, if sales are fine without J being active here, then why not chill out on the message boards!

I will clarify that everything is fine with Wessex Tubas. Like many businesses we were adversely affected by the pandemic to a certain extent, but the biggest challenge has been not being able to get to the factory to make new developments, and that is still the case today. My family with 2-year son has also rather distracted me - any parent with a young child will no doubt understand. Partly as a result, I have backed off somewhat from the business, leaving more to the team to keep things running.

So don’t fear, Wessex is still in full production and the quality is being well maintained by the workers at the factory we previously trained.
