I know I'm kind of late for this post, but will an F/Eb cimbasso be possible?

I just purchased a Wessex Maly travel euphonium, and I am absolutely loving it. (My neighbors probably love the little horn practice mute I also purchased for it a bit more.) The case is small and relatively unobtrusive, but it would still be nice to have a gig bag option for the horn itself. (Although really, I suppose I could embrace the original "tornister" philosophy behind the instrument and purchase a large backpack for it...)

I enjoyed testing that horn out. It was a lot of fun. Not quite a rich euphonium tone, but better than the average small horn

Both Eb and F cimbassi are produced by Wessex.

It is a lot of fun to play, and the sound really is surprising, considering it basically looks like a Christmas tree ornament. I'm still trying the find the right mouthpiece for me on it (the included Wessex mouthpiece and I did NOT hit it off), but that's part of the fun.

One gig bag option is choosing the double bell euphonium option on the Altieri site and plugging in all its ridiculous measurements, since their tuba bags are made to order. It's such a tiny horn that a gig bag isn't much of a priority, but it's always nice to have the accoutrements when purchasing your mid-life crisis horns.
