I would think out 2020. We may have prototype for Midwest this year, but I can’t promise

Have Wessex been working with the Champion/Solo Eb basses in any way?

I see you are in Sweden. Note Wessex is heading to Sweden next week. We are exhibiting in Karlskrona on Wednesday 8th May, followed by a concert by the Swedish Naval Band with Jörgen Ådvall premiering "Follow the Wind" by Magnus Hylanders playing the Wessex TB693 Prokofiev BBb tuba. This will be followed by the same concert in Eksjö on Thursday 9th. Then Wessex will be at the Swedish Army Bands House in Stockholm on Saturday 11th May exhibiting - to then be followed by Wessex principal artist Will Druiett giving a masterclass and recital which will be played on the British F tuba, TC695 Chicago-York and TB690 Kaiser. So plenty of opportunities for tubists in your part of the world to see, try and hear Wessex!

For new product releases - the new EP600 hand-hammered compensated euphonium is just going into production, as is a 5-valve version of the Kaiser (TB790) and at last the Over-the shoulder Eb saxhorn (OTS) now playable at 440Hz or 452Hz, with the bell pointing backwards or upwards for concert use.

I just noticed on the website that there are 2 pics of a 3V BBb helicon included with the listing for the 4-valver. So... is that an option now?

Also, any update on when the new and improved neck and bits might be available?
