Wait...

Broken spine... bad back... let's design a 6/4 BAT?

Don't get me wrong, I'm glad you're recovered enough that a tuba of this size is an option... and I applaud your work and efforts to build this tuba... but why not build something more reasonably-sized?

Any news on final dimensions (bell size, weight...) and delivery date? Maybe some more eye candy pix too please.

20" bell and 0.075" bore expanding in 4th and 5th valves.

Delivery depends on professional feedback of prototype #2. We want to make the Grand as good as possible, so getting everything right is priority over quick release.

I can't wait to try out one of these next to my Conn Grand Orchestral! They look like they have similar proportions

I can't say until we have completed professional trial of the new Grand. Depends if ready to go as is, or needs further development
