Great list! I will be buying a Euphonium for sure at TMEA, and am looking forward to trying the e flat and f tubas too along with the new bass trombone.

Awesome, I’ll be at TMEA to give the ophicleide, the new bass and contrabass trombones and the BBb tornister a spin. Thanks for this list!

Even if you have tried Wessex in the past, do again and you will see how much the quality has risen in the last couple years.

Silver-plating is now double the thickness of most other horns made in China and we have really been working to perfect every detail to the highest standard. Rotary linkage now uses robust solid nickel levers and removable Wessex Z valves are the norm on larger rotary tubas. All piston valves are stainless steel with nylon valve guides - with most now vented for smoother legato playing.

And every single horn is quality assured and play tested by the experienced Wessex team before leaving the factory (those that don't make the grade are rejected and stay in China)

Come and meet Chuck Nickles (Wessex chief engineer), Paul Maybery (Wessex artiste) and myself, Jonathan Hodgetts (Wessex founder) at the Wessex Tubas booth at Army conference

There is just not room for everything. But as you want to try, I will include the Jazz tornister in the van.

If there are other instruments people want to try that are not listed, do let me know and I will attempt to bring along if we have in stock and there is space in the van.
