(Kidding. Sort of.)

We were going to make if the quinticlave had sold well, but that has never taken off - so adding more to the ophicleide range was abandoned. Shame as it would have been fun to have had a contrabass ophicleide - but Wessex has to be run as a profitable business, and not just to produce fun horns :wink:

As someone interested in baroque music, I would love to see a Wessex serpent come out!

What would I like? I’d like to find someone or be put in touch with someone who has a Luzern and someone who has an XL who is within a day’s drive so I could test them out. :-)

Thanks, Steve. Unfortunately, I will be out of state that week. Just my luck! I’ll keep trying.
