    Well, I'm back. The horn held up, and the case held up. No trouble with the trigger/main tuning slide, valves, etc.

    That said, I did get a bell wrinkle, but I THINK that's because I absent...

    That really sounds like a great solution. Even something that fit a Bonna case inside would work well.

    I actually looked into having a trunk style road case made for my Bonna case to fit inside....

    Great question, Dave.

    I’ve attached two photos here; one showing the lead pipe in the case, and then again very close up. Based on these photos, I question whether your lead pipe would fit.

  7. Hirsbrunner Euphonium for sale - from 1981

    There is a Hirsbrunner for sale local to me from 1981 (At least I believe that's correct - the serial seems to indicate '81).

    I had the opportunity to play the horn last week, and it plays well,...
  8. Willson 2960 TA UK vs non-UK version

    I'm curious whether anyone has been able to side-by-side compare the UK with non-UK version of the Willson 2950 or 2960.

    Euph 106, J, J9 and an additional 106 narrow rim for comparison.

    I ended up using fedex. It cost almost $900 from the US to UK. But that was better than being on the hook for a $4k horn I didn’t want.
