    I never liked the thumb trigger found on most euphs.

    I and Dan Oberloh designed this alternative on my Besson.

    It operates via my 4&5 left fingers

    These shots were taken before final finish...

    If the valve caps are fluted around the edge rather than knurled, it is a New Standard.

    New standards also had tapered valve buttons, but those seem to get lost with some players.

    If all valve...

    One man's sharp is another man's flat.

    Tone wise, the Eb tuba had some magic, but one or two of the spells were buggard.

    Franz, I don't quite understand what you are referring to when you say the "C" horn can play bass clef parts without transposing.
