    That's a fun video - thanks, Jonathan! I liked hearing what Chuck had to say, but it is also cool to see a few scenes of the factory, etc.

    I also the way he related the philosophy of Wessex "want[ing] to make new instruments that weren't just straight copies of something already on the market."

    Does the euphonium towards the end of the video look a lot like a Hirsbrunner? If it's a new Wessex design, I would be curious to learn more about it.

    We often reference existing instruments during development, often multiple different ones. Much easier than starting with a blank sheet. That was a Hirsbrunner being referenced

    That factory looks really neat & well organized. Very good to see the amount of hand finishing going on, too.
