The F and EEb tubas are now in production. .730"/.750" 18" bell. Designed in Elkhart, built in China.
If Pop Johnson had built an F, this is what it would be like. (I wish I still had chops.)
The compact (3/4) BBb tuba is also in production.
I have one of each in Elkhart and would be pleased to have anyone stop in and test drive. (Call first.)
See pictures on link: New Instruments for 2012 and F Tuba Don Harry at Kleinhans Hall . Mark Jones posted his comments on Tubenet "AMAZING new piston F and Eb tubas!!!"
I will be taking them to Florida MEA, Capitol Tuba Conference (Army), Texas MEA, Ohio MEA, NAMMM (California) and some stops along the way.
The new compensating Euphoniums with the dual action trigger are on the way. I'll post pictures soon.

The new Gemeinhardt tubas were brought to Buffalo, I had played the cc awhile back and loved it. I already own the Bb and will own the f. The intonation, response and above all depth of sound is excellent. The Eb is rock solid. Congratulations to Dick Barth.
