Mine is not the big Martin, and I am pretty sure they only made the two sizes in BBb. Eventually I will dig up some photos of the original instrument to post for comparison. The original bell is 20 inches, the bell connecting ring is 6.5 inches, and the original bore was roughly .700". The horn is smaller than a short-action Conn, and the big Martins are bigger than the Conns in every way. But with the new valve section it FEELS bigger than my Bohm & Meinl 5500.
