So, was Roger Bobo's hand perched in the bell of this French Horn wrap tuba?
He'd probably need a catcher's mit on the bell hand!
Probably it was more like a mellophone... i.e. built and tuned to *not* require the RH in the bell.
Which brings me to another small question... were the valves fingered with the left hand or right hand?
