I just got off of the telephone with Mr. Fedderly and a Getzen F tuba is not going to be produced. Mr. Fedderly purchased the prototype from Getzen when he was told that the Getzen F tuba would not be produced. He uses it as his own F tuba, and it dosen't sound as if he is going to ever part with it...he loves it. According to Mr. Fedderly, he is the person behind the idea of the Getzen F tuba, but when the Getzen company changed hands from one Getzen to his brother, the brother decided not to produce the F tuba, but to put more time and money into building other kinds of instruments. For this reason, Mr. Fedderly purchased the Getzen F tuba...the only one ever built.
Mr. Fedderly can confirm this, but I believe that I got that all correct.
