Someone should put together either an article or a series of articles on the people who led the way in innovative instrument designs. Today we have Perantoni, Tucci, Deck, and a few small volume dealers who are experimenting with pushing instrument designs to new levels. It would be interesting to hear about how people like August Helleburg, William Bell, and Fred Marzan influenced designs in their time and how those designs led to today's instruments.
Anyone want to coauthor a book, "The Perfect Tuba"?
