It's the most "Americanized" Mirafone I've personally seen so far. It's in the squat & fat style that Hirsbrunner rejuvenated when they came on the scene -- generally, a 3301/PT-4/HB-2/G50/2155/etc. type of thing (except BBb and 4 rotors, of course). 36" tall, 19" bell. No picture in the Brasswind catalog, but surely there's one somewhere.
It plays differently from the regular long-bell Mirafones, and I actually like it quite a bit.
