I'm visiting the Wessex USA store in Ferrysburg, Michigan today (7/21). Let me know if anyone wants me to try out anything in particular and rate/review.

How about the medium bore F-attachment?  Model #PB525F(?) I believe.  It has been mentioned here on the forum but it doesn't appear on the Wessex website.  Perhaps ask if there are/will be bell options (gold brass, yellow brass, etc)?

Thanks!

Gold brass is the standard bell for the PB/F-525, but it can be ordered with a yellow brass bell, nickel-plated or silver-plated.

Yeah I'd be curious if you could tell us about how the .525 with F attach plays. Also whatever else you try there.

If you could try both of their bass trumpets that would be great!

I'm guessing that you've left the shop by now, but I'd appreciate reading comments about the Eb alto 'sackbut' if you had the opportunity to take it for a spin.
