Dannel’s Big B Baritone Everything in this picture that is soft-soldered except for the front F posts has to be removed. Who would have guessed what was under that replacement guard? The guard used to hold the body seam together. It was folded over itself. The seam has been cleaned and we’ll be welding it all back together. The split seam is repaired… … but the seams on this horn are proving to be a real hassle. The seam above the line split and has now also been repaired. This shot speaks for itself: The thumb rest has been moved a few times, now we make it adjustable. Previous bad soldering joints will be fixed. If you see a brace in this picture, it is getting replaced. The crooked will be made straight. Josh is busy aligning the posts. We added a G key contact; it just needs to be silver plated. B key contact, also needs to be silver plated. Josh replacing the octave square with a more efficient ProShop design. Dannel’s Bari, together again for the first time. Dannel looking cute in the pad room. Tuning Dannel’s Bari. Yes, Curt tunes with a screwdriver. Dannel picking up his horn. Note the x brace, side key risers, new low C guard, adjustment screws on the F#, new strap ring, side E contact, side C contact, side Bb guide, welded body seam under the Bis key extension, new pearls, adjustable thumb rest, and the crescents in the bottom stack tone holes (to name a few). The low C guard and bow guard including the alligator were fabricated from round and bar stock, respectively. This horn was back in the shop for its first COA! We modified the left hand thumb rest and 8va touch for a more comfortable feel.
