Before pictures of this Helicon tuba.

Lots of damage.

Previous "repair".

We actually had to pull all of the guards off to remove the dents from the guards and the branches underneath.

Starting to disassemble all of the branches.

Lots of dents in every tube.

Fabricated a new mouthpipe.

Once the dents are removed, we polish and reassemble.

The completed horn. Polished raw brass. This tuba currently resides at the Sheldon Museum.
