    Hey Cody... Just curious... Do you have any thoughts how much is too much to spend? I ask because in order to really do this right takes a fair amount of labor for somebody.

    I'm not trying to be a downer... just realistic.

    My friend Todd Clontz has done several of these bells including one that I used to own years ago... he does REALLY good work. You could call him at Rosso Music Center 410-636-1007 and ask him about it if you'd like.

    Just my two cents!

    I would like to keep it under $100 if possible. I have thought about getting some pitch or freeze some soapy water in the bell and give it a try. I mean, its only a bundy....

    you might want to google "pipe bending" -- you will likely need some tools or insight --- otherwise you will crease the horn --- Tube bending - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    and if you crease the horn -- you just "CODY-fied" the Bundy -- so to speak -- ROFL ROFL ROFL

    may want to consider a Herriot bend instead of a Dizzy bend. Dizzy's bell bent up at the valve block = this is more severe. Leblanc and Getzen made a 45 degree bend for Bobby Herriot that would be easier to do. Then just add 1 support arm. Here is what I'm talking about:

    Blaine - those are a couple cyber-expressive horns! Just curious - is the feedback to you any different than a regular bell?

    Good point Blaine, I was debating this. I really like the look of the Dizzy turn, and dont know about the brace strength on the herriot. What would you recommend?
