Thanks for your input. The "GS" stands for Grand Sovereign.
I have played the Willson BBb from the prototype to the production model. I have played these for extended periods - several hours to a week. The first prototype had a spectacular low register resonance but severe intonation problems. This, however, has been lost along the way. The production version of the horn is not especially good. The center of pitch in the upper register is poorly defined. There are still a variety of intonation problems. In the United States at least few of them have been sold, even though they have been on the market since December 1997.
