I seem to recall that Carl Fischer's IS a twin of the Harvard BBBb, and that the assistance of a locomotive factory had to be solicited to build these.
As to museums, I've heard plenty of stories about irresponsible museum ownership of historically significant artifacts, so perhaps private ownership (still legal - even after these last eight years) might be best for some things.
As to playability and accessability to tubists, I've always felt that the LACK of both of those characteristics in these instruments has been the big attention-getter in the first place. ;^)
B.T.W. What is your client offering to pay?
