I use a Miraphone TU-31(formerly C6) on my Getzen with good success. I haven't played a standard Helleberg much, but I believe it's comparable depth-wise. It's a little more open, and a lot more comfy on the rim. The slurs are very easy and attacks are "right there", not overly crisp but the resistance is just right, at least with this horn. I got in an older C6 a few weeks back, and the cup and rim were the same, but the backbore was more open with a thinner shank, making the resistance less and the sound a little brighter, and it didn't slot as well as the newer one. I thought the TU-31 was a better mpc.
