    This looks like it could be the new outer shape design - Denis has been trying some new outer shapes recently (for tuba, trombone and trumpet) and I think this could be the new tuba one.
    I don't actually have one to hand to compare, but it seems familiar.

    The only thing that is wrong, to my eyes, is that lack of ability to spell Denis correctly. If it is indeed engraved Dennis then it is a fake - the most common spelling foul up on any brass forums

    I had a look at this yesterday and it resembles a cut-down classic Helleberg. I have heard that Denis Wick's son had been working on tuba mouthpiece design with the idea that the 'waist' of the mouthpiece area is perceived to be the critical point for mass. No sign of that on the picture! The guy is selling a Don Maslet mute with a low starting bid price. Could be a bargain there!

    I've checked with the seller and it is engraved Denis not Dennis.

    It looks like the new shape Denis Wick that a trombone player recently showed me.
