The image of the helicon should have something inserted for scale. This is a general problem found throughout Wikipedia wherein objects are photographed sans any connection to context. Yes, the image should be about the one instrument, but without a scale or some other familiar object placed in the photo, determining the size of the object photographed becomes a problem.

Although the range is mentioned in the article I think it would be nice to have a chart showing the range. I'm always a big fan of a fingering chart, too. Also, does anyone still make these things. I bet someone out there does and it would be sweet to have a link to their site. And if no one makes them, I'm sure someone refurbishes old ones. Gingermint (talk) 03:05, 4 September 2010 (UTC)

Hey, and are these things written in bass or treble clef or some are in one while others are in another? It would be nice to see some sheet music written for all the various Helicons (maybe some fanfare or other). Gingermint (talk) 03:08, 4 September 2010 (UTC)
