I got to play this horn…and damn, it’s absolutely fantastic…
It’s a bit heavy to hold, but the tone is so dark and mellow. The tone is also very consistent throughout the range. This is a beautiful instrument and an example of fine craftsmanship. It is quite a work of art.
Here’s the blog it is mentioned in.
