What we think...
"Ricco Kühn horns have always been some of my favorites. They are easy to play with an open and clear sound. The W293 takes it up a notch by adding a bit more color and core. Overall this horn would be an excellent choice for a professional player who wishes to have an instrument that won't be overly taxing during long sessions."
