    The horn has all the features one would expect with a custom horn costing much more. Workmanship is first rate and completely dispels the typical “made in China” reputation.
    I’ve played it a couple of hours and am amazed how well this instrument plays – it compares favorably with my Yamaha 871, and Rauch No. 308 I played for many years.

    And yes, it will still require practicing!
