As you can tell I am new to this board. I am enjoying the talks.
First off, I bought the horn because of a limited budget. Call it a gamble that so far has paid off.
Second, the horn speaks surprisingly well in the low register, from the low Bb to the pedal Bb. My chops aren't up to par as I haven't played in a year, but so far I'm impressed with how easy it is to play around the low F and then pop the one 3 octaves up.
So far, I'm not impressed with how the 4th valve is placed in line with the other three. It's a bit awkward for the little finger. I'm also of the impression that it is pitched sharp.
Lastly, I'm talking about this horn on this board, because I want to know of experiences of others who own the same brand.
