    Ok perfect - I had guessed based on holding it the Adams HBC was significantly lighter than the Ray Farr HBC so to see the actual weights makes me feel better about the purchase! And between Adams...

    I bought one of these for my Adams and can't wait for it to arrive. I was very impressed with the Ray Farr HBC for the Prestige I had for a hot minute. Being able to dial in the sound with weight...

    Could be paralysis by analysis. Take some time off, get your head straight and try to come back to the reason you play in the first place. Why did you start playing as a child - what excited you...

    I use Blue Juice due to my chemistry but my tech HATES it and says it has too much alcohol and leaves residue on the valves when the alcohol evaporates. He likes Ultra-Pure. I had a lot of success...

    If I ever hear my phone ring I've made a mistake - it is permanently on silent/vibrate.

    Here is the conversation I had with the seller after pointing this mistake out. I didn't respond to him as I'm not interested in the horn but so you all know what his thoughts were.

    The person listing the item directly told me it was Demondrae's horn when I made a (fairly low) offer. That was wrong and I've informed him but I don't know if that will cause the price to change.

    Update from Professor Thurman:
    "Hi Jacob. I hope all is well. I know this horn well but I didn't play it. It was played by my colleague Patrick Schulz. It's a terrific instrument and would be in...

    I found on all the Adams I've played that Blue Juice works the best for me and my chemistry. I picked up a set of those cleaning spitballs and any valve problems quickly go away. For springs, the...

    The new 2052 8G I received had a ton of gunk at the bottom of the valves, indicating previous play and non-cleaning. I recommend giving the horn a bath with snakes and clean that gunk out.

    I said the timbre, to me, is more like Willson than Besson - 2950 or 2960, not 2900. More core, less rounded corners as previously described.
