    I find it interesting how the floating leadpipe makes such a big difference.

    I didn't like the prestige until I played one with the floating leadpipe.

    That said, 5th and 6th partial...

    When I spoke to the USA Besson distributor, they mentioned that getting a silver 2051 or 2052 with the floating leadpipe would be a special order, and would take some time. I assume that would stand...

    Are you saying the Geneva was more than a Prestige over there? That surprises me a little bit, though I'm not sure why.

    Glad you like the horn.

    Geneva is hard to get in the USA. As far as I know, only one dealer really Carrieís anything, and theyíre hard to get in touch with.

    Yes, I have M, ML, L, and the GVL model, as well as S/M/L backbores.

    the GVL is deeper than the regular M. I like what it does to the sound, but I find it a bit fatiguing.
