    The horn on the right is the prestige actually, but I think the shape of the bell in the picture is due to the weird angle I took this picture from, nothing wrong with the horn!

    Hi Dave,
    I think what you described is the case, as even with al valves pressed down there is almost no resistance. The instrument just plays extremely open and it will take a lot of practice to get...
