    Those pictures cry out with a message: that person should have bought a different horn! I have to think that all those plates would "stiffen" the horn, lessen its overall vibration, but perhaps give...

    Nice use of the piccolo, too!

    The whole thing is tastefully played, which is usually the case with the British!

    Right you are! Not sure how I missed that one. BTW, the video doesn't show other areas of the horn where more plates might be hidden.

    I have play-tested one of these in the mid(?) 1980's and it was a pretty good horn. I think it would do nicely as a "filler" horn for you.

    I am in the "use what works" camp. For me the deciding factor is whether I need the 3rd slide to be longer for 23, and if that makes it too long for 3 alone on concert G (or D).

    FWIW, I like the...

    Welcome to the forum!

    Of course the choice of a horn is complex and controlled by what your own tastes are. Perhaps your tastes are still evolving, though.

    I'm trying to find out. It's possible he is just getting a newer model with a trigger, for example, but I'll update here if I learn more.

    The Sterling's intonation without the trigger is in line with several other top horns. The upper Eb is the worst note for most folks, and I would probably use 13 fingering on it. If you do that, the...

    I think it was in 1980 that I saw a performer using a Miraphone compensating euph (their first model). He had a factory option of a trigger, but it worked the 1st and 3rd slides simultaneously....

    I think the horn has now slid into bargain territory! Good chance to get the special British sound and nice response Sterling has.
