    The 4th valve is standard Bauerfeind fare. It is completely interchangeable with my 2009 Sterling. Pictures of a top sprung valve in comparison with the standard valve are below:

    Hey all...I don't want to be rude, but I will not reply to pricing questions since as a trade show demo prototype, this horn was already used in 2017 and is quite a bit more "custom" than many....

  7. Unpacking my Adams E3 (Part 1)

    I took my Adams over to the factory in Ittervoort last July 26 in my Cronkhite gig bag. When I left the horn, I did not leave the bag or the original Marcus Bonna case. So Miel Adams and his team had...
