    My 5050 has a hard case (w/wheels), but I've been using the Cronkite case for years and love the convenience because the 5050 is such a heavy horn. I try and remind myself each time that although...

    The little silicon pad is probably the cheesiest part of my entire horn, poorly thought out and executed. Try using some rubber cement or other glue to hold it in place. Mine has fallen out several...

    I never considered that the Wick may be sitting a little too low in my 5050. Maybe it's time to experiment with some cork? Let me know if you do to and keep us posted.
