    John is correct about the extent of the injury. I might add a suggestion is not to jump too fast about another horn. Boy oh boy I've done that before. The thing I like about Wessex is the option...

    I started playing a compensator 3+1 about 3 years ago. Besides the extra weight, there are still some fingering patterns with the 4th valve that I have to go over and over with to get it right. The...

    It appears to be a pre Constellation 24I model. The 4th valve doesn't appear to have the double tubing like the Constellation and there is no trigger. I think the Smith model was the first to be...

    It's in crooked. Don't try and pull it out. After getting some oil into it, it may twist a little gently pushing it in. I did that once with a detachable bell. Not as bad mind you. From then on I...
