    This is another reason I wish I lived in the US. I would have a field day tooting on them!

    Has anyone tried that E3 with the short valves? Does that affect intonation or response? I certainly covet it, but I don't currently have SAF (spousal approval factor) saved up since I recently upgrade the TV in the den.

    I tried it, but I did not notice any intonation problems. However, it did seem somewhat more stuffy than I am used to.

    I tried it as well at ITEC in Knoxville this year (2016). I played it in a room with others playing other horns, but it did not seem to have any obvious intonation problems. The valve stems are noticeably shorter, so you could go pretty darn quick, however I did not care for the valve buttons that were on that particular horn (I think they were brass and convex). Miel (from Adams) told me after the conference that those are not necessarily the valve caps that might be shipped with a short action horn if it goes into production (I still think at the point I tried it in June 2016, it was a prototype horn). I have to somewhat agree with Dave that the horn did not sound quite as remarkable as my own (an Adams E3 with SS bell). That could simply be that it was, I think, a yellow brass bell (might be gold, but I don't think so) and lacquered horn, whereas mine is a sterling silver bell and other metals on the body (gold brass, yellow brass and rose brass - the short action horn also has rose brass on the main tuning slide).
