    As Sean Kissane has clarified the provenance of Eastman/Shires horns, my own post is not only unnecessary but also partially incorrect. I am deleting it.

    So, do they import valve blocks and so forth from Eastman for assembly in Massachusetts (for the "higher end" horns)??

    Sean Kissane has clarified Eastman/Shires provenance.... So, my post on the subject is obsolete and incorrect.... I am deleting it.

    Shires makes all their parts in their Massachusetts factory, and are even moving silver plating in-house. The Q series are assembled at Eastman, and the custom series are 100-percent Massachusetts. The Bravo line, I believe, are Shires designs produced by Eastman.

    Edit: I'm not a hundred percent sure on whether the Q Pistons and the Custom pistons are the same. I do know that Mike Taylor bought a Solo model from (I believe) Trent Austin that had a Q serial number, but that may have been an early prototype?

    My personal Solo horn has serial number 102, and I believe the Custom that was shown alongside it at Midwest last year was serial 101.

    Thank you Sean for the clarification... To avoid any further confusion, I have deleted my own partially incorrect posts on the subject.
