    I will answer this a bit. The answer is no. The E2 is a very heavy horn much like a Miraphone 5050. With its 11" bell, the Sinfonico does not sound like an Adams (to me) at all. I would consider...

    Guido,

    I am next in line. Since most of us are playing in ensembles that are meeting, we are using the horn in rehearsal and performance and holding on to it for longer than we did with the ACB...

    Vito,

    Great write up. I want to say that I REALLY like your playing. You sound fantastic. I haven't listened all the way through the Golland piece, but the Stevens is magnificent! Keep playing the...

    Gary,

    I use Spitballs, QHR, and disassembly with swabs to do a full home cleaning on my horns. Once or twice a year. Yup valves, slides and the whole thing.

    The medium shank Willson 2900 took it's inspiration from the New Standard/Imperial of the 1960's. Dr. Brian Bowman was a student at Univ. of Michigan at the time and played that instrument under...

    Is this the Sterling Virtuoso that I have seen around for sale? If so, keep the trigger parts with the horn.

    Dave,

    Don't forget the infamous concert B-natural in the slow intro section of Pantomime. I must admit, my 2007 Prestige 2051-2 had a miserable C# (B-nat). You learn to deal with it, My Sterling...

    My ear is hearing an American bell front horn. I would guess a Conn or King.

    Shawn,

    The same team is involved in testing the Sinfonico as the Doubler. However, these are fairly widely spaced in time. Also at different price points. The Doubler positions more closely with...

    I listened pretty carefully with decent speakers. The Wick 4AL sounds a tad more brilliant and ever so slightly crisper than the Alliance DC4. The Alliance DC4 sounds just a bit warmer with just...

    Definitely older. Notice that the bracing does not match the unique style that is typical of newer Willson horns.

    Jake, my E3 is a .70 yellow brass horn with no tuning slide trigger. I specifically got it because I wanted a triggerless horn to complement my Sterling. I will admit that the mech on my Sterling...

    In the postwar Conn line, you would be looking for a 20i (Artist Series) which is a 3 valve with short action valves. Alternatively, in a 4 valve, the 24i Connstellation was the premier horn from...

    Quinn has a real storefront business these days in the Seattle area. He DOES sell a lot through eBay, but it is fair for him to sell direct. I have purchased from him before and found him reputable.

    Franz,

    I am not totally sure it is as simple as that. I did the reverse on a 2001 Sovereign (which has a full floating leadpipe). I didn't like the wrap of the Soverreign leadpipe (late British...

    Mike,

    The change to the 3rd valve wrap to move it closer to the outer bow is not unique to the new Gold Lacquer horn, but was made sometime around 2012 to all Sovereign/Prestige models. What I had...
