    It should arrive any day now.

    Looks like it’ll arrive tomorrow. It took 4 days to traverse a 1:45 drive.

    It's currently out for delivery. Right before my rehearsal tonight...

    it's here and it's glorious. I'll get it figured out during rehearsal tonight, but wanted to give everyone a peek.

    It took me a few minutes to adjust to it. I emailed them and received an immediate reply. Made sure the grip was veritcal and close to the horn. It's an interesting stretch for my index finger but the more I use it, the more I get used to it. It is very comfortable and sturdy. I totally love the colors too.

    I need to adjust mine a bit to be at a slight bit of an angle overall. Only thing I don't like is it leaving black marks where it's been attached to the tube walls on the 3rd valve.

    Back when I made my own leather guards I encountered the same thing. Leather in contact with silver creates tarnish. I learned I need to line the guard with cotton flannel (don't use nylon tricot - trust me). I used spray fabric glue to hold it, and all was fine.

    The hook maker should consider stopping the leather before it gets to the metal and using something else for the attachment part. Maybe.

    Thanks for the suggestion. Looks like I know what I'll be doing with mine.

    I've been giving this a little more thought. My solution was to help block the back side of leather (the rough side, that looks like course suede). But for a finished side, the first thing I would try is some leather balm. It is made to protect leather, but the balm may help to seal the surface enough that the tanning chemicals are blocked from the silver of your horn. Here is one example, but a local fine shoe store may have the same type of product. AND if it doesn't help with the hand grip, you can still use it on leather shoes, gloves, gig bags, etc.! (I use it on my Cronkhite bag.)
