    It plays as good as it looks! I and everyone love the lost art of engraving found on the bell.

    Something about these older Conns, those guys might have known what they were doing when they designed and built these fantastically colourful and projecting little horns. It's got a quarter century on the Strad', but it fills the sanctuary so well. I play un-mic'd with a praise & worship ensemble and we do some of the "standard" hymn tunes, too.
    I wonder what wizardry was worked to get suchmlight trumpets to play so dark?

    For reference, this is the inside of the sanctuary, from underneath the center of the organ, after an orchestral Mass this past spring I sang with the choirs.

    Your horns are beauties, GS! And the sanctuary is exquisite! My compliments on both. You are both fortunate and blessed! Dan :-)
