    I love how the "demonstrational" videos have the guy demonstrating one of the 8 options. Why would they post such god aweful videos if they didn't demonstrate the entire potential of the instrument? I would be happy if I just listened to those 4 maxed clips and I heard the piccolo feature.

    I don't see how that could be a good picc. It may be a fun horn to have if it stays cheap enough.

    If you have nothing better to do with $150.00 dollars I guess this is the horn for you.

    I am highly skeptical of any instrument that looks or sounds like that one. Beginner quality at best; and I'm certin that the reason the videos don't demonstrate the Piccolo part is because it would sound like S**t.

    But that's just my opinion!

    Ditto that, John. I wouldn't buy it if it was free.

    It guarantees "30 day satisfaction". That's pretty ambitious! :D

    Fair enough guys... ROFL I don't plan to buy one of these. Keeping in mind that I have problems with buying combos like B flat/C or E flat/D I can imagine that this will be even more awful. Demonstration: I am not sure of this is hron's fault or trumpeter's but these guys were sounding pretty awfull....(I suspect that this is due to a great degree to the trumpeter). The F trumpet or Piccolo would be interesting to hear, but probably the guy cannot play piccolo anyway ROFL. I was just interested to see TMers reaction on this strange combo...Would be interested to hear if somebody actually tested one of these horns

    You have to be really desperate for work if you need this thing to get a job!
    The valve slides are fixed length so the will only be in tune on the Bb side (if at all). It does have a long tuning slide however....................

    It can save place in bags...but can it save the job...or secure one...quit unsure about that, Rowuk...I will probably be quite unhappy to replace my Spadas with this octopus-trumpet ROFL
