All of those combo horns sound really good to me,
Who would want any Strad parts beyond 79 anyway?
Don't believe the hype!
One reason Getzen would never need to do that is, well, their valves are the best in the world.
I do kinda wonder why Getzen started using the "Strad" style of bracing, maybe that's what got this stinky pile a-steamin'. Any comments, Brett?
Most all standard bracing nowadays looks pretty blasted similar. Form over function.
How bracing looks is not significant. What it does is. Well implemented bracing makes the horn sound even, behave itself dynamically and lets the player hear themselves without shortchanging the audience. There are defined places on the horn where bracing makes sense. The tuning slide braces add a certain amount of acoustic stability which is preferred by many players. That does not make it "Bach Style".
I just purchased my first Getzen. A vintage Getzen 300 Series Cornet. It will be shipped tomorrow.
Brett...Love my Eterna Classic (2009). It outperforms my Xeno hands down. Say hi to Mary back at the shop for me. Also remind her I still would like a new shirt if she ever gets some in again. Thanks. Larry
Yes, my Getzen T shirt's gone to God too - I only get to wear it when painting the house nowadays.
