    I recently picked up a Holton T101(my NEW horn, only 10 years old). I bought it in part because of what I've read on the various forums about them. That and the fact I got a beautiful horn for a little over $300. I think the horn plays great. I guess my question is, even though I've read good things about the horn, it seems very few people have played them. If you've played one what is your take on them? I know, if I like it that's all that matters, but I'm wondering why so few players(real players, not a hack like me) play them. Also, if the were made with the old Bach tooling, would a round Bach tuning slide fit the horn?

    The Holton T101 is the absolute best recreation of a Bach Mt. Vernon
    that money can buy . The T101 actually plays better than the Bachs that they make today. I'm curious does your 90's era T101 have one tuning slide brace or two. The earlier T101 s had two braces just like a Bach
    but at some point Holton started putting just one brace on them , It doesn't matter because they are both great playing horns.
    As to why more players aren't using them , I could not say , BUT I do
    know this ; everybody that plays one says the same thing "GREAT HORN"

    Enjoy !
