Wow, I had the chance recently to play an Eclipse at a lesson with Alex. Holy cow! What a horn! The thing was built to withstand Nuclear Holocaust. The bracing was strong enough for me to use the horn to beat somebody with! (Not that I would) The detail of the horn and craftsmanship where superior to anything that I've ever had or played. The intonation, response, and free blowing nature of this horn make it a real treat to play. Leigh has got it spot on! Good show! Lara and Chuck I now envy you more then you know!
