    Or...it could have a combination of the high and low pitch slides installed. Or...it could just be a crappy horn that doesn't play in tune...;-)

    I have a high pitch - low pitch Revelation. I think it sounds way better in high pitch playing alone with the Arbans. I have no idea why. It just sounds better to my ears.

    In the U.S. ac electric runs at 60Hz, in Europe it runs at 50Hz, what up with that. If history shows anything 440Hz is probably the most peaceful. Not a whole ton of wars, crusaders, or giant dinosaurs.

    But thank God for the tuning slide. It makes it all right again.
