    That is pretty darn good. I need to modify my tigon tube french horn to play in the trumpet range. I'll work on it.

    Thank you for the post. My father was big on playing PVC pipes, garden hoses and copper coils.

    Calling a ML Tarr model "relatively inexpensive"? What universe does he live in and how can I get there?

    The ironic thing is that it propably was when he bought it. I've heard stories of some of the first ones going for around $50 way back when! If only...

    I paid about $100 for mine. What do they go for these days, DrZ?

    Not sure how much they are exactly. Would venture to guess ten times that much at the very least. Not many playing M&Ls these days.

    The inexpensive natural horns are over a grand. Good ones around 2..........

    Have you considered cryogenics on this horn?

    Cryogenics????? Nick, you gotta try it. I know the Physics teacher in you couldn't pass this up.

    It will make the horn play like it's "vintage"
