    Hi All,
    Does anybody have any experience or thoughts on these trumpets?

    My brother has one. I haven't tried it in 20 years or so, but as I recall it seemed to consume air like huffing on a baritone. My personal horn is sort of the prototype (?) for that one, same 6" bell but on a Benge MLP, it's a lot less open feeling. I happen to like it a lot, but what do I know? One thing it is is unique, and it's a horn with some history.

    I've been meaning to borrow that other horn for a bit to try it out again, but there's no guarantee that I will be able to!
