I've noticed a number of posts lately from individuals trying out horns in stores indicating that they had a hard time really hearing the horn. In looking back to the last two stores I visited to play horns, one had a tryout room that was solid walls with a very, very, very high ceiling. To the unexperienced, all of the echoing would make one think the horn sounded fabulous -sort of like singing in the shower. To me, it seemed to be designed as a sales ploy -making young kids sound (in their own ears) far better than they actually sound. The other store that I visit doesn't have tryout rooms -you just play in the store -more of a "real" sound situation. Just curious if any of you had experienced shops where the tryout rooms were well designed and helpful -or places where they were essentially worthless.
