    I played a few notes on it out in the garage because there were a lot of people in the house and I didn't want to be the center of attention. I jammed a rubber cork in the tuning slide water key and oiled the valves first. After a few notes, I pulled the 2nd slide and noticed tons of gunk. She's in the large garage sink soaking up some warm suds right now. I haven't even had time to study the bell except for seeing the word Handcraft. It appears to be the same bell as my Committee. I'll do a side by side photo tomorrow for you guys. I know I'm like a 6 year old at Christmas !

    Congrats bro' they are great horns! I let one go because the bore size was medium. I'm use to large bore. The bell was very like my early Committee. The sound was surprisingly similar to the medium bore Committee. Keep us posted.

    Congrats on the new addition to your fold. I hope to see pictures once you're able to peel yourself away from playing it.

    Congrats.
    Hopefully the suds aren't too warm and it peels the lacquer off....
