    It doesn't matter. If they are good, they will be more expensive than present models but still sell. If not, well, P.T. Barnum was quoted as saying "there is a sucker born every minute".

    Yeah, but before I ever consider a horn worth looking at to buy I'm concerned about a price, you dont test drive a cadillac if you cant afford to buy it ya know.

    Sure, you test drive it, if you think that's the type of car you might want to know more about. Whether or not you can afford it, it's always good to know what's out there. That way you will know whether you need to save your money (give up that Starbuck's or DD coffee each morning and put the money into a coffee can instead and you'll be amazed how much money you'll have at the end of a year!)

    And you can better advise others who might ask if you know anything about the Bach Artisan trumpets.

    I always go shopping for high ticket items when I don't have the cash immediately available. It gives me time to think. That is my safety net from the professional marketeers and ANALysts that earn their money by figuring out how to reduce my urge to be careful when spending money.

    Do you suppose the differance between this new line and the bach strads are just cosmetic?

    they said they "made the bell flatter" I have no idea what that means, other than in the pics, it seems that the lip of the bell is thicker, which any change to the bell does something to the sound and what not. Howver All I know is yes it mostly is cosmetic, engravings, the slide nuts are hexagon now, however the thumb ring? looks more comfortable than the tumb saddle. Though other than the bell being a signifigant change they extended the third valve stop for your low F#, plus you get metal and nylon guides with it. Any of yall know the difference between metal and nylon valve guides in performance? Cause I dont. Thats all the info I know.

    Your questions on this new line of hand built horns should be directed to Michael Sacks and Philip Smith. No one on this web site knows the horns better than the people who helped develop them.
