    This is my personal opinion after playing them this weekend at TMEA in San Antonio.

    I played both the new Strad's and the new Artisans both Bb and C at the Conn Selmer Booth.(I realize there is a Chicago and Philly; I played both as well as the Artisan C) Besides the really nice finish to the artisans I couldn't feel or notice any difference in sound or slotting. I personally think it is just a sad attempt to boost sales in a slump economy. But that is just me, I really think that if you are going to drop 3k on a horn you might as well be getting a Kanstul or Shires which after this weekend are most definitely the more superior horns compared to the Artisan Bachs. And seeing as they both run about the same price which would you rather get?

    That is just me, take it as you would. I most definitely recommend trying the horns first though taking in account Bach's terrible record with incosistency.
