    The Adams valve block is both offset like the olds and ergonomic like the Radials.

    Right now they are available only in the A8 trumpets although you could try to order it in the A4 block (would require me possibly pulling some strings for you ;-).

    The block is an additional $500-ish due to the nature of the build (they are a PITA to build).

    Thank you! It did!.........That's some pretty amazing stuff!!

    I do agree with Rowuk however that for our application it is an attempt at solving a non existing problem, and unless it proved somehow acoustically beneficial, not worth the added cost and engineering.
