    Well, I still am in a refund period for my Xeno, but I do not know if it would, necessarily, be feasible. And, besides - the closest place to try one is in Texas.

    When the Blue Devils came nearby, I actually tried out the Flair. I wanted to run out with it, but ironically, in comparison, the Xeno worked better for me. Different horns work different for different aliens.

    Yeah, different horns, different mpcs -- most people find what works for them -- and they can tweak that at sometime. So if you found a combo that works for you --awesome!!!!!!!!!

    The flairs are nice and all, but they dont have what a Bach strad has. Haha, did you see that I added a new horn to the mix?

    The Wendy's Triple Bacanator combo works best for me. Ketchup and cheese only, though. Large fry, of course; oh, and do not forget the coke.

    But, my Director has been a Strad player all her life. I am in the Wind Ensemble and I am the only one, and another, that does not have a Strad. She recommends strads all the way. Well, she does not favor me getting a Xeno, but I need to get a trumpet that works for me and will for a long while. And, down the road when this Xeno has had its playing time, I will build my first custom trumpet (But, I am not even going to think about that, at all, now.) Just spent $2k on a brand new trumpet, not necessary to be talking about another one unless you want to pay for it :) My flute gal said no. :) Oh, and I tried the Bach Strad - it did not work for me or I did not work for it. I have been a Holton player, first, and Yahama, and now going to a Xeno Yahama :)

    He means a Olds Recording. Cant go wrong with them. Then you will forget about the Xeno and never think of any other horn, except a Taylor.
