    Please try and get there. I played 2 of Hubs instruments a couple of weeks ago (a Bb and a C) very fine indeed!
    Even if you are not in the market for a new horn, at least the "experience" should be in your collection! Even better, write a post on your experience so that potential buyers have some additional info!

    Erik, will you be there?

    No, hopefully next time when Hub is visiting the ITG. But Chuck is there so that should be fun!

    I'm glad you liked Hub's horns. His fanclub is growing fast. Last time I checked he had 108 horns on order...

    I own a Hub van Laar B7 Bb horn. Although I had some doubts about me playing a large build horn, I immediatly heared the fullness and richness of the sound I produced on it. The projection, the full yet bright higher register and the buildquality of the horn at last made me purchase the instrument. Now, 4 months later I'm really enjoying the horn more after each moment of playing. Although I needed some time to get used to the instrument, coming from a ML King Silver Flair, I know don't want anything else. I now understand the popularity of Hub's horn. For that price, you can't get any better. Mark
