    I was cruising the Hub van Laar site and noticed that you are one of their artists playing the BR4. How is it working for you? What do you like about it? How does the reverse leadpipe affect the instrument?

    Hi Ed -

    I had been playing a B2 for years. While I do have a BR4, I haven't been using it - I've been with Yamaha for a while now. Hub does make excellent stuff, and I'm still using his B3 flugelhorn.

    Thanks Ed -

    Yamaha has been turning a lot of heads. You are in good company with all the great Yamaha artists. I attended a workshop with Wayne Tanabe about 6 months ago and met Bryan Lynch a few years ago in Orlando, who sounded great on his Artist NY. What is your go-to Bb now?

    I don't think the BR4 has a reversed leadpipe. I am not 100% sure but I think only the B3 and the B6 have a rl.
    BTW the "R" is only a serial indication with Van Laar.
