I've only been on this forum for a couple of weeks, but more than once I have seen someone dogging Getzen horns. I play a Getzen intermediate model horn and I love it. It really is a good quality horn, but I don't see why everybody dislikes them so much. It doesn't make sense. I personally don't like my friends Old Recording and when I played Van's old Bach I didn't relaly like it either. I have yet to find a horn for me that is this easy to control. I just want to some input from the oppositions side. Plus, my horn was a Sam Ash special (I know not the wisest thing I could have done buying a horn from Sam Ash). 770 SG Gold Series, Getzen. It's an intermediate, but I still really love playing it. So, just hit me up with your point of view and if you dealt with the horn before tell me some ways I could improve it. I'm not saying the horn is Stage 1 after all. But, still overall good weapon of choice.
