    "SKAIN" is a nickname of his. Very nice looking horn.

    I think there isn't a first-slide ring because the horn plays close enough in-tune that it doesn't need it for any of the notes us mere mortals need to adjust for. I think his RAJA doesn't have one either

    Dave know exactly what to do, to make a trumpet look cool! And sound great!
    It seems to me, that the bell is a bit red! New material maybe!

    They say that the bell is the same alloy as a Raja. That means it is bronze.

    That's one laid-back looking horn. No gold plating, no jewels or gemstones. Just some expertly bent brass. VERY nice...

    Expertly bent brass - hmm, I reckon they got the lengths, I.D. and alloy pretty right too. Oh to be good enough to do it justice :-(.

    Right Ted. I think he gets it all right. My comment was meant to convey the fact that the trumpet is basic in design (no fancy braces or ornate designs as seen in other custom jobs) but in the hands of an expert (delivering the product to another expert) the end result can be extraordinary.
