    You know, I agree with you. I think Dave's horns are beautiful, but some of the presentation instruments are a little too heavy on the bling for my taste. Although the carving of the Mississippi River on the Elysian trumpet is stunning.

    Looks great, but why does it look so old and why does it look like it was crafted by a 5 year old.... the horn is all bent in places and oddly shaped.

    Dave, like most artisans is still 5 years old at heart plus all the experience his 50+ age brings. Being that young means that you look with very open eyes and ears. Each product is proof that this concept works.

    The bends are that way because they help make the horn sound like Dave wants it to. Changing the bend changes the sound and blow.

    Wyntons horn is available in gold plate (and with a thumb ring) if shinier is important.
