I've come into the market of buying a new horn and noticed that one I'm interested in has an ovate tuning slide, but it doesn't look like it goes as far down the leadpipe as it should. The Genesis by Getzen has a leadpipe that looks too short. I've compared it to the man who sports ovate tuning slides more than any other manufacturer, Dave Monette. Looking at his tpts and the Genesis, you can see where the Getzen's lacking. Now mind you, this one has an interchangeable tuning slide, so I guess if it's that far sharp, I could pull out the leadpipe a bit, but does that affect the playability much?
Obviously I'm asking people who have played the Genesis before. I'm open to trumpeters with experience on the edwards generation x on the count they're basically the same instrument.
