    Re: stuffy horn

    Bwanabrass - this has to be my favorite horn and I have had plenty of horns. I've owned at least 4-5 strads, many L.A. Benges, a Bel Canto, Schilke S32, 2 Chicago Benges, a Lawler C7c and several other horns. This is the only horn that took an acclimation period and to be honest the first week after I bought it I thought that I had made a huge mistake. After I got used to it I put up a great Chicago Benge. This horn really fits just about every venue that I can think of. It just seems to have a core to its sound that none of my other horns have had. The only horn that came close was a K.Allmen .462 bore that Charlie Melk put his lead pipe on and gave a PVA to. I bought this horn used over 2 years ago and it had supposedly been tweaked by Fred Powell, don't know what he did but the horn just flat works for me. Give one a try, hopefully you can spend a week with it before deciding if it works for you. I am a firm believer that there is no perfect horn or m.p. that works for everyone, we all are different therefore we need different equipment. Good Luck

    Make sure there are no holes in the tubing..."stuffy" sound on only certain valve combinations may give a clue.
