Review: I have an old LA Benge Bb, that I love, so I bought a new Leonore 90C, silverplate, from DillonMusic "closeout" pricing. Horn played well, nice tone, quick valves, as expected. However, this PARTICULAR horn had some serious plating issues, i.e. plating was actually missing from the bottom of 3rd. valve and around tubing joints. ALL of the places were marked in black grease-pen, so I don't know IF Benge Quality Control "caught" the issues, but then this horn still slipped away from them into the market...or what. I returned it for full refund. This LACK of Quality Control scared the heck out of me.
