Pros: Light weight, great sound, good response.
Cons: The supplied case weighs a ton.

An easy playing, lightweight, great sounding bone. Excellent slide. Basically a production version of the most popular options of the Edwards custom horns, in a soldered rather than a detachable package. Good response. Interchagable leadpipes (3 supplied).

Pros: Very open free blowing horn, great sound, great feel.
Cons: None that I know of.

I purchased this horn to play primarily in an R&B and funk band. I wound up playing it for musical theater productions as well. I have to say I was impressed with the horn as soon as it was on my face. It felt great, I was able to put a comfortable amount of air through it effortlessly. Everything about the horn was effortless, and it sounded great. Having three lead pipes was great incase I was playing in a smaller jazz group or a full on in your face funk band. I wish I never sold it.
