Pros: Lightweight bell that really sizzles! Great valves!!
Cons: The lightweight bell can show wear...

 
A shockingly good horn. The bell is really rings and the blow is easy (at least on my horn). I'm at least the third owner but this horn is a great playing little horn. If you can get your hands on one and it's in good shape it's surely worth the money. I'm guessing that the MF horns shared some common elements with this horn. It's considered an intermediate but plays much better, in my opinion.

Pros: Pro quality and play. Large singing bell, Huge voice
Cons: none now

 
The T-401 is somewhat known to have an occasional 'sprung' example in early builds. Although it didn't present itself during quality control testing, it did within a short time of horn use. Owners that found difficulty were given later run models w/o the problem and the returned horns were sold as seconds. I purchased my horn, basically brand new for around $200 with tax . $50.00 later I had one of the top 3 horns I've ever played for peanuts. Its solid core, rich tonality and amazing ability to both play with the exact musicality that I am feeling (following) and at times,pull me to a better than usual level of play(leading)...well, there's a reason that it has supplanted the Olds Super as my big band and dance band horn as well as my Connstellation for jazz. Its just a rare horn.
