Pros: very efficient, good valves, lots of extras, lightweight
Cons: none

 
I played Roger's personal horn at the NAMM convention. I found it uncannily similar to a Yamaha 6310/8310Z Bobby Shew (probably for several hundred less). This is well made and quite stunning to look at.

Pros: $Price$, great valves, very well built, rose brass leadpipe, b1 bell, blows extremely smooth, beautiful horn
Cons: none

 
THE best horn I have ever played. A Yammie or Bach similar to the 1600i would cost $2500+. I got lucky, found it for $500 (price error online), normally $1700. Valves are very smooth, Jupiter does a wonderfull job with these new XO horns. The 1600i is very solid and well built, feels great in hand.

My only complaint is the bore is too small for my preference, but I'm getting used to it!

Incredible horn!
