Pros: sound, even from top to bottom, intonation, quality, price
Cons: E/Eb's a bit low but not bad

 
The first time I played it I first warmed up on my Bach Bb (37 ML) and then switched to the Lawler. The differences were immediate and unquestionable.
Agility:
The slots on this horn are quite different from the Bach. In fact, the slots are more like my Yamaha Chicago C than anything. Each note feels the same and has the same level of resistance which makes slurring a breeze and accuracy not a problem.
Sound:
The sound of the Model T is hard to describe. I let a few friends try the horn and their immediate response was that it sounded like a flugelhorn. But that was not my impression at all. I should say that I play a GR Haefner 1HX which is not a small mouthpiece, and the horn isn't dark for me. It isn't too bright either. Compared to my Bach it is far more colorful and has a much better balance of highs and lows. I've tried Yamaha, Schilke (almost every model), Bach, and some other Bb's and this one has the most colorful and resonant sound.
Intonation:
The intonation on this horn is pretty much spot on. The E/Eb on top staff are a little low, but the G/A/B/C are all right on. Great even tone on all of these notes too.
Finish:
I got my Model T in raw brass, but I will probably have it plated at some point. My hand was turning a little bit green yesterday.
Oh yeah, I actually played it on a concert the same day I received it, and it worked better than my Bach.

Pros: Responsive, Nice Core, Value
Cons:

 
This horn is one of the most responsive and easily "colored" horns I've ever played. Nice middle-of-the-road sound; Be dark and fluffy or bright and big- every dynamic level is even and has a solid core to the sound. Intonation is flawless, slots very smoothly and evenly. Great for everything- small group jazz, big band lead/section, chamber, classical, you name it. I haven't found a weakness for this horn yet!

Pros: Lawler
Cons: takes time to get one

 
I purchased Model-T after speaking with other Pros in the area. Several pro (one even works in music sales non lawler). All raved about the horns production, quality, and sound production. Valve systems same as Monette. The sound production has blown everyone away with ease of slotting, and intonation. Here everyone wants one!It is worth the wait.

Pros: Tone, slotting, fit & finish
Cons: none

 
I have had my T only five days, I'm a comeback player not a pro, and have been playing a Bach 37. This horn is absolutely beautiful, hard to put it down! The sound is much different(fatter) than the Strad, the quality is fantastic, and Roy Lawler is a first class guy in every way. Even though it's more horn than I'll be able to use, it's a rush to be able to own one of these instruments.If you play one, you'll be hooked!

Pros: Response, Intonation,Price
Cons:

 
i am a high school player that needed a good-all around horn for the school jazz band and for the small group jazz band i started. i found this horn right of the bat to to be really responsive. It really didn't "back up" on my high notes like alot of horns do.and i also would've expected to pay much more for the amount of horn i got. if you have the patience to wait on one you won't be disapointed!

Pros: Affordable considering what you get.
Cons: Asthetic Options limited during building time.

 
Guys this is a fantastic model. I've had mine for two and a half years now and can honestly say that in the realm of custom trumpets this is phenominal for the price you pay. It is SOO functional and versital and blends like you wouldn't belive. you can get as many different timbres out of it as you want to produce, given You have the capabilety. I'm very happy with my horn. And the amazing valves just might be my favourite part of the horn.

Pros: Getzen valves, perfect intonation, color of sound
Cons: on the dark side

 
Bought the horn because of the references to sounding like a Comittee. While it's been years since I played a Martin Comittee, I didn't think this horn sounded like a Comittee. It is darker (more low overtones prevelent in sound), it has a real sizzle when you push the upper dynamics. The step bore does take some adjustment to play properly, but the results are worth it. This horn has the ability to color the sound better than most I've played. The step bore really gives control in the pp playing as well. Couldn't really get the horn to blend well in concert band sessions, but for all other playing it is a well balanced horn. Roy has a staggering array of options that could further enhance this horn (Rose brass, Gold Brass, more open leadpipe etc). I'll be keeping this one - Thank you very much.
