 Re: Which Horn Are You?...

I'm surprised you don't mention Yamaha, which would be my first port of call if I tried to play the horn again after 32 years.

I think the commonest models in shops are Yamaha and Jupiter.

I remember trying a Lidl as a kid; the strange-looking model with a long horizontal rotary across the other valve slides. Even compared to the other cheap and beaten-up instruments I'd played, it was monumentally horrid: felt like it was stuffed with cotton wool. Maybe it was.

If there are so many people on this board unwilling or unable to have a civil and balanced discussion about important issues, then I shan't bother to post here any more.

To the great relief of many of you, no doubt.
