    We bought one of these for our son when he ended his association with a music group and the one he was borrowing needed to be returned. He's had it now for 9 months and is absolutely bowled over with it. He says it's easy to play, the valves are responsive, the tone is fantastic and people who hear it say it sounds really rounded. I know nothing so don't ask me, but it does sound damn good! Great customer service from Steve, he'll see you right. Don't look any further - this is great.
