Interresting, I was with Chris when we drove down to Miami, FL about four years ago to get it. He rummaged through the upstairs of a huge warehouse full of junk to find all the parts to that horn. He had to bribe the owner with a case of some special, hard to find beer just to be let up on the second floor.
That horn actually sat in my friend's house, another one of Chris's students for a few months till Chris could get a chance to have it shipped to NY.
I don't know what it looks like today, but that horn was in such awfull shape back then. Jason and I tried to polish the outside of the bell and still felt we only broke one layer of Goo.
How does it look and how does it play?
