In Reply to: Anyone played the (big) Cerveny 701 posted by at Dillon? on July 26, 2002 at 17:14:11:
Yep - I did, but just for a few minutes. It is a big horn, but not all that heavy. It has a big sound, much more like an American horn than the German horns I tried. It has a much sweeter (maybe not as dark ) tone, at least in my opinion.
You will definately want to use a tuba rest with this one. Unless you are a BIG feller.
If you want a large horn with a big tone, this is it. This 701, the Alexander (also at Dillon's) and a Conn 20J all have a big even tone. If you prefer a dark German sound take a look at the M Weston 25 or even the new King (thats only my opinion)
