I think they are great horns, as well as the 4 valve version the 5j
If i found one for sale i would buy it.
They have a cool sound in small groups, id like it for dixieland playing
the get on a mic and tape because, i think, that there are a lot of mid range
they are definitely a smaller sounding horn but the sound is compact and progects.
light weight, great for standup gigs.
and you can get at the 1st valve slide for fine tuning, even the CCs andBBs.
great false tones (EEb down to BBBnatural).
Let me know if you decide not to get it
