I played one at this year's ITEC. Kinda like the old "New Standard"s. 3 plus 1 valve set-up like a 981, but with a 17" bell (off the 983?) Focused well with a slightly smaller sound. I'm sure a fine small group/solo horn if you like the 3/1 valves. I found it a bit "stuffier" than a 981 or 983, but so many factors do effect this.
