Check the archives and you'll find plenty on the Horn.
General concensus = Fabulous sounding/projecting/sings-in-all-registers instrument, let down by horribly poor upper-register intonation. Otherwise a whole bunch more folks would be playing the Apollo I guess.
The archives reveal VMI were aware of the pitch problems and were to be bringing out a tweaked version. Has this happened?? I believe one site has the bell size as 17" rather than the original 19"; anything in that I wonder??
I would also be interested in this horn if it had a decent scale...
