"I think I'm quite guilty here of what I've complained about others doing in the recent past...trying to discuss stuff about which no definite conclusion can be made."
Correct you are, all that prior sarcastic crap aside. One point is that "different" doesn't in itself automatically mean "worse." And a horn that any old button-pusher can honk on is NOT NECESSARILY "easier to play"....and a professional's choice in instrument is also not necessarily something any old button-pusher can play either.
Another point is that we Americans ARE inherently parochial about stuff like this, and I'd venture to say that manufacturers would take us more uniformly seriously without all the self-impressed b.s. that you and Baker tended to present in this thread. Can you think of any other reason why an extra 2" of pipe isn't designed into those horns? When you guys imply smak about manufacturers this way, are you REALLY trying to say you think THEY are stupid? If not, you sure sound like it!
