I owned an Amati 681BB for a number of years. It played great, good intonation, nice sound etc. I had the "American style" rotary valves not the European "clock springs". These horns came with either. The minus's were: 1. The valve throw was significantly longer than, say, a Mirafone, this inturn makes for louder valve rattle. 2. Thin brass dents easier ( as stated in another post- but this true of a lot of horns- not just Amati).
Overall a nice horn for the price range. Mine served me well. My .02
