Ok, I love it! and I hate it... I really enjoy the smooth and even response this horn has throughout the range. The intonation within the horn is remarkable, although the horn overall tends a little sharp--but who cares--that's why we have tuning slides, right? Construction--sweet! Details/finish--right on. Here's what I hate about this horn: I've owned/borrowed & demoed Bach, Yamaha, Schilke & Adams C's over the years...this one plays better than any of the above. It's upsetting to think about how much cash I have laid out for the other horns. Less than $800 for this horn seems like somethings up LOL. However, I will never refer to it as a "Unicorn"...nope, that's not happening.
One of the super finds at the 2014 NAMM was this incredible playing Brasspire Unicorn C Trumpet in silver plate.
It features a Large .462 Bore, Red Brass Bell with nice semi-flat bead, and great slide rings.
This is IMO the perfect C trumpet for the occasional player, 1st C for the student, or someone who doesn't want to deal with all the alternate fingerings needed to make a traditional C trumpet play in tune. This horn is really incredible.
