Olympus ARL       Netherlands

Dear Alex, thank you for making musical instruments, especially trumpets. This afternoon I had a go at the Olympus for the first time. This combination of brass, tubing, pipes, bends, valves, springs and what not is a configuration that everybody should try. No sorry, not everybody, only those people who care about the sound, feel and heart of a trumpet. I hope I can call myself one of those, because I'm going to buy the ABL. This is great. So mellow and soft, so defined and piercing! It's got it all. For my purpose, being a lead trumpeter, it does the job better than the ARL, because off the brass, I think. But never the less, it is astonishing. So again I say, thank you..... Leo from Holland
