Accessory Testimonials

Alex, I received the 470 bore round tuning slide for my Zeus G B-flat today. I immediately put the slide in and played. What I heard and felt was absolutely amazing. First; The balance of the horn in the hand improved. it wasn't an issue to begin with, but you could definitely feel the difference. Second; I could feel the horn respond all the way back to the hand. Third; The pitches centered with little effort and the horn "sang" like it had never done before. Again the wasn't a negative issue with the horn and the square slide, but it improved so much with the rounded slide. Fourth; The articulation was cleaner, and spoke quickly. Fifth; The slotting improved up to G above high C. Sixth; The trumpet was very free blowing. Now I have two B-flat lacquer Zeus G trumpets for the price of a little more than one. Alex, let me know when the round slide is ready for the C Trumpet. I would like to have it shipped immediately. Thanks again for making my trumpet playing fun!!!        Mike Daniell,   Fayetteville, GA

Last night my new valve caps and tuning slide arrived for my new ZeuS. WoW, they really make quite a difference. I thought the horn was fabulous to begin with, but the valve caps have really improved things far beyond my expectations. The curved tuning slide seems to take some of the edge and brightness off of the upper register. It really is like having 2 different horns for the cost of a tuning slide. I can see where either the standard or the custom slide can be helpfull, depending on the playing situation. I will keep the valve caps on regardless of any situation. I can't wait to try this new slide at the pit orchestra rehearsal tonight. I don't deserve a horn this good.    James Rick (IL)
