"This is by far a great bari. The intonation is excellent. The feel is great. The key action is extremely smooth. The low A mexhanism is by far the best around. The low A key is big and won't pinch your thumb like some other makes. This horn will work well in a solo, small group, or big band setting. With this horn, one can go from sounding like a silky cello to an out of control locomotive in less than half a beat and vice versa."
