The Custom Pope-Balu Alliance model Briz 2000SC is the flagship model by this amazing company. Truly a hand made instrument - all the tapered sections of the horn are made by taking flat sheets of brass, cutting them by hand, wrapping them around a mandrel and brazing the seam together. This labor intensive method of making a horn insures that the wall thickness of the tubing never varies. Most horns these days are made by simply drawing a pre-drawn tube over the tapered mandrel - thus thinning the brass as the diameter increases.
The bell on this model is spun to give the horn extra 'weight' for an increased tonal dynamic range.
This horn is made of unlacquered (NO lacquer) yellow brass and features a Lawson style bell ring. The main tuning slide has the added luxury of tuning 'guides' etched lightly into the slide.
This horn competes directly with horns costing twice as much. Try this horn before you consider an Engelbert Schmid double, I think you'll be shocked!
Flight case is included.
This has a beautiful combination of matte on the body and high polish on the slides.
Red Brass available on Special Order.
