The Briz TP is a quantum leap forward for horn designers world wide. This is the first horn where not only the bell tail is made from a single piece of tubing, but ALL the tuning slides are as well. This incredibly difficult feat means that there are few soldered joints in the horn - thus fewer obstructions and a far smoother inner diameter.
On top of all this is the hand hammering - and I truly mean Hand hammered. Most 'hand hammered' bells are done using a mechanical hammer which the technician controls and manipulates the bell underneath. Briz decided to do this all truly by hand. Each hammer mark is done, one at a time, with a small peen hammer - resulting in a fabulous sound with amazing overtones AND a distinctive look. The bell tail and tapered section of the leadpipe is similarly constructed.
The valves - well, they're amongst the best made. Period. Each horn is checked for compression and fitting and they all measure 0.2 or less.

I recently purchased the 2000TPY (yellow brass w/satin finish), which is an absolutely gorgeous instrument! The horn plays quite well and produces a wonderfully rich sound. It's comparable to many of the other top horns available worldwide, and I don't believe the BRIZ 2000TP model horns will be available at this price point for long. Definitely worth the cost! Try one for yourself today!
