This modified Geyer/Knopf wrap by Briz is the result of many years of consulting and searching. Ion Balu and I have spent many hundreds of hours trying to find a horn which is not only affordable, but plays way out of it's league. The Briz 2000 exceeds those expectations.
Valve Compression reads below a 0.3!, Tubing bends stay perfectly round throughout, the soldering, polishing, and overall craftsmanship will take your breath away AND, it comes with a flight ready case.
Available in Yellow brass, Nickel or Gold Brass (+$200).

I love the horn. It took several weeks to 'get acquainted' with the instrument which I caught me by surprised. I still can't hit the high notes as I did with my other horn but I'm working on it. It's considerably light weight which I love as an older musician. The grip is a bit too large for my hand but with Ken's help making adjustments to the lever key and finger hook have worked.
