Lawson horns, with their signature velvety sound quality, are excellent purchases and with proper maintenance last a very long time. The expert craftsmanship is apparent on the brand, and this double horn is no exception.
It is constructed of a lacquered Ambronze with a fair amount of lacquer deterioration (no effect on the sound whatsoever). All of the components are original Lawson parts, including a duckfoot and detachable bell with a Lawson/Alexander bell ring set. The valve compression is very good at about 1.5, with fluid action in the levers and on all slides. The horn comes with a Lawson detachable bell horn case.
