Far and away the best and easiest horns to play when it comes to sub-toning! Complex, rich, can whisper like no other! All modern day B&S horns have outstanding engineering, build quality and I'm sure they will outlive us all!
Yup, couldn't have said it better!

Ive only ever seen the three hole arrangement on Blue Labels
Yes, Canadiain, me the same - three hole patent on Blue Label, but I was asking about THIS 2001 (as quote in quotes).

In early 2001 there were three holes, what about the one of user -lostcircuits- , as was mentioned above (not so old version, I believe)?
Three or one hole?

You mention a patent on three holes? My 1941 King Zephyr Bari has three holes

Thanks

Aside from the Blue Labels, can't say I've seen a three ring setup. I've owned most modern B&S horns and stencils and all had a single ring.

Yes, I confirm - my B&S 2001 nr 5xx has three holes. The same like Blue Label has.

lostcircuits:
Saying 3 holes patent I meant peculiar, novel, unconventional - it looks like more brands have had it in their technology for a long time.
I'm not surprised, because it's an interesting and useful construction solution, I have been wondering why it is not widely used, it gives a comfortable balance. Anyway, in the later 2001, Medusa, etc. - brand B&S gave up 3-holes element in favor of the generally-used 1-hole sling ring.
