Anyone had experience playing the Fox 500/510/520 English horns? I know the 555 is a great school horn, and a bargain. Are the pro models enough better to justify the price premium? How do they compare with Loree, etc.?
We've had the 500 for some time now, and can't say enough good about it. Great sound and intonation, good projection, comfortable keywork, excellent quality wood with very tight grain. I suppose if you were to go through 20 Lorees and find the very best of them (good luck with that), it would be worth what they charge, but for $3K-$4K less, the Fox is an incredible bargain.
