This seems to be the first significant re-design of Adolphe Sax's creation. I have seen him work on this for years. Does this mean it is ready to go into production?

I too have been a fan for years. I would love to have the resources to acquire one of these horns one day ( I remember also that in the past there was an integrated mouthpiece which, if I remember well required no cork with a conical fitting, that seems to have disappeared in time along with many other modifications of the original design).

Jim Schmidt and Benedikt Eppelsheim are the only revolutionary innovators that the woodwind world has seen since Sax and Theobald Böhm.

The problem was always cost ($10,000 was the figure which always floated around) and the convincing people to learn a different instrument.
