Anyone else notice it? I can't believe it wasn't made for Randall! He may be slipping...:bluewink:

I think it might be Randall's horn; didn't he sell it a while ago? That's the first thing I thought; I might be crazy, though.

Unless JK made another one, that's my old horn. It really is a special one, and I bought it from Mr. Keilwerth himself.
Frankly, from a playing standpoint, I far preferred the Yani A 9937. I bought this born right before I got to play the Inderbinen alto, and the JK was just anti-climactic after that.

Always amazes me what some sellers consider "new". Even if they say "new other". It appears to have nickel plated keywork like the vintage models rather than the regular silver plated Shadow keywork....

It has flat grey matte keywork and black pearls.
Altogether a very beautiful horn. The case is like an anvil and weighs a ton. It even has a velvet covering cloth built into the lid to cover the horn.

...should have done this on all shadows in my opinion. It looks nicer and would have stayed that way. Oh well, too late now...just sayin'.

Seriously though, it's rare you come across a horn where if you added tiger stripes to its finish, it would actually make it less gaudy.

What is it with Solid Sterling Silver ? The Horns I've played that were SS were less vibrant than their brass counterparts. The NS Keilwerth Tenor was a lively horn and I'm surprised that Keilwerth has stopped making them, but thats another topic. I'll take a Brass S-20 over a Silver-Sonic, although the Sonics look nicer. IMO the Solid Sterling dampens the horn, for classical that may be ok I guess.
