Just curious... Has anyone tried these? I've seen the pictures and heard a few clips. I hear some good things about the build.

Does anyone own one? Have any of these come up secondhand? I'm just curious, in general.

I played one about a year ago. It was my favourite on the day out of all that I tried (Yamaha 82z; TJ Raw; Lupifaro; Yani AW02) and I seem to recall that it had the most interesting, complex sound...lots to explore. I’ll stick with my SBA but it was certainly a very good instrument.

I played lots of Ishimori altos and tenors at NAMM a couple years ago and they were among the best instruments I've ever played by any manufacturer. Literally no other horn has tempted me to stray from my 82z tenor. The Ishimori did. I almost felt a little guilty.

The altos were also great, just not quite as magical to me as the tenors.

When I tried them they did nothing for me--had a modern sound similar to other Taiwanese horns, except superbly set up, since it's Ishimori.
