I also had to have an early R9 shortened (#27). I think the early horns had a tendency to be flat with larger mouthpieces.

I believe much of the development was done by a player using a 2G which may have had something to do with this.

If you only have to cut 2 tubes instead of four, it isn't too bad.  Just take off the crook, trim, put it back on and make sure you don't screw up the alignment.

I screw that up, but I have seen a couple of slide guys do this really well and really quick.

Cheers,
Andy

Yup, very easy. Slides were very straight said the repairman, no wear on the inside of the outer tubes at all
