Thanks Slip, it's a blower!
This is the first with king style crook i've played... i dig it!
Unwrapping it was a pain - he shipped it well... and I was trying to not drop anything or screw anything up.
Serial number 30XX, single radius crook, burbank on grip, one line of info on bell EARL WILLIAMS - from what little I know about these horns, pretty sure it's a Bob - I'm a king guy and that's what what I want.
First impression: it's a beast, takes what I give it. I'm playing it in a rehearsal tonight and on a big band gig this weekend. Update to follow.
Glad you like it, good sir. I have a few other Williams around, too. Great horns, obviously. Sorry about the pain up unwrapping it...I wanted to keep shipping low and protection high!
