Edge-braced "Bach-Style" tenor with a conventional rotor valve.

Could be very interesting, depending on pricepoint. I suspect that the lack of Edge-Bracing is why I have found myself unable to make friendly with the Getzen 3047s I've tried, while liking every "real" Edwards I've tried quite well.

Discuss.

(This question was actually asked in the other thread referenced above, but I thought the title of this thread made it the better thread to resurrect.)

Hornguys Daily Menu: 4047DR  $3355,  arrival May
http://www.hornguys.com/menutbn.php

This puts it $400 higher than the 3047AF/AFR.

I'm guessing the "R" in 4047DR means rose bell, but then what does the "S" stand for ?

Sorry, typo, fixed now, 4047DS is right.  I don't know what the letters stand for.  It has a yellow brass bell.  I tried one at NAMM, though it wasn't the final version.  They will do some ergonomic adjustments to the trigger.  I'm surprised they tout this as a Bach style horn (new bell mandrel too) but it has an unsoldered bell rim like a classic Elkhart Conn.  To me it didn't play like what I was expecting from the press release.  I would like to try it in a quieter environment.  I believe this new bell is also used on the new Capri model 547, also due out in spring.

Best,

SF

I wonder how it will compare to the "artisan" line that Bach is working on. This will be interesting.

Getzen has a page up for it now,

http://www.getzen.com/trombone/customreserve/4047ds.shtml

I would certainly like an opportunity to play one in a nice place and see how it goes.

I wonder what the Getzen "Powerbore" rotor is like. I would also be curious as to how different it is from their standard rotor, and if they are planning on switching out the rotors on the Eterna series to this new rotor. It would also be nice to see it as an option on Edwards horns, though many probably would want the Rotax valve, with the reputation it has.

This is the first Getzen/Edwards horn since the T-396A that I actually am interested in trying out.
