Re: Griego Alessi compared to Greg Black NY cup depths

I won't name drop but there was a wonderful someone who got this info from the horse's mouth. I'll use the 1 series for example (even though the rims are different). FYI the Griegos are inbetween regular and medium GB.

GB NY1-Griego 1C
GB NY1.25-inbetween 1D-E
GB NY1.5-1F

Re: XO 1240

I'm almost certain they are NOT genuine Thayers. Not saying they are bad; the blow is actually quite respectable. Actually the sound is the best part of the XO horns, the overall build is where they are still lacking a little bit compared to other horns. Suit your self. My 1236RL-T has a genuine Th...

Re: XO 1240

I've been playing 1240RL now for about 2.5 years. I have absolutely no complaints with it. Plays real nice and has a nice big sound. No issues with range either. Blows pretty open through the vales so I imagine the 'T' version would be even better in that respect. Quality and build are strictly top...

Re: WTT: Shires Q series Bass Valve Section

What if you cut down the tuning slide tubes? The actual Blair valves have just about the same width (visual estimation) but short ts legs. You would lose the little rings at the end of the female sides and maybe have to move that brace.
