Shires Marshall Gilkes

Would love to try one! A few differences to the Michael Davis horns, notably the screw bell, .500 bore, 1.0 tuning slide, brass outers on the slide and different bracing. The bell seems similar size to the MD+ but I’m sure there’s a few more differences in there.

I'm guessing it refers to the slide braces being 2 pieces instead of three. I'm just basing this of the picture though, so I might be wrong.

I knew they were planning a Q Contra, weird that they chose such a small bore and pitched it in Bb.
