Well just to keep it going.
I’ve played only this new Mendini for well I guess the tim of this thread.
Figure I’ll give a bit of a review since none really exist
Seems with all Chinese horns one of the valve stems are not in the center of the cap.
This is the second time a Chinese trumpet came to me where one of the casings were rotated so the valve guide was 30°out from the others
Two different serial numbers stamped on the same casing?
Slides still move quite well as do the valves.
Gloves don’t fit!
Just a thought though...
I wonder if they sound as good out front as they do from 8” behind the bell
