Thanks Pete, This is a new horn out of the box. It was developed by a well, known youtube, sax influencer. He developed this horn w/ conn-selmer. Like I said, it does play well, has a lot of nice design feature's, I just can't get past the crooked bell. I did contact him about this, and while he did not say it was designed that way, said that the bell's on all horn's, are not aligned perfectly the same. Which I am fully aware, I realize that one or another, could be off, or different by a centimeter or 2 or 3, but not like this! If you sight up, from the bottom of the bow, using the point, of the reinforcement strip, aligninging with the body of the horn,.. this bell is off by alot. I don't want to use the designer's name, and I do have the option to return the horn, I just wanted to get some feed-back from some other sax aficionado's, before I send it back or keep it, or ask for another.
