Somebody needs to teach Micro Precision a lesson in music. Horns can be beautiful, yet law-abiding.

At one time, MP showed an interest in improving the tuning of their product, and even had one of their employees join this group (or the predecessor of it) to understand what people were complaining about. They did institute some changes in the tuning (e. g. boring of the #2 bell to mitigate the extreme sharpness somewhat) and even had a website that you could use to purchase parts, horn bells (K and P) as well as complete horns (e. g. "Over The Road" K5LA which was nothing more than a standard K5LA with a restrictor in the base), baseball caps, T-shirts, etc. That is all gone now, and they have gone back to selling only to industrial customers - although if you call them they will generally sell you replacement parts as long as you don't waste their time.

It wasn't a terrible sounding horn. Its probably his own creation the way he presented it .
