GE Cast K5HL's

Postby Mafarnz » Mon Jun 05, 2017 12:54 pm

As reported on Facebook a few days ago by Brandon Warnick, apparently GE is now casting their own K5HL horns. These are copies of K bells that have only the GE logo and the number on the bell, and only the GE logo on the back cap. It has been reported that there has not been a change in sound from the current Micro Precision K5HL. Brandon also provided photos of one of the GE #3 bells, reposed below. An interesting development, shades of the old Prime horns vs Leslie horns story.

Yet another variant of K horns to keep track of!

Nathan is making these for GE. So with that said nothing is different except for the GE logo instead of the Nathan Airchime logo.
