Revisiting a horn that got alot of "Buzz" when it was introduced a couple of years back. Now that the dust is settled, what is the verdict ? Good horn ? Anyone currently using one ?

Yeah, I was wondering about that, too.

Shame that only 160 were ever made - it looked like a interesting Wild Thing-like horn. Seems like it's hard to find a horn that kinds of fills the same niche today.

I’m curious about these horns too. I would be a buyer if Lynn were to do another production run.

It's actually my favorite horn. Sounds like a big bore but the blow is more like a medium bore. I took lessons from Lynn when he was still doing in-person lessons back in the day at his house and learned the MF protocol from him. He corrected a lot of chop problems for me. If you use the MF protocol, the horn sizzles in the upper register. I was using a Stomvi S3 prior to that as my regular horn but the Lynnzhorn is just amazing. The overtones you can get with this horn are phenomenal.

A friend of mine has one and let me try it. It's a very nice, well-made horn. Not entirely my cup of tea, but very nice.

A friend of mine owns one. I tried it and while it played ok, it felt really cheap. He only had it for a couple years and it was already showing excessive finish wear.
