Sig,

Two things: 1) They're not a 54 copy, definitely a Serie II.

2) They're already starting to up the prices. I got last year's price from Tim simply because he didn't have any in stock for me to buy until after the first.

As a side note, I went and picked mine out last week. I played three of them, and the thing that I noticed was that they're VERY consistent. I picked mine because it seemed to respond slightly better than the other two, but not that much. If I didn't know better, I would have thought that Tim handed me the same horn three times.

It should be here any day now.
