I just bought a VMI 4 rotary valve model from Charlie (AT) Brasswind and love it.
It is a very free blowing instrument and was very surprised at the craftmanship.
I wish I had it years ago instead of my 186-4u Mirafone.

I just have one concern about intonation,however. Bottom space F is a litte sharp
and A above it is also sharp. Can this be the result of the mouthpiece setting
in too far in the larger European receiver, or a quirk of the horn? I have a
Doug Elliott mp on order with the proper shank, I'm hoping this will help.

Would also like to hear of any others out there with their experiences with VMI.
