In Their Own Words

Craig Konicek

"I have played many horns as a professional trumpet player - including horns of fellow players - and I feel that the Gen X is the best horn out there today. From the first 3 or 4 notes I played on it, I knew something was different about this horn. It was not only the ease of playing it but the sound is... just better. This horn makes it fun to play trumpet. I play a variety of styles, including lead trumpet, cornet solos, concertos, jazz, etc., and the Gen X allows me to do it all on one horn and have a great time doing it."
