The sonorous sound convinced me with the valve open. H
Here, the axial-flow valve appears to have advantages over conventional rotors. If the valve is lush and often oil, it runs well, although comparatively slowly. If you forget the oil, it quickly becomes sluggish and tough. The mechanism is rattle-free and solid.
The train runs quite well, if it is not quite synonymous to the Yamaha trains -Y. Is the open quality model of this Chinese manufacturer. In terms of processing, they are already quite close, the soldering points are definitely clean, the paint is robust.
Unfortunately, I've already lost twice the small valve stop - and luckily always found again. This does not happen in my experience with Yamaha.
Naturally, large-bore trombones with thayer have a voluminous tone, so that it needs some work upwards if you like me at the moment. 1. Pos in a big band plays with it. The approach is really good, so a clean piano without much "Nebenluft" is possible.
I could compare the Sierman directly to the corresponding Edwards in Treppendorf: Of course, the American sounds a bit brighter, speaks altogether a little easier, the original Thayer valve is somewhat faster and "crisp". But it costs just four times. Whoever needs to earn money with the instrument, the Edwards has to buy, an amateur will not create a noticeable difference for the listener.
The price / performance ratio is really good - unlike the US instruments ....
Supplement after four months:
For two months the chromium plating at the contact points has largely disappeared. I use there now grip for tennis racquets (HEAD - is really good!).
The screw connections must be kept in mind: they clink when they come loose.
I replaced the valve stops: cork with 7mm diameter is better than the silicone that was in it before.
The valve is largely problem-free, except that it rattles with fast actuation, as if the linkage somewhere pushing, which can be however with quiet viewing actually not be. A riddle so far.
The sound is still fantastic! I am surprised that thomann does not sell much more often.
