Jacob and I had a wide-ranging discussion, including his design philosophies, build philosophies, what features to look for when buying a horn, the advantages of a Schmidt wrap horn, the advantages of an ascending third valve horn, and much, much more. Jacob even made me a couple pour-over coffees. It was a terrific discussion, and quite amiable.
