it's great to see one on a Victor as Brandon posted.


Here's the full photo - I'm the second owner and the machine was purchased from the dealer with this horn installed! I absolutely love it, even if it is slowly killing me... :lol:

Mmmm... Doesn't that put a different spin (pardon the pun) on a Victor? Your horn has the more uncommon (for Tea Tray) petaled ends rather than scalloped, and a yellow/white "flower effect" absent from mine. I don't blame you - what a way to go! :)

I joined the Arsenic crowd today and wanted to share, (sorry about the grainy pictures, much nicer in person). Green being my favorite color, I will ignore the arsenic.

Sort of gives new meaning to the refrain of that Roberta Flack tune, yes?
