The sucker is D-E-A-D. The horn SUCKS, it does not blow. A tuba player with emphasema makes more noise. I hereby declare the Stebel Nautilus a BIG WASTE OF MONEY. I am going to replace it with Framm knock-offs from Harbor Freight. They cost less than a quarter the money, are nearly as loud and last at least ten times as long. Anybody else put one on six months or so ago have it turn into a wheezer, too? Or is it just me?
