Out of tune. Not recommended.
on August 15, 2016
The compressor looked like it might have been returned before as the ink on the label was smudged, but otherwise looked okay. It's true that this kit doesn't come with wiring on a momentary switch, but I didn't have an issue with that as it was a good excuse to get some quality 12 gauge wire and a decent low profile switch instead of that cheap one that comes recommended with this.
The compressor works okay for now (it's only been installed for one day) and I managed just fine with the short amount of tubing included, cut in equal lengths, but here's where this kit gets 2 stars. The compressor hits notes at about twice the speed as it should and while you can definitely hear Dixieland, proving that the right tones are being triggered in the right sequence, it sounds like 2 of the horns are out of tune.
I'm going to try to tune the horns myself by shortening a couple then see what I can do about dropping the voltage to the compressor to slow it down a bit. I'll probably end up breaking the cheap plastic horns in the process, but it's not like it really works right now anyway.
