Nice pig! Curious, is the thumb ring in a comfortable place, or does it just look really high?

CHAIR ven nee. Emphasis on first syllable. For a native speaker, it almost sounds like CHAIR ven yee (the y is more implied than spoke - it's an accent thing).

That silver one is pretty sweet. Is that factory original, or was it replated later?

Yeah, interesting.

I don't think I've ever seen a silver Cerveny of any model.

I looked into getting a silver one a few years ago. I was told that the factory wouldn't make one and that I'd have to get it in raw brass, then pay a fortune to have it prepped and plated here in the states. I opted out.

So I, too, am very curious as to how this one came to be. Let us know.

At one time you could order them with silver plating.

Cleaned up my horn because I was considering selling it. Not sure I could go through with actually letting go if it, but at least I got some good pics out of it.

A bit of a side note...........When I chose this PT3P CC, I was told by the salesman (Neil) this model was the B & S answer to the Cerveny Piggy. The Piggy had become popular (esp. in Europe) and B & S wanted a share of that market.

It's of similar proportions and exhibits many of the same characteristics proclaimed by Piggy owners. It's a compact horn with the capabilities of bigger horns. A few alternate fingerings are required (mostly in the 4th partial) but the horn responds to this quite well. Also, the 3rd partial is a bit flat but a few weeks of playing makes this go away :) Like the Piggy, it's a large bore horn (.748”-.825”) so it requires some air.

I favor pistons over rotors and find this to be a quite versatile horn. Basically, I now use it for everything from small ensembles to big symphonic bands.
Sorry if this make me a Hog in the Piggy thread.

The last time I spent any time around at PT-3, I remember thinking the bows and branches were pretty small compared to the piggy, and of course, the bore is a lot smaller through the most of the valve section (not sure which valves are "graduated")

here's a pic of the rotary version, just for comparison.
