I got an email asking for a scale on my Michigan badge. Ill also post a pix of the Alex badge and the Willson badge. I note that those badges mention where they are located and the country. This raised a conundrum for those of us who make horns partially or mostly from parts made by other, more specialized, parts builders . Valve sections,  Bell sections, leadpipes.  Should we mention that the valves are German, or Japanese, The bell section is German, Japanese, or American? It’s sort of like saying that a Ford 150 pickup is more American even if only 55% of parts come from Canada and America. Take the parts from Canada away and where are we?
