" I am thrilled and impressed with the quality of my new Lukas horn. The ease of response throughout all registers is remarkable and intonation is right on the money. I love that whether I'm playing a barely there pianissimo or the most dramatic fortissimo, the horn allows me to maintain a beautifully ringing core to the sound. I am so pleased to have found a horn that lets me expand the limits of my artistry.
Thank you Dan, for making such a fine instrument!

" The Lukas horn has a beautiful tone in all ranges and dynamic extremes. Legato phrases are extremely smooth, articulated notes speak clearly and respond quickly.
Above all, the Lukas horn is fun to play.
I have found the horn to be well suited for the Chicago Symphony Orchestra and for solo and chamber music."

"It has been a joy to pick up my Lukas horn every day. Even across the registers, with colorful sounds that project well, it makes my job easier and more fun.But I also have to mention Dan is a tireless worker with a thirst for knowledge, unwillingness to settle and a knack for customer service. He hasn't just provided a great instrument, but a continuing relationship to help make the horn my own. Very blessed by his work"
