Tried it - along with everyone else's - at Chateau d'Ars salon d' instruments in 2012. It was great to play, fluid and robust, plain copy of the Lily but … significantly cheaper. Don't think Bernard made them though. He was mostly a great reed tweaker and all his kit got personnal "set up". Actually all his boxes were top value. He was very well regarded as a sound technician at French festivals.

Sadly we have lost Bernard Loffet but his website looks to be still trading.
