    I’m no expert either but on their earlier Severinsen models, Getzen used standard water keys instead of Amados

    That is a first run Severinsen. That is why it has traditional water keys just like mine (Amados didn't come until later). That's a an excellent horn and a very good price. I do see one bell bow dent that's relatively easy to fix. It has the special case with the music folder/writing table. If I wanted a Severinsen from that era, that looks like a good prospect. So are there any "red flags"? Just in a few of these comments.ROFLROFLROFLROFLROFLROFL

    It also had two tuning slides.

    Anybody know what KSL.com is?
