    I have to add..... I have a recording I love, butter, smooth, like a soft breeze.... Then I pick up a 34 super, used to belong to a lady band leader in LA, wide tone ring, light, plays lead, above the frey, sticks the notes, clear, singing tone, slots perfect..... Then..... Ta Da! I grab my 34 Super Recording.... My knees go wobbly, I start to think I'm a player, I could get a gig with this tone, I feel like I had two lessons and did long tones for an hour a day for 6 months... What tone, what ease, what a horn.......... My life is complete.... :-)

    I second this idea. The Getzens are great, add a PVA and you will be amazed. I have found them used for students in the $400-$500 range.

    BTW When you get your B1, consider taking it to Schilke alumni Dr. Valve (Steve Winans) for a valve alignment.
