    My "success" story. Had a tiny Bach cornet. Hit a wall. Bought the Getzen 700 Eterna II after earning the $. Love the horn...:D

    707 was a LeBlanc/Courtois model but not any Getzen that I know of.

    The only three digit Getzen I'm aware of is the 907 Proteus. Nice horn, possibly a typo in the ad? Try a Getzen and you wont be sorry. Best wishes.

    Yep, you're not alone there.

    Also the Capri 590 is a good option as a new entry horn - they have all the fruit for a good player. Probably does not carry the reputation of the 700 series, but a cheaper option to get into a new Getzen.

    A good used 707 Sonic would certainly be a nice choice, but they are a little hard to find. The OP can research 700 series Getzens here: Getzen : Trumpet : 700 Series
