Whatever horn I happen to have in my hands at the moment.
At one point there was a Scherzer pic. on Craigslist for 29 hundred. Looked a lot like yours, the rotaries, and all. Would have been fun, but not for the price.
This is the one I like playing the most, right now. 1955 Buescher Model 217 Lightweight 400. Effortless blow; too effortless but with the Al Cass 1-28, there's enough resistance in the mouthpiece so I'm not falling in. I've been a little shocked to see that I'm coming back from my injury very quickly.
But this isn't the one that flares out at the bottom of the valve casing? I though that was also a Buescher 400.
Buescher's 'The 400' is actually a model 225 (I was confused by that too) = the one with the flaired valve casings. The lightweight 217 is obviously different and lighter!
Most beloved horn?... Haven't found it yet.
Currently Holton ST301 which I will be playing on Big Band gig on sunday. If I go back to playing trumpet in orchestra. Selmer Radials Bb, C, D, Eb. I have a soft spot for my first pro trumpet Selmer B700L, purchased new 1986, played it tonight, really do not need anything else.
Don't really like the word. But I am starting to like the Wild Thing again.
Absolutely gorgeous! Makes me want to make another purchase. Wow!
Right, this the iconic Buescher 400:
