    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!

    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.

    Regards, Stuart.

    Favourite?

    Don't really like the word. But I am starting to like the Wild Thing again.
