    Hi all,

    I know we have chewed this over and over but , here I am asking for help .

    I have a student in the 6th grade (grandson) His mom has been renting a horn since he started ,now she wants to step him up a little ,and dump the rental fee .I offered him my Coprion bell Director ,but of course he wants something shiny. :evil:
    The only thing he wants is a silver horn , I would like to get him a Bach Strad but I'm choking on the price a little:shhh:.

    So i'm wondering if the Bach Prelude would be a decent enough horn for him ,I don't think at this stage he could tell the difference in a student/pro horn ,I just don't want to get a tso that will be difficult for him .

    Or there may be other horns that i could look at .


    Thanks

    There are many acceptable student horns available in silver finish. Get something you know to be a good horn and that will take care of him until he's ready to move up to a pro horn. I would shop around and buy the most cost effective horn I could find, made by a reputable brand of course.

    I sold this one to a kid (and his dad) who was just starting seventh grade. The kid thought he'd died and gone to heaven!

    Please, for the sake of all that is Holy, get him a 38B Elkhart [with an Al Cass Milford mouthpiece for the win].

    PLEASE.

    It's shiny, it screams, and it costs a fraction of the price of a Vincent Bach gasoline-powered leaf blower:

    PS: A gorgeous gold-plated 1928 2B just went for $1,125.00:

    I wonder how the wide wrap would go over today among young players.


    Back then . . .

    Conn Elkhart team + Alfred Stephen Cascianelli = two greatest brasswind geniuses of the 20th Century.

    Accept nothing less.
