I would like to find out what you guys and girls play, hear some pros and cons of your horns and tell me what you think would be a good, all-around instrument for a junior in high school to play in marching band, jazz band, concert band, quintet, etc. Do you know any sellers who could give me a good price on a new horn or cost to mint horn. I would be most thankful for your advise everyone. I will take every post into consideration while I'm sorting through the horns I will be testing. Hopefully I will be going to a fw warehouse dealers and the like. Are there any things to look for that might be a bad sign that the horn isn't the best choice. And are there any examples that you could give me that would tell me if I'm getting a bargin on a horn. Do you have a check list you go by when you purchase a new horn? If so what is it? Thanks again everyone. I look forward to your suggestions.
