I've got some horns which aren't esthetically perfect at the same time they play perfectly. I'm considering reducing my collection and know of an excellent overhauler who plates and lacquers horns.
So I see that there are people who are very drawn to reputable horns which were overhauled to look pretty but out of spec. Then there are those like me who appreciate original horns.
So the questions:
A-Do you prefer horns overhauled close to spec?
B-Do you prefer the pretty overhauled horns? (silver and gold, etched etc)
C-Why mess with a good thing?
