  1. Sticky: FS: Willson 4-Valve Compensating Euph - Maybe 2900 - Rough and Might Go Cheap

    This horn has been around the block and I think it's pretty old. Seller says he contacted the company with the serial number, but the horn predates their cataloging. Starting bid is $2,000 and there...

  7. Sticky: FS: 1974 Besson Sovereign 968 - Satin Silver

    This horn looks very good and comes with a case. It looks like a New Standard to me, but I know there was a lot of similarity between the two. I see a few small dents in the bottom bow and not a lot...

    Could be, but I'm not sure. Also, the E2 is not really the right horn to compare for a huge sound. I has thick metal, but the soldered bell rim and different bracing are intended to give it a more...

    I weighed mine tonight and it came in a whisker under 10 pounds. That is for .60 metal, which we assume is thinner than the HB, but with a sterling silver bell, which is somewhat heavy. I can say...
