    I'm also inclined to agree with Dave.

    From a publisher's perspective the Fb would be the obvious choice. Printing one flat for the F is much simpler (and cost effective) than printing ALL the...

    And for the chromatic runs, it's typical for descending lines to use flats and ascending ones to use sharps. That's just the "rule of music" there, and at looks cleaner most of the time. Imagine if...

    Since this has been revived, I have a weird question.

    I tried a King 2280 years ago and even though it's marked as a "large shank" receiver, none of my mouthpieces seemed to fit correctly. It...

    The baritone solo in Schoenberg's Theme and Variations was probably the most difficult I ever had to perform. Mostly because of the open voiced F#minor triad at the end (bass clef- F# about the staff...

    Closely looking at the bell in the second picture, you can see some outlines of where I think the logo is (or once was). Looks like it's a burst shape of some nature, but doesn't match the Buescher...

    High Range and the Horn

    I've played a Willson 2950 for almost 15 years now, and I've never felt like it has held me back. I've always maintained an attitude of 'It's the player not the horn', and I still abide by that near...

    I don't have my SM5 anymore to verify, but if I remember correctly my SM4U sat further in my Willson than the other DW mouthpieces did. Not loose per say, but just more of the shank into the receiver.

    Good luck! I got to try a 274 earlier in the year, and it should certainly be a good horn. Enjoy your New Horn Day when it arrives!

    I believe the MAP price was about 1550 for the lacquer, probably more for silver.
