    $5000 will get you a nice selection of a used horn, including a used willson or yamaha. I'd personally stay away from besson, they went through a period where quality control was really low, and you...

    The packer 274 is better than the 374 (not just my opinion) and it's about the same price as the wessex.

    I have both the king (that I converted to a 5 valve instrument) and the packer 274. Here's my thoughts

    it's a good horn. as an added bonus...

    I play a non compensating horn most of the time because I'd rather have 4 valves in a row than use my left hand. I added a 5th valve to my King 2280. Yes, it's operated with my left thumb, but...
