    Occasionally they show up here used:

    DG
    1966 Besson 181 highly modified New Standard
    1918 Hawkes & Son euph 3&1 original
    1915 York Bb tenorhorn original

  3. Also keep an eye on sites like Baltimore Brass and Dillon Music. Both usually have a stock of used/demo horns that gets updated fairly frequently.

    I don’t know if this is a M5050, but it showed up on a search:

    At first I thought it was an M5050 but then I looked at mine and the labeling is different. I suspect this might be a Miraphone 5000 but not sure. See image below of my M5050.

  7. At that price it is rather tempting. Ive played the M5050 but never this model. I notice the no trigger, no gold accents and smaller bell. Seems the bore size is the same but hard to tell much else.
    Worth it at this price vs heart set on M5050??

    I looked at images of new M5000, and M5050 (and also the other lower tier models). They all have the model number stamped in front of the serial number. If that is a newer process, then maybe it is an older horn, and might not have the other fancy stuff too. It still doesn’t lock down a model for this one though. Hehe. Would the serial number itself be enough to determine the model?

    I don’t know where to find a list of Miraphone serial numbers to model numbers - sorry. Demondrae Thurman helped develope the M5050. Don’t know all of the changes he suggested, but he did tell me that he was the one who suggested Miraphone vent all four valves. That’s a good feature. He may have also suggested the 12.2” bell but not sure.
