Was the Blue Label ever really "a top shelf pro horn"?

They were OK I suppose, better than a Weltklang, some were probably really good, but overall as a whole I never got the impression we are talking top table in the same way as the late model B&S horns here.

I never played one so I wouldn't be able to tell. Looks like it was posted about 2 months ago but I haven't followed Craigslist much lately.

I’ve owned two silver plated Blue Label tenors and a slew of B&S 2001 and Medusa era horns. Loved them all and I’d define the Blue Labels as great horns that are a little more ballsy but unrefined. Incredibly lush subtones on the Blue Labels, with all the other B&S horns I’ve owned taking a close second. I sold both my Blue Labels because the left hand ergos weren’t great for me, specifically my thumb would rub on a post/screw head next to the left thumbrest.
