Hi all,

I just bought this horn on Ebay for $42 on a whim. I'm thinking it might be a Rampone & Cazzani stencil. I was looking for a project horn cheap-cheap to practice repadding and/or tweaking and the price was right. The more I look at it the more I'm thinking it's an R&C. According to the seller, it's engraved "US Bandmaster" serial# 00566. Any thoughts, comments? Good, bad, ugly? Worth $42?

Here's the link:

Hey, Milandro, you out there?...

Hmm, or maybe a Malerne...Seems to me, though, I saw an R&C with the same bell-brace...Did Malerne stencil for R&C or vice-versa? And who the heck is US Bandmaster!?

By coincidence, I was looking up info on a "Blue Label" B&S horn and came across the following thread.

"Bandmaster" - Weltklang stencil (possibly Weltklang Solist)

If that's the case, given the comments from this player, looks like you could have an interesting horn.
