OP, congrats on the horn! I have a friend who found a MkVII tenor in good shape for about $2400 from a shop a while back. He tried a bunch of horns in his budget and just really connected with that one. It's a solid horn with a good tone. It's got a cleaner and maybe darker tone than my MkVI, which has a fuzzier, buzzier kind of tendency that I like, but my friend prefers his VII and I can see why.

Those horns got a bad rap, but I think they are as good as any of the great vintage horns, though I've admittedly only played a few and none for very long. The VII's main crime was being different to a VI when that was all anybody wanted, but they have their own thing going, IMO.
