If it is a new horn, it is the same as the Buescher BU-? that is imported from Asia. There are better choices. I compare these to the midline Taiwan horns. Better than the Maxtone/Wexler types form ROC but not as good as those from Japan. Find a used Vito for $600 or so or get a similar (to the Conn) model for under $300. Most of us that sell horns have these but not with the high price of "Conn" on them. Now if you find a real vintage Conn, you will really have something.
