I'm wondering if anyone can speak on the 16M and compare it to a Buescher Elkhart 30A. I own both horns and feel that the 16M build quality and feel may be a bit better, but the Buescher has a bigger (and to my ears, dirtier) sound. I think that it's reasonable to consider both tenors good intermediate horns.
I'm having a hard time deciding which horn I like better.....Thanks in advance!

A late 50s 16M is a good one. Soundwise the same as a 6M from the late 50s, just different keywork and engraving.
A 16M is a tenor, and certainly isn't going to sound like a 6M (which is an alto) unless something is very, very wrong. :rolleyes:

The 10M is of course the professional model tenor vs. the student 16M Director.
