Based on some exceptional VI tenors I've played I would look in the 86-110,000-ish range.
I have an 87k alto with the same wonderful color to it. Beautiful horn.jimmitch said:I just love my 82xxx tenor wouldn't trade it for the world.
Have you also had the body to bow soldered on your 54? It made a tangible difference on my 36. When it came back from that trip to Randy Jones, it really was a different horn - and it was no slouch to start.Randall said:Since then, I landed a silver closet VI in the 184,xxx range and had it overhauled and had the body to bow soldered. I have to say that, if memory serves me correctly, this VI is head and shoulders above my old one. It has a resonance or ring to it that my 54 comes close to, but doesn't match exactly.
How about the world plus $100?jimmitch said:I just love my 82xxx tenor wouldn't trade it for the world.
Hey Hurl, I just noticed that you modified this post with the addition of the words "Money is no object in this exercise. Assume you have all the funds you need to purchase the horn of your choice." after you started the pole. Trickey............:!: I wonder what the pole would say if the price of the 36 and the Mark VI had to be the same?Hurling Frootmig said:While it is difficult to decide on a particular style of VI so I will leave that to your discretion for the poll. Choose the era you like the best and tell me which horn you would prefer.
Money is no object in this exercise. Assume you have all the funds you need to purchase the horn of your choice.
