This is a really good point- any pro horn is better than most of our abilities to play them so there's little point going crazy trying to choose between several really great instruments. Of course, if we didn't spend all this time "splitting hairs" we wouldn't have much to post about.Thanks hgiles, soybean, et al. I guess when you get up to a certain level of horn they're all "good". Too often we all try so hard not to make a bad decision, or worry about making the "best" decision, that we get things out of perspective. Make a good decision, based on solid information, and then, just play!
