Re: beginner should not get a pro level horn? Why?

Buy the 3b, very versatile horn and hold their resale value if you change your mind...... Contact DJ Kennedy he has many 3b's of different vintages

Also you do not say if you have a teacher? If you don't then get one will help you get the best start

Re: Besson 35

The 35 is a student model, almost indestructible as Stewbones said you can march through a wall without fear of damage and .487 small bore

The 10-10 etc where the pro line (to use modern parlance) but as with all horns it's how it plays, so we await your review with interest

Re: King 3B and alternatives

I would never buy a 3B for 1000$. For this price, you get very beaten up horns. But if you buy from a friend, or someone you trust, it could be OK. Also I think a 3BF is better, if he plays 3rd chair in a big band or something like that, but they are more expensive. Very sweeping statement and not ...
