I've got a horn that I just don't use that a local shop wants. Very popular around here, and I'll get about 2500 for it. I could probably wait 6 months and sell for 3k, but I'd do with the 2500. Anyways, I have a classic orchestral instrument that I do play, Kruspe wrap, but I'd really like a more flexible chamber instrument, preferred Geyer wrap. Any ideas?

When I play WWQ's I often use an old vintage Conn 6D. I find it very flexible and blends well with the woodwind players. If you want a Geyer wrap there is the Conn 10D. You also might think about going to a single Bb horn. Bb horns are very light and responsive - of course finding a good one might exceed your budget. And you should also be bale to find a used Yamaha horn around your price range. Yamaha's tend to have a very even scale and might be exactly what you are looking for.

John,
Thanks for the response. I was also thinking about a Schmidt I've run across. Nicely built, a very Chicago sound, but so responsive, of a smaller bore, and warm even on the pp it is a possibility.

A Schmidt for $2500? That would be amazing. I love the older schmidts, in some ways the older Conn 6D is similar to the older Schmidts. Some one in Los Angeles used to do a conversion of the 6D's to make them even more like the Schmidts and I know of several players who back in the 70's had that conversion donel and they loved those horns.

Glad to hear that the Schmidt is appreciated by someone. I'm going to have to move my second horn to raise most of the money for the next horn. We'll see what happens
