I'm going into college for music, and I have to pay for it all. I am looking to buy a new professional/step up concert horn that won't break the bank. I recently played a Walter Nirschl 88 H tenor trombone with an axial valve f-attachment. It felt great, sounded great, and according to reviews on the internet it is still a professional horn. Apparently Walter Nirschl is on the rise. I'm just wary because of the 1400 price tag. So can anyone tell me more about Walter Nirschl instruments? Thank you so much

As far as I know Nirschl is an instrument company in germany. I believe they're more into tubas.
This 'W.Nirschl' brand is not made by them, I believe they're built in China or India. By looking at the model name I guess it's based on the Conn 88.
In my opinion, you would be best to find a used professional horn like a Bach 42 or Conn 88 which will be better quality for the same price. Just try as many as you can get your hands on for as long as you can for each one and try to find one that plays, sounds and suits you well.
