I use since 1992, first as student, then semi-pro and amateur now. I tried many horns at that time Paxman 20L (excellent also, I had one for 10 months, but the position of left hand gives me cramps), Holton (also very good), Conn. (really very large shank) and a yamaha too.
I love aesthetics, plus it's an anniversary model with the large ring flag, I'm comfortable with the physical.
Least half the high B flat (in C) does not always go well.
Today, with the same budget, I would do this choice. But if I had (much) more money I think I will buy a Schmid. I was amazed by a F / Bb / Eb acute tried Musicora years ago.
