I posted a while back asking about the Cerveny 641 Eb. The post is off the bbs so I couldn't see if you replied to my question about the playing quality of this horn. I play only in a brass quintet primarily for fun and the occasional Xmas/Easter gigs. I'm using an old beat-up Mirafone 184-4U that was rescued from an intermediate school. I've been tossing around the idea of getting a new horn, and the Cerveny 641 Eb looks like it might be a pretty good value, and it appears to have similar dimensions to my 184 (bore,bell size) just keyed Eb. Since you own one, I'm assuming you must have found something you like about the horn to spend your money on it. Could you tell me your thoughts about this horn? Is yours the same horn that WWandBW have listed for $2295? Did you have to try several of these horns to find one that you liked?
Thanks for your time
