Mienl Weston are good buys...but be choosey. My friend bought a piston valve CC last year and the valves are loud as heck. Check out Miraphone CC's. They offer a lot of good buys. VMI has some nice stuff too.
Are you planning on purchasing a BBb, CC, Eb, or F? There are a lot of variables when shopping for a horn. Find one that you love, no matter how it looks. The best CC horn I've played on is a 30 year old Cerveny. You need to figure what kind of playing you'll be doing and how much of each. Band? Orchestra? Solo? Chamber? Good luck!
