The instruments that you mentioned are all good brands. Just for your info, Mirafone does make piston valved horns. If you want the most bang for your buck the Mirafone S186 5u is the best thing going. the S is for student but don't let that fool you. The only difference between the Student horn and the pro horn is that the slides on the pro horn are nickelsilver and the student ones are brass. They play the same! You can get this horn at Brass Wind for around $4600. Don't quote me on the price, but I think I'm close. Check it out you'll be glad you did.
Good luck AL
