    Although it will belong to the band...
    Assuming I get any say in the matter and taking into account the limited budget, what should we get?
    Don't actually know what the budget will be but not more than £500 at the very limit.

    I've got a Yamaha Maestro Tenor Horn: Yamaha Maestro 602 Tenor Horn, Lacquer slightly worn and case a bit shabby, but plays great!. You can see pictures here: http://www.bentubb.com/instruments.htm , am looking for £500?

    I'd recommend you try to get hold of a 2nd hand sovereign. I believe they're the "rolls royce" of tenor horns.

    My first horn was a Maestro but must admit now play a Sovereign and agree it's the best.

    Didn't you get advised to get an older style one and do it up Ben?

    You can get good new ones - honest.
    Just be very fussy and demand to try a few.

    pm shawneuph and ask him about his new range of horns. I know that he has had several instruments (one of whic I believe to be the round stamp sovereign) cloned and produced. I have tried some of them and they are very very good, not sure if the horn is ready yet though. Awesome prices as well!!!

    2nd hand Sov, preferably an old 'un in good nick. Be ready to a) pull the main slide 'til it's ready to drop, and b) learn some new (alternative) fingerings - but you'll sound like a star once you've got used to the beast.... :)
