Hi guys My parents bought me a nice looking Sov when i was younger and its done me really well, however now I am at the Conservatoire and much more mature as a musician I have started to realise that mine is one of the dreaded 'bad batch' with bad intonation and to say the least its as flat as a pancake! I am looking for a nice instrument to take me through uni and into my playing career. I would like to find a Eb B & H Imperial w/ a 19inch bell, these were made sort of as the transition into the modern Sovereign and for me play absolutely brilliantly! Other than that a nice early sovereign would be what im looking for B&H (ie. round stamp) or Besson. On a very long shot I have heard that Willson made some very nice 3+1 compensation Eb's along time ago, quite similar to sovereigns. Ino its abit of a mamouth post but I would be very grateful if anyone could give me a hand, point me in the right direction or had any information that could help me. Ps. I think I have around £2,500 to spend, pending the sales of my bass trombones.
