I looked at several horns in the category you're thinking of at Ft. Myer this year and the ones that stood out to me were the MW2000 which is a hand-made version of the 2155 - and I remember reading that Matt could find you a 2155 that played like a 2000 - the 2145 Dillon had in silver was very nice too, and Brasswind had an excellent Rudy 4/4 that's right in that size range, and priced below the MW's, I think and they're ALL hand-made. Also, Lee Stofer in Atlanta will treat you right on a Rudy and since he apprenticed in their shop, can do whatever is needed with them. He took my old 3/4 and in a single day, made it play like a new horn!
