Refer to the previous post and it's allusion to automobiles.
One CAN find medium to high end used horns for the price of new low end ones. Metal thickness is nothing you can alter. Adding braces to shore up a horn will only deaden it.
After playing several Amatis I would NEVER refer anyone to those horns. You can dress up a pig, but it's still a pig!!
No one is dogging Cerveny, just the Amati. Bad horn. Ever played an Amati you liked?
