This may be a little of topic, but I wonder (after reading ALL of the posts concerning yours); since BBb horns are looked down upon, why are there SO many CC's being sold privately? I can't imagine there being a great rush to buy newer CC's or even F's (6 valves!?). BBb's have served well in the US (at all levels) for many decades? As to the allusions to a crisper sound on the CC's - hogwash! As was stated by several of our friends hereing; these is virtually no difference. So what's going on with the rush to sell all these CC's?
