I played a Marzan Piston CC for years, and in a fit of stupidity sold it. It was a great horn!!!! I believe that Bohm-Meinl bought the design(or made the original as I think it was a "stamp" horn) as I saw one that looked(but played nothing like)mine. They had a variable tuning system(main tuning slide operated by the left hand) and great valves. Fred Marzan designed and sold the horns. I would buy a piston BBb sight unseen!!!! If you get a chance to buy one, GET IT. Two of my favorite players, James Jenkins of Jacksonville and Kevin Ladd, formerly of the Syracuse Symphony play them!!!!!! Cheers.
