The Holton 6/4 CC was the model for the 2165. Gerhard Meinl copied Don Little's Holton while it was being overhauled, and made a few minor changes to the copy. Then Warren came into the picture and made some drastic changes: changed it from a 5-bow instrument into a 3-bow instrument, starting tinkering with bell weight, big pistons, etc.
