Differences? The PT-4 and the Mirafone are made overseas. The Conn is American made. The Mirafone is rotary valved. The Conn and the PT are both piston. I think, but am not sure, that the bell on the mirafone has a smaller diameter than the other two. I think the Conn has the best choices in terms of finish (laquer, satin laquer, silver, satin silver) I think a satin laquer horn would just be cool. The thing with all three of these is that the have alot in common (size, price, other features) and to make a good decision you will have to play them and pick the one that fits you the best.
