Hello Again,
Thanks to all of you who took the time to give me some advice.. I've taken all into consideration... I've asked my mom (yes she'll be helping me with finances) i work at hastings and ill proably be making my payments but i cant get a loan from the bank or any of that.. she says the price range is in and around 7,000 dollars.. a lil more than i thought she'd say but im not complaining.. The Mirafone 188's the best price i could get was 6500 with a case and gig bag... From Brook Mays and the guy at dillon will try to match all these prices and beat them by 100. The pt-4 as you all know only available at custom.. or thats the only place i've found them was 6800 and the conn 56j, the cheapest i could find them was at around 6800 from Tuba Exchange.. All in silver except the Mirafone which is in laquer.. Are these decent prices do you konw where i can get a better one.. or any dealers out there.. also is there a better horn i have over looked once again.. thank you for your time..
