No, I am not serious. I was just pulling Santos leg because I know how much he hates Mirafones, especially that model. I myself once owned a silver plated Conn Monster EEb, made around the teens or twenties. I sold it ten years ago to a fellow from Canada who absolutely fell in love with it the moment he saw it. He soon added a fourth valve and was going to use it for orchestral playing. The tone was great, but the low register was very stuffy, but that may have been because the valves were worn. I also had the main slide cut a little to bring it up to pitch. If I remember correctly, the mouthpiece receiver was around the standard size.
