You might also consider the Besson 765. It has a nice sound (it has the same bore as the Sovereign models) and it costs $1850 in silver. I have a lacquer version of this horn which has a number of finish problems (which I've described in the past). The silver horns seem to hold up a bit better (at least the few that I've seen). It's a bit more expensive than the 321S, but you will have a horn with a bass trombone receiver, a side-action fourth valve, and a richer sound (IMO). However, if I had to do it all over again, I would splurge for the Willson non-compensating euph.
