    You need to try a bunch of horns and see what you like best. Everyone has their own preference. I play on a Yamaha 875-EX. The best thing to do would be to would be to get a bunch of horns to try out (a few Selmers a few Yamahas and whatever else you might be interested in) and then play test them blindfolded. This way you won't know which horn you're playing and you can pick what feels best. Good luck!

      Thanks. I've never considered doing it blindfolded before.

        I dont see how that'll make a difference, but whatever works, the cannonballs are pretty good horns for the price especially if you dont wanna spend 4 or 5 thousand

          You don't have to spend four or five thousand to get a horn that is better than a cannonball.

        Blindfolded, dark room , hey , try playing with your eyes closed. It's in the feel.
