I'm new to this forum, and this may have been addressed earlier, but I haven't been successful in discovering it.
I'm looking for a summary, I suppose, of horns that are compact under the fingers. For instance, a mark VI rather than a keilwerth. I'm planning on purchasing a vintage horn and repairing it, and I will probably be checking eBay. I live in a small place where I cannot check different horns out myself. So any thoughts on horns that are characteristically "compact"?
