I had a similar experience with a late 1970s 4b earlier this year. All
the more surprising as I had been looking at Conn 88Hs, having loved my
8H, and was convinced Conn 88H was what I would buy.
Tried the 4b in a rehearsal, liked it within minutes, took it home and
kept it. Wouldn't swap now. I think it was the clarity, ease of
response and ability to cut through as needed that swung it for me.

I don't think it was any particular Eastlake magic, as much as *that*
horn has some magic. Maybe there was extra rat hair in the brass
