I like the Getzen for the money. Both are good instruments, but the
Getzen seems to be a better value.
Of course, as mentioned a good used name brand horn is also an
option. Ferguson (hornguys.com) has a used 62H (the new edition) for
$1750. I have a former student that has a newer 62H like that, and
it is a good horn.
