King Horn

cornet question. for a beginner...King 603 or Bach 300? Thanks!?

my son's band director has the King as first choice and the Bach as second. a few people i know who play brass have Bachs and swear by them, i don't know much about Kings. any help or advice from would be great.

It is a matter of personally preference when comparing instruments from these reputable manufacturers. Bach and King both make excellent horns. I do agree with a previous answer that the director may have a certain sound in mind that would call for a larger or smaller bore. And, it does seem that Bach holds value longer, and that may be important if you are concerned your son may not stick with band for long and you need to sell the horn. But, if this is not a concern, consider Bach and King on the same playing field and go with your gut.

By the way, there are MANY "instrument manufacturers" out there that do NOT compare to Bach and King horns. Therefore, I recommend avoiding eBay unless you are experienced with musical instruments. It is very easy to be "duped" into thinking you have purchased a quality horn when in fact, it barely amounts to a toy.
