 CSVR...but with all the goodies...
Author: ClarinetRobt

I'm kicking the idea around about changing my Bb. I currently have a Buffet Prestige (RC?) that's about 15 years old. It's a terrific horn and doesn't suffer from typical Buffet ailments. John Butler has just completed a beautiful overhaul.
I'd love to switch to a CSVR (I love my A horn), but I feel like it's a downgrade to my Prestige. Not because the Buffet is a superior horn, but because the Prestige offers silver plating and the auxiliary, left Eb key. (My acidic hands eats nickel and silver has proven to be tougher finish. And well, the left Eb is just a nice thing and has made my life easier several times.)

Of course Yamaha offers horns with these attributes. But which ones are closest to the CSVR? I haven't noticed a lot of chatter about higher end Yamahas on the Bboard. Truthfully, I haven't played most of Yamaha's offerings. Please suggest options. Are those as consistent as the CSRV? Pro/cons other models vs CSVR?

I want to be clear, I don't need a new horn, but would like to have a matching set. Just toying with my possibilities. I feel confident I could sell my Prestige and all but fund a new Yamaha.
