 Question about the CSVR
Author: Musikat 
Date:   2017-11-18 03:48

I have been reading about these horns on this board for quite a while and it seems like they get a lot of positive reviews here and elsewhere. Long story short, I am planning on having my R13 overhauled and possibly silver plated (pending confirmation that my hand rash I just connected to a possible nickel allergy is in fact from that), but first, I am having the tech assess it to make sure it is a good enough R13 to justify putting over $1,000 into it by the time you factor in the plating. I have done well with it, but also haven't had the opportunity to try a lot of other professional level horns for comparison.

In the event that this horn I picked out at age 14 with limited knowledge isn't one of the good ones, my next thought is to get a used CSVR, of which there are a few online (ranging from $1,700-$2400, so not too bad). One thing I keep seeing here is how consistent they are from horn to horn. If I order it from a reputable or well-rated source, would I be OK to order it through the online site? I would never do that with an R13, but my question is am I safe(r) to do that with this horn?
