to John Tarabocchia for
providing me vintage ads and informing me of this model.
have had two other professionals,
whose main horns were Mark VI's
and had never played a Buffet,
play my horn. Both said that my horn was "comparable"
to their horns that cost thousands more. When I finally
got my hands on several Mark VI's, I decided that they were right.
This is kinda kewl because this model Buffet is supposed to compete
with the Selmer Super Balanced
Action horns -- the VI was introduced in 1954.
As mentioned previously, it seems Buffet "restarted" their serial number charts with these horns and these seem to be the first horns that follow the "standard" Buffet serial number chart.
