This just popped up on my Facebook feed and I would have sworn this was a Getzen 390 with lever water keys, but the second image is a totally different instrument. Playing fast and loose with the photographs. They say imitation is the highest form of flattery...

What do you think?

Yeah thats a completly different horn lol. someone at WWBW should check that out because that pretty sketchy to me. 200 bucks for what looks like your standard Mendini horn seems like a stretch too in my humble opinion.

I do love the stuck or grossly misaligned first valve on the Getzen looking horn..

Yet another reason to avoid WWBW, they don’t seem to even care anymore about their formerly good reputation.

When I was in the business Lauren was a stencil name used by Musicorp, wholesalers to the music retail industry.

I don’t kn9w what that is, but it isn’t a Getzen. The first pic looks close, but the receiver and bracing is all wrong. Not the best copy I’ve seen, but not 5he worst either.
