Greetings All:
Was hanging out at Kevin Powers Master Brass Repair shop (Monroe Michigan), when I spied a horn I didn't recognize, turned out to be a DB-50 Bram Smith. It looked brand new despite it's 45 year age..turns out Kevin rebuilt it. It was an awsome player with a big sound and a high range that locked in like no bodies business.

Anyone have more data on this horn?

Thanks!
