    Find the one you like best and buy it! What kind of music do you play? What sound are you looking for? Unless you play classical music, avoid the Mark VII. Mark VI's cost an arm and a leg, and although they're nice horns, there are other great vintage horns that play very well and sound even better in my opinion. Just check out a few horns and pick the one you like best.

    Don't buy any Mark VI with a high F# key. They don't play right. No matter what horn you choose, have a technician look at it first. Best of luck to you :)
