I ran across a horn at an estate sale that played decently and got it. However, I can't find any information on its history or brand. It's engraved "Topper" and "Made in U.S.A." on the back of the bell. As far as I can tell, it appears to be an American-style euphonium similar to some Conns and Kings (3 front action pistons with a front facing bell). I measure the bore ID at the valves to be about 0.55". Does anyone know about this brand or its horns?
