Re: Miraphone Lookalike?
I don't know that anyone makes a clone of the 186 in BBb. The Mack 410 is a clone of the 186 CC and is a good horn. I own one and am very happy with it. Mack does have a very nice playing BBb that is a Hirsbrunner copy, the Mack 210. One of my students has one, and I am very impressed with the sound of it. The 210 has a similar bore (.775) to the 186 (.772), and the bell is the same diameter. You might contact Jeff Henry of The Bandwagon in Ft. Worth, as he has a line of clones that he engineered himself under the brand name Orion. I bet he could get you something pretty close at a good price.
