Asking Price $1500.00. Call or email to discuss.  Instrument in good condition.  Serial # 141416

Older good quality British-made instrument.  Former military horn.  Original silver-plated finish - quite tarnished and some wear spots.  No major dents in tubing or bell flare - only one large flat spot on bell rim and it has small typical dents from not having a case.  No major structural repairs - just some re-soldering of braces & lyre box.  That said, it has a couple reinforcement patches on the 3rd branch where the player's hand rests.  Valves are in near-perfect condition; rare for these older horns, and newer upgraded nylon guides.  Tuning slides all free & smooth.  No case, mouthpiece or accessories.  Although ugly and dirty, horn is playable as is.  For more information please contact our sales office.

NOTE:  This instrument has a Euro-shank receiver - will not work properly with US/Standard shank mouthpieces.   Most of these older British-made horns have had receivers changed over by repair shops.
