Other Details: List price for this horn is $8740; I am selling for $5250 including an MB1 flight case. You will not find a better descant in this price range! I have performed Schumann Konzerstück, Romeau Les Boreades, Bach Cantatas, Stravinsky Dumbarton Oaks and many other pieces on this instrument and it has never let me down. This horn will be in Houston beginning December 2019 for trials. Please contact me if you're interested.

Custom descant horn features light, responsive action. Key of Bb/F alto, .472" bore, 12-1/8" yellow brass bell with medium bell throat, gold brass mouthpipe, 4 solid rotary valves, 5th rotary A/plus stop valve eliminates the need to transpose during stopped passages and puts horn into key of A, nickel silver inner and outer slides, unlacquered brass enhances natural sonic characteristics, engraved valve caps, handmade construction.

I recently had the valves lapped by Mark Atkinson for better action. Compression is near perfect.
Extras: MB-1 Marcus Bonna flight case, extra tuning bit.
