Description

The original owner played on this horn through high school, university and during the first years of his tenure in a professional orchestra prior to transitioning to a Rauch horn. Sadly, the person's perspiration is so caustic that it ate through the left hand hand guard, right above the bell tail ferrel and the bell. Patches are very distinctive and do not impact this horn's playability.
Pros
  1. Fred Williams beautifully restored this horn with his signature brushed matte finish and replaced the patch on the left hand guard.
  2. I replaced the stock leadpipe with a Patterson pipe w/ Amado water key roughly two years ago. Jim Patterson installed the pipe himself and optimized the bracing locations for maximum resonance
  3. In spite of its age, the valves are still tight and show no leakage whatsoever.
  4. With the Holton bell tail this horn is a projection monster. The hall-filling sound is quite impressive
  5. First valve F slide replaced
Cons
  1. The original owner converted the bell with a Paxman ring, so the options for trying new bell flares is quite limited.
  2. The case is an ancient Paxman, but it fits perfectly in overhead storage on all commercial aircraft. Believe me when I disclose the the case is ancient, but still 90% intact. All latches function normally.
I've included both before and after pix for your viewing pleasure to witness Fred Williams' impressive restoration work.
