Conn 8D double French horn Gold brass

This instrument was bought from new by it’s current owner, in the mid 80’s.

It has been played regularly and although it appears to have 3 tone tube colours, it is in fact a nickel silver corpus with gold brass bell, which has been sprayed over with a yellow tint lacquer.

Despite it’s age, this horn is in very good condition; valve compression is also very good, as the owner was meticulous in looking after their instrument. They are now down sizing their collection, hence the sale

As standard, the instrument has been chemically cleaned and had full Artisan Horns valve service completed.

Paxman model 23 Europa double French horn Gold brass

This instrument was built and supplied by Paxman Musical Instruments Ltd. directly for it’s current owner in 2004.

The Europa bell was designed by Bob Paxman in the mid 1990’s and was designed as a ‘medium / large’ bore, to complement the existing Paxman range of bells.

This instrument has a very free blowing feel across it’s range. Model 23 was a success, but on some of the instruments built, tuning could be an issue. Luckily for this particular instrument, those issues are not evident!

The horn is in good condition; chemically cleaned and full Artisan Horns valve service completed.
