"Handmade horn This is a rare opportunity to experience a handmade horn by master horn maker Hans Smit in Amsterdam. He made my horn 5 years ago and when I advertised one recently which he made for a friend there were many enquiries about wanting a horn which was similar to an Alexander 101. So he has made one specially. Hans makes horns individually to the player, their size, stance, preference for sound etc. Mine is small and light weight. This is a full size double horn. Its high register plays easily. It comes in a specially designed case which can be carried as a backpack. You are welcome to try it. It is located in the Melbourne CBD. I hope you will enjoy it as much as I do mine. $8,750 Contact Leonie or Marnie 0409 789 580. " [2 October 2017]

1925 Vintage Kruspe F Descant with unique Bb Loop.
I had this horn fully rebuilt by Brett Gustafson -- South Australia -- in 2016
Wonderful Provenance on this Kruspe and it plays superbly,
Comes with 2 different " Stiks " ( 5" long lead pipes ) in Nickel Silver & Yellow Brass. Both " Stiks " have their advantages.
The Bb Loop is for the open Bb Harmonics and those missing pedal notes. It is very practical.
Note---- This is not to be regarded as a F & Bb Deskant, the Bb trigger is used only as above. It was installed by Thomas Newell ( Boston Symphony )
Anyone interested in a Deskant needs to try this horn, one of a kind.
All receipts and Provenance from Halstead Music will be supplied to buyer. A brief list of Provenance as follows --
1--- Tibor Schik -- Fritz Reiner -- Phillip Farkas ( more on this to the buyer. )
2--- Thomas Newell --- 3rd Horn Boston Symphony, his name is under a valve cap.
3--- Lowell Greer ---Owned this horn & recorded Brandenburg 1 & Konzertstuk on it.
4 -- Neil Mantle -- Director Scottish Sinfonia & collector of Vintage Kruspe Horns.
I purchased the horn from Halstead Music and in the intervening years had it rebuilt at significant cost.

This 1925 Kruspe is in " As New Condition " mechanically. Plays as new.
If interested, contact me as below. No trial period unless substantial deposit left.
Firm on price, I'm taking a " Bath " at this price, nowhere near what has been spent.
I'm selling as I need to reduce my collection & I have a Triple which I hardly ever use as it is.

-------------- $3800 --------

Triple Horns

Alexander 301 Full Triple Gold Brass. Excellent condition. MB-5 Black Leather case included. $16,000 neg. Enquiries to jasenm@australianballet.com.au (Horn is in Melbourne) [23 June 2017]

Alexander Triple Horn Model 307 No.4439 was bought from Alexanders in 1989 and has been played in a number of amateur orchestras since. The owner is now too old to play it. The lacquer is rather worn in places but it has only very few very small dents The mechanics are in very good condition. It was recently serviced and has hardly been played since It sits in B flat with thumb levers for F and High F and this cannot be changed. The horn comes with a detachable stopping valve on the Bflat side with an extra thumb lever and a detachable extension slide on the F side. The bell is detachable and the whole comes in a cabin case that is in very good condition I have priced it at $8000 but I am willing to consider any offer. I just want to see it go to a good home. The horn is in Melbourne and I can be contacted at hhuggins1@bigpond.com [5 May 2019]
