Updated Listing Paxman 21M Bb/F double horn - yellow brass; detachable medium sized bell; lacquered; 5 valves; air freight case; extras

This particular Paxman 21M is a good example of a Paxman professional horn with superb tone that is difficult to surpass. I have personally tried many different horns over the years, but found none that equal or surpass this horn in tonal qualities. It has been regularly played on a daily basis and looked after its entire life by the same owner. The horn is in very good condition (there is a small amount of lacquer deterioration e.g. inside bell, finger keys, and Bb tuning slide, as can be seen in the photographs). It has recently been serviced (all valves re-honed, cleaned of Verdigris and debris; rubber valve stops renewed on all 5-valves; adjustable Pinky Hook installed). A number of extras are included (Paxman 4B mouthpiece; Paxman Oils and Slide Grease; leather hand guard; Paxman 'The Horn Care and Maintenance' booklet). The horn is housed in a Paxman air freight light case.

The thumb valve is in standard format (key of F) when not pressed, and non-standard format (key of Bb) when pressed. The thumb lever is easily reversible to stand in either F or Bb when not pressed. The 1st. valve from the mouth piece end (photo 1) is a stopping valve which is handy for stopped notes because they do not require any transposition when using this valve. Not only can the horn be tuned with the main (Bb, F) and F tuning slides, but there is also a Bb tuning slide, which comes in handy for fine tuning the instrument. This feature gives independent tuning slides for both sides of the horn. It is recommended that the entire horn be tuned using e.g. an iPhone App like Cleartune, which can be used to assess the tuning of each individual note. The Paxman 21M has the thumb valve in the Geyer/Knopf wrap style, with the valve at the end of the valve train, furthest away from the mouthpiece. It is a completely original, unique design built around the Merewether system which allows the air to flow through the valve section in the same direction on both the F and Bb sides of the instrument. This minimises airflow disruption from the turning rotor and enables characteristic smooth slurring and legato playing on both F and Bb horns, and when changing between them. SPECIFICATIONS

"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.
