Updated Listing Paxman 21M Bb/F double horn- yellow brass; detachable medium sized bell; lacquered; 5 valves; air freight case; extras
"This 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. 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 and unique design that is 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. This particular Paxman 21M 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. on inside bell, finger keys, Bb tuning slide as can be seen in the photographs) It has recently been serviced (all valves re-honed; rubber end stops on all 5-valves renewed; adjustable Pinky Hook installed). 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 tune each individual note. A number of extras are included (Paxman 3D 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.

New Listing. "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]

New Condition Yamaha YHR-668 NDII Professional level Full Double French horn. The horn has a flat new Yamaha Case and a Protec Screw Bell IPAC Deluxe Case for easy plane travel. The horn has a full, rich and warm tone, big but well centred sound. Response is quick, easy to control quality from pianissimo to fortissimo. The horn is only a little over six months old, I purchased it new at the end of October last year but am unable now to play due to focal dystonia condition that is not responding to rehab efforts well enough for me to enjoy playing again (I'm an ex professional orchestra player from many years back, I was having another good go at the problem!). No dents, a few tiny scratches in the finish that I think are wear-induced just up from the bell- request a closeup picture if you wish. $6,400 includes both cases (price negotiable). Horn is in Melbourne but can taken to Sydney as I travel frequently with our business. " phone 03 97525763. [23 July 2017]
