(see: ) *also see price options.

Further details: A great example of this ‘classic’ Paxman Model 40 horn in its pre-1985 layout, considered by many players to be superior to the one that is currently made.
This is a particularly fine example, with an excellent free-blowing Bb side and a sweet-sounding F-alto with a rounder and mellower tone than some.

NB Price options: if supplied with an excellent 'Fusion' well-padded gig bag with backpack straps, instead of the Cardocase, the price will be £3,750.
