Type:  F/Bb compensating double


Bore / Throat: medium

Alloy:  lacquered yellow-brass

Bell flare:  fixed

Lacquer: 95% OK 

Valve compression: good

Visual / cosmetic condition: good all round. The horn ‘has seen some use’ (a few very small surface dings) but generally it is in ‘good but not outstanding' condition. This is reflected in the inexpensive price.

Weight: 2.45 kg

Case: used 'Gator', lightweight with shoulder strap, in 'almost new' condition.

Further details: A good beginner instrument; a logical upgrade from a ‘mini' / ‘kinder horn’; an ‘improver’ horn for the more advanced young player up to about Grades 6-7.  

This rather compact but technically full-size horn plays with a sweet and centred tone. Its 4th / thumb valve, although not ideally placed for a small hand, is more comfortable than on some older Anborgs of this model.  The F horn’s ‘freedom of blow’ is slightly tighter than that of e.g. a Paxman 'Studenti', but its Bb side is open, clear and ringing.

NB: the horn is currently housed with its owner in Cambridgeshire CB24. Contact information can be provided on request.
