Maker: REYNOLDS

Model: 'Contempora'

Type: F/Bb full double

Bell throat size: medium-large

Alloy: yellow brass

Bell flare: fixed

Valve compression: good.

Visual/ cosmetic condition: very good for its age; there are just a few small scratches, worn lacquer in the usual places, and minor surface blemishes that have no effect on the horn’s excellent playing qualities.

Water key: conventional type, on the leadpipe.

Case: original Reynolds 'suitcase'; quite heavy, very protective.

Weight: 2.57 kg

Further details: A very good example of this ‘classic’ free-blowing double horn.

It plays evenly and sensitively over the whole range.

Although a professional-quality horn, (several years ago the

London Philharmonic Orchestra's horn section played Reynolds

horns) it is also listed in the Intermediate category on account of

its inexpensive price.

 

NB: The horn is currently housed with its owner in West Sussex; contact information can be provided on request.
