Further details: an excellent one-owner horn, its design based on the Alexander 1103 (Geyer model). Very well 'blown-in' during 15 years, by a continental, professional opera orchestra player. It plays with an intense, ringing 'core' to the sound in all registers.

Its modest price reflects its visual condition.
