A very fine example of Holton’s copy of the older version of the Paxman Model 40 Bb/A+/ F alto horn.

This excellent yellow-brass lacquered horn has a detachable bell-flare and comes in an 'AMR' screw bell gig bag.  Players who regret that Paxman changed the design of their Model 40 in or about 1985 will be delighted with this lovely horn; even more so when they discover that the H-200 has a bell-throat profile that is very similar to the current Paxman ‘Europa’.

Our current horn shows hardly any sign of previous use: 3 tiny little dings, having no effect on its superb playing.

   About 6 months ago I played the ‘Quoniam’ aria  from Bach’s Mass in B minor on this model of  horn and it was probably the most accurate performance of the piece I have ever givenEvery pitch seemed reassuringly ‘slotted in place’.
