Further details: A lovely example of this ‘classic’

Paxman Model 40 horn in its pre-1985 layout,

considered by many players to be superior to

the currently available design.

This is a particularly fine example, with an

excellent free-blowing Bb side and a mellow-

sounding F-alto, with a rounder, richer sound

than is sometimes found in other instances of

this iconic model. 

Its sound is rather like the dark red colour of

its case! (photo to follow).
