SCHMID Model ES1, gold brass

Click to enlarge









Model: ES1


Serial number: 1288


Type: Lacquered gold brass full double in F/Bb or Bb/F.


  As with all Schmid double horns, the ingenious design incorporates a detachable 'H' piece on the main tuning slide. When this is removed, the horn is in F# / B natural or B natural / F#.  Another bonus of the Schmid design is that the two main slides can be pulled out far enough to give E/A rather than F/Bb.   Very useful for e.g. the Spohr Octet in E!


Detachable 'Medium'  bell flare with nickel silver garland/kranz


Water key: TWO 'JoyKeys'


Duck's foot


Overall condition: Very good, with slight lacquer wear in the


expected places.


Weight: 2.25 kg


Case: Paxman-style flat black fibreglass case by 'Kingham'.


Unexpectedly back on the market, this beautiful horn was sold 

to its current owner by Halstead Music about 2.5 years ago.


When I had it here I loved it so much that I nearly bought it myself!


The horn is housed with its owner in Barkway, Hertfordshire, UK.
