Further details: a lovely vintage Kruspe dating from the

era when all high quality brass instruments were hand-

made by a single 'master craftsman'.

The horn has an impressive 'professional' history, having been

played several years ago by Robert Cook, former

Principal, BBC N.O.W. and Scottish Chamber Orchestra.

 

The horn plays beautifully over the whole range, with a

well-slotted/centred high register in particular.

  

 Its 'sub-£2K' price qualifies it for a parallel

listing in the 'Intermediate' category, although it is 

a professional-quality horn.
