Click to enlarge






Maker: ALEXANDER, Mainz, Germany


Model: 103


Type: F/Bb or Bb/F  full double



Bell throat: Medium


Alloy: unlacquered gold brass


Bell flare: fixed


Weight: 2.4 kg, much lighter than a typical modern Alex 103.




Visual/cosmetic condition: good, but with a fair amount of brass


tarnish, and some water spots on the bell.


Valve compression: excellent.


Two water keys: 1) 'Joykey' on the leadpipe;


2) 'Amado/Getzen' on the Bb 3rd slide.


Case: original Alex case in much-used condition, 'adequate

and functional' but not really protective enough. 

A brand new lightweight back-pack case is available for £75.


Further details: a very fine 1970s Alex 103, an excellent


player all-round, despite various aspects of its appearance.
