PAXMAN'S 'Series 2' horns always amaze me!


  Our current example, a rarely-available single Bb/A, made


of unlacquered yellow-brass, is no exception. Although


classed as an Intermediate instrument, this 'Series 2' horn is


fully capable of professional use, which is why it is listed in


both 'Professional' and 'Intermediate' categories.


Its bell throat is Medium-Large, so it is approximately


equivalent, but not identical to the Paxman Europa in the size


of the throat.  It plays with a fluent and even response


over the  whole range, with a clear, ringing sound, plus


Paxman's legendary clarity in the high register.




Rather light in weight (1.95 kg), it is in good cosmetic and


mechanical shape, with very good rotor compression.


The water spots on the bell can be removed by metal polish and


some hard work!




The photos can be viewed in greater detail
