Holton TR 185 FS

Holton TR 185 For Sale

1972-73
Great Horn (single trigger). Beautiful Holton sound.

This horn (all original) is different than my earlier 169s and E185 Holtons.
(Not sure of all the differences but it has a larger bell, slightly different slide and tuning slide)

No lacquer, No dents.
Slide is fast and light. Small spot on stocking which does not affect performance in anyway (see pics).
Valve is smooth. Linkage is virtually silent. Compression is excellent.
No case.
Serviced by the Slide Doctor, and recently completely overhauled by Ron Partch (Partch Brasswind) in Toronto, Canada.

Horn is ready to play!
I'm selling it because I simply have too many Holton single trigger bass trombones.

PayPal Only. Asking $1400.00. Open to reasonable offers.
