5. Check the post date. It may be quite old. Sellers - update your post to let people know it's SOLD.

Enjoy browsing and posting in the Classifieds! Please send the moderators a PM if you need clarification.

NOTE: If you want to PM or e-mail another member, you can only do so after having two approved posts.

All reasonable offers considered New prices for parts given for context.

I’ve had the horn for about 12 years. Plays great. Slide is a 9/10. It has suffered from normal lacquer wear over the years so I refinished it with a satin finish. It has a few small dents in the bell and one on the main tuning slide but they are only cosmetic. It is a 12 year old horn so it does not look new. Take a look at the pictures. If you happen to be in the Metro Detroit area, I’m sure we could arrange a chance to play test it.


Bell (Shires Bell Price $1,380 at Hornguys)
Edwards 336CF
8 ½” inch
22 gauge
Yellow Brass
Soldered Rim
Tempered
Double Buffed
Shires fittings. You could switch the bell with a Shires but this bell would not fit an Edwards horn.


Slide – ($1,330 at Hornguys)
.547 bore
Standard weight yellow brass
Nickel-Silver wide crook

Valve – ($1,910 at Hornguys)
Tru-bore valve
Custom Satin Trombone finish


3 interchangeable leadpipes(description from shires website) $130 per pipe from hornguys
1 – Small venturi diameter – centered sound with very clear articulation
2 – Medium venturi diameter – open sound, generally the most popular size
3 – largest venturi diameter – very, broad sound

Saturn Spit Valve

Used beat up old Protec case

New price - $4,995 from Hornguys

No warranty. Sold as is. No returns or Refunds.

All reasonable offers considered

I'd prefer to sell it. But I'm curious to know what you have in mind?

Hi there,

Because of its age, I would give you $2300 for the horn let me know.
Thanks,

Gord

I don’t think I could go that low on it. Thanks for taking a look.
