The 42 is a straight horn. Does the horn have a trigger? Roughly what year?

To be clear...are you looking for a double-case (one case for two horns) or two cases, one for each horn? I have a few cases, tenor only. If you're interested you can email from the button on the left.

My R1 was a great horn. I sold it since I have too many horns. Similar specs to a Bach 16 but infinitely easier to play.

My R12 is still my main small-bore. What a great ballad horn!
