Getzen 725 dual bore?

Post by Stefano »

I’m looking for a horn for orchestral work. I have a chance to buy a Getzen 725 dual bore f attachment for $1350 with stand and case. It is described as in “near perfect” condition.

Assuming the horn checks out, any reason why I shouldn’t purchase? I’ve seen it mostly described as an intermediate student horn. I’m an amateur, but sound matters.

Bell section components the same as other larger Getzen Edwards horns. Most similar to the old Canadian Brass horns from decades ago. FWIW, I like this horn better than the 1047 variants. Always punched over its weight class for me.

Not sure on the price/market, I haven’t looked in a long time, but they are nice horns that play well.

Cheers,
Andy

I love mine. I'm selling my Shires I like it so much, as a matter of fact. $1350 is more than I spent on the two I now own, but it isn't a bad price relative to other similar horns.

OK. Guess I'll buy. This horn for orchestral and the Selmer Bolero for jazz.
