Posted 12/11/98   Horn Wanted:   I am looking for either a Wiener (Vienna) single F horn, or any horn with ascending 3rd valve.     Currently I divide my time between the UK and Germany so those are thecountries where it would be easiest for me to buy.   But I would consider other European locations.

Detachable Leadpipe. 2 leadpipes included (the original Hill pipe and a McCracken pipe). This horn has had several improvements made to it. I didn't like the original bracing.

Posted 1/23/99   Horn For Sale:   I am looking to sell my horn. It's a Paxman 25L gold brass, with detachable bell. The bell has been silver plated, and looks pretty gosh darn cool. It's barely 2 years old and has a few dents in it. I've
taken out of my asking price due to those dents. I'm asking $4500 for it,
but I'm willing to negotiate. I've got a Marcus Bona case, which I'll throw
in for that price, as well.

Posted 2/19/99 Horn for Sale:  I am selling my Paxman 25L. It is about 3 years old, gold brass, unlaquered, screwbell, dual bore, and in excellent condition no dents, or dings. The horn was chem-cleaned by Chuck Ward in Cleveland about 8 months ago. It also has a flat, Paxman-Cheney (flat) Case (made in England).  It was "de-burred" by the Brasswind shop in Pittsburgh. (They smooth the ends of the slides, to cut down on resistance.....) It is a great horn!  I'm asking $5000 USD. (They are going for $5700-$6000 new) It slots very well, has a nice high range, great low range, and is even throughout the registers. THe sound is warm.... but dark. It does get more brassy with extreme loud dynamics. Great orchestral horn. If interested, please email me at chj@uakron.edu.
