Alexander 103 (Historically significant)

$3,000.00

Not only is this one of the oldest Alexander 103's I've seen, it's one of the most historically significant as well.

The name: Bruno Jaenicke is inscribed on the bell - he played principal horn with the

BSO from 1913 to 1919. After two years with the Detroit Symphony (1919-1921), Jaenicke became co-principal with Franz Xaver Reiter with the New York Philharmonic, then principal from 1922 to 1943. He can be heard on a recording of Strauss's Ein Heldenleben under Willem Mengelberg. Jaenicke's two brothers-in-law, Robert and Adolph Schulze, played second and fourth horn with him in New York.

 This horn comes from the estate of a student of his.

It's in good condition, with a small protective guard by the thumb lever.  The bell is not worn or thin, and overall the horn is in good condition.
The horn would need a valve job in order to come to its full potential - but what an instrument, and what history!

The leadpipe only takes a very slim shanked mouthpiece (included with the horn) - but a  modern mouthpiece could easily be turned down to fit this horn.

VERY old formed fixed bell case included
