This used horn has an excellent compression reading of 0.9, but a fair amount of lacquer wear throughout the body. About 75% of the lacquer is intact, and there are no major dents. Some dings throughout.
The Paxman 23 represents Paxman's entry into the 'Geyer style' horns. As with typical Geyer-type horns, this model is quite free blowing but still benefits from that unmistakable Paxman sound quality that we have all grown to love. The Model 23 incorporates the Merewether system which allows the airstream to flow the same way through the valve block on both the F and the Bb horns. As the valve rotors turn in sympathy with the air stream, not against it, so slurs and legato passages are beautifully smooth.
This horn comes with a beautiful two-tone blue and turquoise MB5 case ($525 value).
