Odds are that you have probably heard this horn in action.  Owned by one of America's foremost principal hornists it has been wonderfully taken care of.  This thing PLAYS!  I'm a huge proponent of Paxman triple horns and this one is very similar to mine.  It was made in 1973, its a full triple and has absolutely amazing compression (1.0 across 5 valves!).  The 'matte' finish is not original but I think it looks awesome.  Recently serviced and cleaned the valves are silent and efficient.  A flipper and adjustable fingerhook have been added for comfort.  The 'X' designates 'extra large' bell and tail which give this horn it's beautiful dark tone.  The high F side of the horn matches the lower sides in timbre beautifully.  There is a protective guard by the thumb and a few minor dings here and there but nothing unusual.  

Protec case included.
