Paxman packs a big punch into these moderately priced horns known as their 'Academy and Series' models. The valves on these are tight as can be (a perfect 0.1 rating on this horn!) and it's an affordable Geyer style wrap as well.
This one is made of lacquered yellow brass. Th lacquer has worn away inside the flare but the rest of the horn has good coverage. The gold brass leadpipe wards off any possible red-rot. Easy playing horn! There is some tube distortion coming out of the 1st valve but it certainly doesn't seem to affect the way this horn plays.
