Alexander Bb Single Horn - MM

$3,300.00
Price: $3,300.00

The Alexander Single Bb horn has much the same advantage of lightness that the single F horn offers. Single Bb horns are highly prized by “high” hornists because they can make strenuous challenges in opera or concert that much easier. Typically, single Bb horns will be found in chamber music and solo situations. This unlacquered horn is in great condition and sports an excellent 1.2 on the compression testing machine (with 8 being the worst). This horn also has a stopping valve. Alexander detachable bell case included.

Geyer Single Bb w/Stopping Valve & F Extension - $3200

Geyer Single Bb w/Stopping Valve & F Extension - $3200
Geyer Single Bb w/Stopping Valve & F Extension - $3200
$3,200.00
Price: $3,200.00

I wasn't certain whether I should list this horn in the 'specialty' section. Though this horn is a single Bb horn it has a built in F extension valve which allows for all the pedal notes on the F horn - and, it has a stopping valve as well. When I began playing extra with the Boston Symphony I noticed that many of the players there owned this model and they would pull them out for the smaller 'chamber' pieces. These horns sound great and due to their lightness they play with ease. Across 5 valves the compression rating is 3.9. Conn Fixed Bell case included.

Cost: $3200.00

$3,495.00
Price: $3,495.00

This Single F Geyer is gorgeous. It's been in storage for many, many years and has had just one owner. The $3500 price is 'high' for a single F horn - but the bell on this instrument is in such amazing condition that if you own a Geyer with a worn out bell you will want to purchase this instrument simply for the bell - or if you're a collector this is a one of a kind horn. I've never seen another one - ever! Original Geyer Case included.

This lacquered yellow brass Kruspe includes the original slide to convert the horn to Eb. The engraving of the 'flying eagle' on the bell is gorgeous. This horn can be played as is, or if someone has a Kruspe in need of a new flare - this is it. No case.
