Many years ago the Pottag model by Reynolds (No longer in business) won a couple blind taste tests at the International Horn Workshop. Ever since then they've been highly prized by players 'in the know'. This one comes to us by way of England where Horn customizer Tom Fisher rebuilt the valves, installed his custom leadpipe and ergonomic thumb lever, and put on a hand hammered Sandner flare. (All of this is quite expensive!).
The compression is great at 1.6. The lacquer has been stripped, and the bell has been converted to a detachable model with an Alexander ringset. Very minor dings - nothing big at all, and no sign of previous repairs.
A Thomann detachable bell case is included. GREAT horn for the $$
