Price: $4,000.00

Wunderlich horns are most known for their most famous employee, Carl Geyer. Some of them were actually made by Geyer upon his arrival in the US. This is a very early Wunderlich, as can be attested to by the way the leadpipe goes over the front of the piston valve assembly. This horn, though it has poor compression, plays well and would get that much better with full compression. The engraving on the bell is clear as the day it was done, there are no patches, except for a protective guard over the leadpipe wrap. Olds fixed bell case included. $4000

Schmid triples have a wonderful reputation for being one of the best triple horns on the market today. This triple is no exception. Unlike other triple horns which struggle in the mid and low registers, this horn punches out a solid tone everywhere in the player's range. Even on the High Eb side, the horn maintains evenness in tone and keeps the clarity of the rest of the horn, without being too scratchy. In the middle, the Bb side makes playing effortless and projects like a jem.

In addition, the Bb side of the horn maintains the quality of sound up through the high register. Though this horn has been in storage for a long time and there is considerable damage to the finish, the rest of the horn is in great shape and the valves boast a compression rating of 1.2. 

 

This horn comes with an MB5 case.

Price: $7,000.00

If you like the sound of the Vienna horns - this would be the instrument for you. This fixed bell, lacquered Pizka has a custom removable leadpipe and plays great.

The metal is not stretched or stressed when pressed upon the mandrel as the leadpipe is not made from ready made tubes but from specially sheet metal cut to fit the required dimensions bent in lead".

Kruspe Double Unlacquered Original
$4,000.00

This original Kruspe is unique in its use of two change valves instead of the standard one. The valves are on oposite sides of the normal valve section. This horn is in pretty good exterio condition with few minor dents. It is unlacquered. The valve compression registers a solid 3.5 across all five valves, which is good for a horn of this age. This horn could definitely be a good collectors item or a good horn for a loving home.

Price: $2,400.00

This is a Compensating Double Kruspe Horn. This is a true Wendler model as opposed to the Gumbert model, which has the "funky" f tuning slide.

It is unlacquered and the engraving is as clear and sharp as the day the horn was made. With a valve job this horn could be a fabulous instrument. The compression rating is 6.4 (8 is the worst possible score). Original fixed bell case is included.

Kruspe Brass Double - $4500
$4,500.00
Price: $4,500.00

This unlacquered brass Kruspe double has the best of both worlds. It has that fabulous 'classic' horn sound of old yet it's been 'modernized' by Walter Lawson though the addition of a Lawson Leadpipe and a valve rebuild. The compression number is 4 but that is due to slides which need to be expanded or a thicker grease since the individual valves give readings below 2 (better than many new horns). There is no dezincification on this horn - it has decades of use left in it. Professionally owned and maintained. Holton Fixed bell case included.

Cost: $4500.00
