Engelbert Schmid French Horn. Full Double F/Bb with A stopping valve. http://www.engelbert-schmid-horns.com/index.php/en/french-horns
Lacquered body. Unlacquered bell. Exceptional craftsmanship. Gold Brass. This instrument has been maintained with the utmost care and attention. The medium bore and Geyer-wrap layout gives it wonderfully centered intonation across the entire range, from double pedal C (two ledger-lines below bass clef in new notation) to super F (three ledger-lines and a space above the treble clef). The valves have been maintained frequently, given a full service every 2 years and are immaculate, fast, smooth, quiet, easy. The string mechanism makes them easily adjustable to be perfectly ergonomic for you hand. The slides have been maintained with the same amount of care and are equally immaculate and smooth. Noble sound. Smooth slurs. Excellent dynamic range without getting "blatty" or harsh at fff
Features: Spun, unlacquered bell http://www.engelbert-schmid-horns.com/index.php/en/bells . The bell has been polished for sale, but will tarnish over time and look something like this bell; http://www.all-brass-instruments.com/uploads/brass/22/230409490686-1.jpg  String valves http://www.engelbert-schmid-horns.com/index.php/en/mechanics  The A stopping valve is a very useful addition. When playing stopped on the Bb side it removes the need to transpose! The main tuning slide is "double extendable" which can be used to put the instrument in E/A, though it takes careful reworking of the valve tuning slides and is better in some registers than in others.
There are a couple of minor surface blemishes but these are barely noticeable aside when looking for them. These are not at all noticeable to the audience. Two water keys. Leather palm guard. The thumb key sits in F (meaning, that if you're not pressing any valves, the instrument is in F). This is due to the ergonomics of the A stopping valve. It can be swapped by ordering a replacement valve from Mr Schmid, but this is not recommended.  Comes in a Black Macus Bonna MB5 case http://www.mbcases.com.br/en/products/mb5/ (one broken but repairable "handle strap"). Comes with some spare valve string, some Hetman rotor oil (the one she likes), polishing cloth, lacquer polish, and one mouthpiece (I have many to choose from. We'll do our best to find something desirable). $8000 Ashley Skyring 0423 652 651 ashleyskyring@gmail.com Mt Warren Park, QLD [6 April 2016]
