New Listing Dürk D3 French Horn http://www.duerkhorns.de/en/duerkhorns/double-horns/model-d3/ Full Double F/Bb. Simular layout to the ever popular Alexander 103.
Lacquered body, Unlacquered bell. "Handcraftsmanship paired with the most modern technology - the D3. The bell and bell branch are manufactured in a single piece. Uniform material thickness throughout the complete instrument allows it to respond evenly in all registers. Powerful fortes or floating pianos - the D3 leaves no wish unfulfilled. The standard, interchangeable lead pipe system enables you to produce a wide variety of tone qualities - an instrument as individual as the person playing it.
Made in Dietmar Dürk's small workshop in Dromersheim, Germany. A former employee of Alexander, Dürk uses lead to bend his own bells, even though the time and cost involved is much greater than with other methods. The extra work has been proven to have a positive effect on tone quality and durability. In establishing their line of instruments, Dietmar Dürk and his staff have followed the example of well-known, long-standing instrument builders, integrating the ideas of a younger generation while carrying on the tradition of hand-built instruments." Gold Brass. This instrument has been maintained with the utmost care and attention. Its Layout gives it similar properties as the Alexander 103 model, with a few important differences: The Bell and "branch" are made as a single piece, meaning one less join to impede the reverberation, resonance and free-blowingness of the instrument. The leadpipe is removable/exchangeable! I ordered the horn with all three different sized leadpipes (1, 2, and 3), which means that together with mouthpiece choice, the instrument has the flexibility to be more customised and individualised than anything else on the market for the same price. With the simple unscrewing of three screws and a bolt, it takes about 3-5 minutes to swap a lead pipe over. For easy transportation and care I have made an extra little carry case for the two lead pipes that aren't on the instrument, which also comes with two protective "socks", the right sized allen key for the bolt, and a few spare bolts if the one you're using goes bouncing off under the couch, never to be seen again, during a swap over. The thumb lever has a uniball clamp, making it adjustable in three different dimensions. It is also easily changeable to sit in either F of Bb. I have had an extra adjustable finger hook added (yes, two finger hooks). This was done for extra ergonomic support while I was recovering from a finger injury, but I liked it so much I kept it. There maybe some complications fitting it the case I intend to sell it in, but nothing that cant be remedied once I know your preferences as the case can be customised, and the second finger hook can be removed at no extra cost to yourself. The valves and slides are maintained frequently and given a full service every year and hence are in perfect working order.
Here is what many high caliber players think of the D3: http://www.duerkhorns.de/?id=52&L=1 I am the first owner of this instrument. It was made to order in 2013 and cost a substantial amount to get into the country. $8000 Ashley Skyring 0423 652 651 ashleyskyring@gmail.com Mt Warren Park, QLD [6 April 2016]

New Listing 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]
