"Full double, silver plated Conn6d. Serial number is 411314, making it one of the older, very respected Elkart horns. The sound is fairly compact and bright for a Conn. As it has seen it's years, there are small scratches on the surface and the tarnish has worn off on the inside of the bell. I just had it taken to my local horn repair shop to have it chemically cleaned, all small parts replaced and to ensure that everything is in excellent working order. There are places on the bell where you can see scars from past dent removal. I have included these spots in the pictures.

Updated Listing Lawson Model 804GL (predecessor to the Fourier). Ambronze, large belled horn. Large bore. Serial Number: #902S. This is a trademark large, heavy Lawson horn with a huge dark sound. It is in excellent playing condition with a degree of wear that you would expect from a horn this age (built August 1985). This horn had a full valve job in Dec 2009, so you will be thrilled with it for years to come. Selling because the big Lawson sound sticks out like a sore thumb here in Singapore! Upgrades by James Patterson in December 2009 include: Custom Patterson lead pipe; Flipper; Valve rebuild; Strip lacquer; (Total Value: USD $2000) Condition & Care: Horn has undergone yearly ultrasonic cleaning yearly since valve rebuild in 2009 (much healthier for the horn than chemical flush because it uses only water) I use Hetman oils. The instrument had one small patch near the LH pinky when I acquired it in 2003. See the photo for details. Location & Availability: It is now in Ken Pope's shop in Boston Extras Included: Original lead pipe - not in very good condition; Hard rectangular "suitcase". Sturdy, but not pretty. Price: USD $5,000. Contact: Rebecca Watters rw@rebecca-watters.com [17 November 2015]
