"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. Like-new Pro-Tec hard case with side pouch and shoulder strap.Email David at email@example.com for more pictures and information. Asking $1,350 for what would make an excellent horn for an intermediate student.

Holton Tuckwell modell french horn (the original H104!)
. "It has no dings or dents, ultrasonically cleaned, valves are tight 90% (string action and very fast, smooth), lacquer has normal use (at the hands are some wearing). Three changeable leadpipes, with intelligent, clever use, you can switch with the light chamber playing between the big orchestra playing sound. The bell is hand hammered, has a large throat, with bayonet-joint ring set, (only need a half turn!) The instrument has a nickel-silver body and rose brass branch and bell. The horn is around 20 years old, but used for 10 years (5-5 years had a holiday). Great condition. Was used professionally by a legendary fourth horn player and I play first with this horn in the orchestra. The instrument has a big warm sound, very good low range and easy high register, up and down the sound is consistent. Comes with the original leather Holton flat case. If you have any question, please feel free to write or skype me. firstname.lastname@example.org Price: 2800 euro

Full double horn. When I bought it 4 years ago it was already nth hand - my best guess is it has been ex-orchestral band instrument. Serial number 599864.
The photo probably has shown the worse of it, you may imagine that the whole instrument has a number of scratches and minor dents.
However, the sound and slides and valve mechanism is still perfect. I used it for grade 5 and 7 exams. I use both this Holton 179 (brighter tone) and Conn 10DR (warmer tone) to prepare for my grade 8 exam, and I decided to use Conn instead.
I am willing to take $2400 ono, which is lower than market value. I am quite sure any buyer would first be distracted by the cosmetics of the instrument, until they produce the powerful Holton sound.
Playing this horn will give you an aura of being a horn veteran. The original Holton case (not perfect as well) included. If you can appreciate this horn I assume you already have your mouthpiece.

$5000 ono. Contact Jenni on 0416 262 964 or firstname.lastname@example.org (Melbourne) [9 November 2010]

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: Nashville, TN
Extras Included: Original lead pipe - not in very good condition; Hard rectangular "suitcase". Sturdy, but not pretty.
Price: SGD $10,000 or AUS/USD $8000. Any of those currencies accepted.

FINKE Full Triple Bflat/F/HighF. Mod 78. 'Americas'
Purchased in 2010 and hardly used, this is the latest model from the Finke factory. Although large bore (similar to Kruspe and Paxman 'L').
it has a free, but well centered, response over the whole range on all sides. The low 'F' side is exceptional for a triple, as is the Bflat side middle register, which on many triples can be very 'stuffy'. It has a detachable bell and lead pipe, interchangeable with others available at the Finke factory. It has carbon fibre valves which help reduce the overall weight.
It is in lacquered brass and comes with an unused Finke back pack.
I'm selling this horn as a retired professional and would like to see it go to someone who would use it to it's full potential.
$10,500 (Aus) or reasonable offer.
