Holton 179 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.
Please contact Wilson (Sydney) - email@example.com [29 November 2012]

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 2.5 years ago, 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!

Custom Patterson lead pipe;
(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:
Singapore (now) /Nashville area (late June) /London (July)
Extras Included: Original lead pipe - not in very good condition;

Yamaha Model YHR 868 GD, full double, Bb / F, detachable bell, Very good condition. Beautiful rich creamy tone, excellent projection. Price $5750 or near offer. Extra large bore and throat with customized hand-crafted-bell. Red gold with silver trim. Water key. Adjustable hand support and adjustable little finger support. Thumb key easily changed to sit in either Bb or F. It is lacquered, and the bell is hand crafted, not factory Yamaha. Case - standard Yamaha suitcase style with moulded interior. Approximately 10 kg total weight horn and case. I am a keen amateur but have an extremely busy gig and concert schedule apart from my full-time day job. The horn was purchased, sight unseen, from Halstead's in Britain, with consultation and much negotiation as to suitability with Tony Halstead, and a few players I know in the Scottish Opera. The horn had a complete service by Tony before being sent to Australia. Even after all the best advice the horn is unsuitable for my particular needs. After recent hand surgery and even with the Bb/F trigger change the instrument is too heavy. Given the extremely large throat and bore this exacerbates the issues and would mean a complete change of hand position in the bell. I love it but it's not for me. I received the horn late last year, gave it a real try for a couple of weeks and ended up with more hand problems, even with the trigger changed around. Will ship to just about anywhere in the world. Free postage in Australia. Cost of shipping elsewhere depends on where you are. I have plenty of good references on eBay under the name ausrandoman.
I have many more photos - just ask if you want to see them. Contact Alan on email@example.com or call 03) 54441081 or (03) 5332 6281 Horn is in Bendigo [12 July 2011]

FINKE: Full Triple Bb/F/HighF Mod 78. Americus
The only horn to cover the whole repertoire from 'Baroque' to the
A compensating triple maybe light, but inaccurate in intonation, inefficient on the low F side, and 'stuffy' in the middle register.
The solution? A 'light weight' full Triple.
My German, hand made Finke 78 (F/Bflat/HighF) purchased in 2010, is light, because of its 'state of the art' carbon fibre valves. Its superb, free blowing, well centered response on all sides, is due to the excellent taper of its lead pipe and 'Americus' bell. Both are detachable and interchangeable with other models from the Finke factory.
It comes in beautifully lacquered brass, in excellent condition, with a well crafted 'back pack' gig bag for ease of transport.
At $10,500(Aus) o.n.o , this horn is cheaper than most brand new double horns of equal quality.
Why sell it then?
I'm a retiring professional who would like to see someone use it to its full potential.
