About a week ago we had an older gentleman come into the shop I’m at for some new corks on his valves. Turns out it was a 112b... and this man had bought it brand new. It was in fantastic shape, and the valves were like new- obviously he had taken care of it. I took some time to tell him what a rare and desirable horn he had and he was ecstatic; he had no idea. Sometimes this job is quite challenging and discouraging but it’s things like this that make it totally worth it for me. As for the horn, I was surprised at the weight difference. I happened to have my 22b NYS special there with me and I compared them side by side and the 112b really is noticeably heavier. It played incredibly and I told him that when the time comes for him to sell it, put me first on the list!
