    I've owned and played both horns since '76.
    The most beautiful sounding Benge CG I've ever played and still is.....one of the last "hand made" Benges.
    I bought this Benge from my teacher, who studied under Mr Gordon in LA and picked out this horn for him.
    The Flugel was purchased new.

    Times and circumstances change.....I would like to pass these on to someone who can appreciate and enjoy these horns.
    Professionally played and cared for. The CG has not been restored, I never wanted to run the risk of changing anything about this horn.
    Included if wanted is a California chestnut leather triple horn gig bag, excellent shape, I use the third slot for mutes and accessories, etc. I have some mouthpieces as well, not included, but let me know if one is needed and I'll tell you what I have.
    I'm asking $2500 for the 2 horns, the bag, and the mutes if wanted.
    I'll make sure packaging is secure and protected and pay for shipping and insurance.
    You may email me if interested and I will send pictures and provide any other info you would like.

    Sound like a couple of beautiful horns. I love my 731 and my LA Benge. The flugel is a little more common but LA Benge's aren't easy to find. Good luck with your sale!

    Could you let me know if you still have this Benge for sale?
