    Multiple Horns for sale, links to drop box for pictures. All prices include paypal and shipping to the lower 48. I will discount if you use friends and family paypal.

    #1 Conn 61B. $650 Silver with some silver loss, dings, scratches and signs of repair. Valves and slides are great, horn plays very well, just has cosmetic imperfections. I believe this is an Abeline texas era horn, very similar to the 60b with a first valve saddle. Would make a great backup horn or horn for an advancing student. https://www.dropbox.com/sh/9yu34k770f6tch1/AABceYw8hwQ-3oVKTinl_Abma?dl=0

    #2 SOLD Jupiter XO 1600i Roger Ingram. $950 Plenty of lacquer loss around the valve section, but excellent physical condition. Everything is straight, valves and slides are excellent, no evidence of any significant repairs. This horn plays really well. Excellent compression. Comes with the rounded main tuning slide and heavy valve caps, no other accessories include. Original Leather case included, and it is beautiful. https://www.dropbox.com/sh/iwspifnegm4sjqt/AACZ19HSt_jHMcaTIpJzS1aNa?dl=0

    #3 Jupiter XO 1600i Roger Ingram $1200. This one is very similar to #3, but with much better lacquer and the square slide. Lacquer is about 95% on this one, just very minor wear at the contact points. No damage, no dents, no rot, everything works perfect. Valves look nearly brand new. Case is in very good condition. https://www.dropbox.com/sh/lcfmbab2q86cuxs/AADMC_-au5XT4ZEqnQt7Z7R4a?dl=0

    #4 Boosey and Hawks (made by english besson) Imperial Cornet. $375 SN dates it to 1982. This horn has been used and shows some signs of repairs, but still plays very nice. Great way to get into British style cornets. It is very clear to me that this was made in the Edgeware Besson factory, the valves are great and very similar to every other Edgeware Besson I have had, the serial number is stamped on the underside of the bell near the valve block. Trigger works perfect. Case is fully function but is certainly used. https://www.dropbox.com/sh/yuj6egw39x9ooxb/AAA3usdCM0Jq89T8z84pdTrca?dl=0

    Update:

    Various horns for sale, all prices include shipping to the lower 48. Paypal accepted. Happy to answer questions and send more pics.




    #1. 1955 Selmer 23A Balanced - 1955 French Selmer 23a balanced model trumpet. This is a .460 bore horn and plays very much like a modern trumpet, with the added benefit (if you like it) of the valves forward, balanced design. I believe the 23a was the model that Harry James preferred and played. This particular horn is in excellent playing condition, with some cosmetic wear. There is lacquer wear, and evidence of minor dent removal. However, there is no rot, no cracks and no patches, everything is solid. Slides all move easily, including the commonly stuck 3rd slide dump slide. The valves are light and fast with very good compression. There is some minor visible wear on the pistons, but it is very minor especially for a horn from the 50s. Compression is very good, low notes speak easily, no drag in the upstroke of the pistons. This horn comes with a new gator case. It was just cleaned and serviced and is ready to play. $1000




    #2. Eastlake King Silver Flair 1055T - Real deal King Silver Flair 1055T, not the intermediate model 2055 made by UMI. This horn was made by King in Eastlake Ohio in 1973 SN 480xxx. Excellent playing condition, valves and slides work great. No red rot. Excellent compression. Silver plate in 99%. Very minor tiny dings/scratches. Please view all pictures, they show everything. This was the top of the line horn for King during this era, a true professional level horn popular with Commercial Artists, Jazz players, big band players, rock band musicians, College students etc.... Original Case included. I am happy to answer any questions you may have. $875




    #3. Conn 61B - Silver with some silver loss, dings, scratches and signs of repair. Valves and slides are great, horn plays very well, just has cosmetic imperfections. I believe this is an Abeline texas era horn, very similar to the 60b with a first valve saddle. Would make a great backup horn or horn for an advancing student. Case included $650




    #4. B&H Imperial Cornet - SN dates it to 1982. This horn has been used and shows some signs of repairs, but still plays very nice. Great way to get into British style cornets. It is very clear to me that this was made in the Edgeware Besson factory, the valves are great and very similar to every other Edgeware Besson I have had, the serial number is stamped on the underside of the bell near the valve block. Trigger works perfect. Case is fully function but is certainly used. Great playing English cornet at a bargain price. $375




    #5. Conn Heritage 80B Large Bore - UMI Era Conn 80B Heritage. This is the large bore (.462) version. Really nice playing horn, excellent intermidiate horn or backup horn for the pro player. I would be 100% comfortable taking this on gigs with my rock band or big band. Everything works as it should and it plays nice. It does have some silver wear, along with one spot of raw brass on the bell tail, see the pictures. Comes as pictured with the original case in excellent condition. No other accessories included. $650
