    No specs. It was really heavy and looked like hell. Sounded good. Played good. That's about all I know. I would guess that Charlie owns the only Monette posthorns in existance.

    If you're looking to get a posthorn or other "antique" brass instrument, check out: There's a nice selection of posthorns, natural trumpets, hunting horns, rotary trumpets, etc.

    Excuse my ignorance but it is my understanding that a post horn is also called a hunting horn. I can not seem to find any thing with the name of post horn in this site.

    This is the one I have and the green leather strap keeps coming off.


    It looks like the person who owns this horn in the picture put a Bach mpc with it for it looks nothing like the mpc that these horns come with.

    This is the name on the bell: Furst – Pless (there are two dots over the "u").

    Thanks for the link,

    Fürst-Pless aslo makes a version with valves. Hermann Sauter used one for Rilling in the pre-corno de caccia days with a custom leadpipe and a flugelhorn mouthpiece for the two Christmas Oratorio horn movements.
