This horn was made by Engel in Vienna. It is an un- lacquered yellow brass instrument with a fixed bell garland flare. In splendid condition overall.
This horn is being sold by Peter Dyson – longtime 4th horn of the CBSO. It came to him from the collection of Josef Veleba, who played in the Vienna Philharmonic from 1940-1977 and then taught at the Vienna conservatory. It was sold as part of his estate in 1994 – you couldn’t find a vienna horn with better provenance!
The receiver takes a mouthpiece with a vienna shank – a mouthpiece is supplied with the horn.
The horn comes with a modern backpack style case.
The perfect instrument for joining in with Scottish vienna horns or vienna horns of scotland – who enthusiastically get together to worship these special instruments – also suitable if you are thinking of auditioning for the VPO!
