It is rare that Heidi or Luke gush about a horn in the workshop because we are privileged to see so many. This one though is from a vintage era in Paxman’s horn making. All UK made and still playing very, very well. These horns were what gave Paxman their reputation. This one dates from 1981 and is a medium bore with a fixed bell. (We can easily convert to screw bell, so enquire).
It is fair to say that this horn has seen knocks and lacquer damage over the years, but this makes the price a little lower and an exceptional instrument more affordable.
We would play this ourselves and we have the pick of many! Come and try it.
Sold with original Paxman hard case.
