Courtois 155R Flugel Horn - £775.00
Top of the range LB Flugel Horn with 1st and 3rd Triggers.

This instrument was completely overhauled and Silver Plated and sold by me 2 years ago.It was used by the new owner as a second instrument and consequently has only had light use.

The owner died unexpectedly earlier this year and I have been asked by his Widow if I could re sell it.

A superb buy for any Flugel player. Complete with case and mouthpiece.

V.Bach Stradivarius Mod 25 Trumpet - £2000.00
Selling on behalf of Customer.

This was purchased new from Phil Parker about 2 years ago.Sadly the owner died suddenly and unexpectedly recently and I am selling this on behalf of his Widow.

There is one tiny dent in the mouthpipe near the finger hook and a few unobtrusive marks in the bell spout. Otherwise everything is fine.Mouthpiece included.

I have played beside this Trumpet many times during the past few years and can confirm that there is nothing wrong with the way it works!

Vincent Bach Stradivarius Trumpet - £835.00
This is a Model 37 Trumpet,which has been fitted with a NEW Bach Stradivarius Artisan Bell.

It has been refurbished and silver plated and is a great looking instrument

Like all Bach's, it is a superb playing instrument.

Comes with mouthpiece and genuine Bach case which is in fair condition.

Besson 1000 Trumpet (silver plate) - £185.00
Excellent Condition.Appears to have had very little use.

Complete with original case and mouthpiece.Both in excellent condition.

Highly Recommended

Besson 723 Cornet - £375.00
This was fully restored and replated by me several years ago. It has now been part exchanged for a Baritone as the owner has changed instruments.

I have removed one small dent from the rear bend,which is now virtually invisible. Apart from that, the instrument is in excellent condition.Silver intact,plays well,comes with mouthpiece and an original Besson case.

Besson 723 Cornet - £395.00

B&H Sovereign 920 MB Cornet - £695.00
This is a sought after "round badge" model in superb condition.Must be seen and played to be appreciated.

Comes with Mouthpiece and original B&H blue case

Yamaha 2330IIS Cornet - £265.00
Superb!!! It had a tiny dent near the Finger Hook, which I have removed and is now virtually invisible.This is the only thing which prevents me from describing the Cornet as immaculate.

It appears to have had very little use.Comes with original case and mouthpiece,which are both in excellent condition.

If you want a "new" instrument ,but can't afford one,this is the Cornet for you!!!

Besson 600 Cornet - £175.00
Selling on behalf of customer.

Giving up playing due to ill health.Instrument is immaculate. Case almost immaculate.Complete with mouthpiece.

Getzen Capri Cornet - £250.00
A very good example of this quality Cornet.A few insignificant dents, most of which have been completely removed. There are a couple of tiny patches on the back of the instrument where the silver has come off in the "holding position", but these are between the bell and the valve section and not easy to see.Apart from that the Cornet is excellent.

Valves look like new and everything works as it should.

For years I played in a Championship Section Band and the entire Cornet Section consisted of Getzen Capri Cornets.They certainly didn't stop us winning any prizes!!

Complete with mouthpiece and original Getzen Case.

V.Bach Stradivarius Mod 37 Cornet - £565.00
Generally very good condition.Lacquer is almost intact except for an area on the bell which appears to have had a dent removed.A crease has also been removed from the bell,but lacquer is still intact here.

Mechanically excellent and generally has the appearance of an instrument that has been well looked after.

Comes with V.Bach 5C mouthpiece and an original Bach case, which does the job , but has seen better days.

Yamaha 354 Trombone - £400.00
Selling on behalf of customer.

This Trombone is in showroom condition. Appears to have had very little use.Highly recommended. Comes with 2 mouthpieces and Trombone stand.

AK Amati Tenor Horn - £165.00
Virtually new.Couple of tiny marks, but looks and plays like a new instrument.

Comes with original case, also like new and mouthpiece.

Yamaha 301 Baritone - £525.00
Completely overhauled and silver plated.Plays like a new instrument.Generally in very good condition and is a good looking instrument.

Unfortunately, the bell rim has been vandalised,(presumably by someone who got fed up with their lessons)and although I have repaired it satisfactorily,it is impossible to make it look new as most of the damage was to the bell rim and the marks cannot be lifted out.

However, still a very fine instrument and well worth considering.

You would normally expect to pay between 650 and 750 for one of these.This one is priced to reflect the imperfections.

Comes with mouthpiece and Yamaha case in excellent condition.

Weltklang EEb Tuba - offers around £500.00
Selling on behalf of customer.

Rotory Valve EEb Tuba.Few dents but nothing serious.Small amount of lacquer missing.Generally good presentable condition.Very easy blowing and fast light valve action.

Difficult to evaluate, but customer is looking for offers around 500.

Chime Bars - £80.00
I know nothing about these.I am selling them for a cutomer who has had to give up playing due to ill health and is selling his collection of instruments.

20 Chime Bars covering 1.5 Octaves from C to G.

Metal bars are mounted on composite wood effect sound boxes in a very neat carry case.Sounds delightful and appears to be in tune.

There is no makers name, but Israel is stamped on one of the bars.

Looks like new.

Yamaha DD-11 Digital Percussion - £150.00
