Conn 71H Bb/F Bass Trombone - £1700.00
SELLING ON BEHALF OF CUSTOMER.We are only acting as an Agent on this sale. Our usual guarantee does not apply.

Generally very nice condition.Some lacquer missing from bottom bow, otherwise intact.Some evidence of dents being removed from outer slide, but slide is exellent and plating is intact on inner slides.Quite a few scratches, but this is purely cosmetic and does not detract from the excellent playing qualities of the instrument.

Comes with strong Gig Bag and mouthpiece.


Olds Super Trombone - £750.00
SELLING ON BEHALF OF CUSTOMER.We are only acting as an Agent on this sale. Our usual guarantee does not apply.

Sought after Professional Trombone in raw brass finish.Red brass bell. Unique Olds Fluted slides.Tiny amount of plating missing from one of the inner slides. Nevertheless, slide is superb and instrument plays as an Olds should.General condition is excellent.

Comes with an original Olds case and mothpiece.


Yamaha YSL651 Trombone - £450.00
SELLING ON BEHALF OF CUSTOMER.We are only acting as an Agent on this sale. Our usual guarantee does not apply.

I would describe this professional quality Trombone as "very good used condition".

The Lacquer is generally very good with only minimal loss in the "holding areas".Inside the Bell there are scratches where mutes have been inserted and a few very minor dents have been removed from the Flare.All this is superficial and to be expected from an instrument of this age and has no effect on its excellent playing qualities whatsoever.

The slide is also excellent although there is minor plating loss to the inside slides.

All these imperfections are reflected in the very reasonable price.

Comes in very good original case with a well used Denis Wick mouthpiece.

Highly recommended for someone looking for a quality Trombone without breaking the Bank.

Boosey and Hawkes 400 F/Bb Compensating Horn - £325.00
A few small patches of missing lacquer where some stays have been re soldered.Apart from this and a few minor dents, this Student Horn is in excellent condition.

Plays well. Looks good. Comes with mouthpiece and a good presentable case.

Excellent value for money . SOLD


Rosehill F/Bb Double - £355.00
These horns are built in the Lidl factory in Czheckoslovakia and sold under many different badges.Boosey and Hawkes marketed them under the 700 badge. This one is sold under the Rosehill badge.

I have seen a lot of these and they are usually in a very sorry state.This is usually because they are school instruments and have been misused and neglected. This one is different.

This horn has been privately owned from new.It was used by the original owner whilst he was at school.He gave up playing as soon as he left and the horn has been in storage for the past 40 years.

A few small marks in the Bell which have been mostly removed.Lacquer virtually intact.Generally in excellent condition both playability and cosmetically.Fitted with Hand Rest which takes the weight off the little finger.This is the best used horn of this model that I have ever seen.

The original case had suffered some damp damage, so it has been replaced with a very nice used case.Mouthpiece also included.

Ideal for any student

Besson 1000 Trumpet - £165.00
A couple of tiny marks on the top outside leg of the Tuning Slide. Apart from this, the Trumpet is immaculate.Plays like new.Comes with mouthpiece and original case,which is also in good condition.

These 1000 series Trumpets are well built and offer excellent value for money for the Student to Intermediate players and beyond.

Highly recommended.


Besson 1000 Trumpet - £155.00
This Lacquered Trumpet is outstanding and probably the best example I have seen of a lacquered Trumpet of this model.

It has had one tiny repair to the main stay which has been virtually invisibly repaired without damaging the lacquer.Apart from this, it can only be described as immaculate.Must be seen to be believed.

Comes with original case and mouthpiece.


Vincent Bach "Prelude" Trumpet - £105.00
From the Vincent Bach Student range, this Trumpet offers excellent value for money to any aspiring young players.One tiny dent has been removed from the bell and is now virtually invisible. Apart from this the Trumpet appears to be immaculate.Valves and playing qualities are both excellent and it comes with Bach 7c mouthpiece.

The case zip has broken and been replaced with 2 catches, but it works well and internally is excellent.

New price would be around 215.00


Trevor James Artemis Trumpet - £155.00
Immaculate. Good quality Student Trumpet.As New.Comes with original mouthpiece and case.

Yamaha 2335 Trumpet - £200.00
Very minor lacquer loss.Generally a superb example in excellent condition.Plays like new.

Comes with original Yamaha mouthpiece and case, also in excellent condition.


Yamaha 2335 Trumpet - £230.00
SELLING ON BEHALF OF CUSTOMER.

In good general condition.2nd valve slide has been de dented.One small dent in the back bend. Minimal lacquer loss.Everything works as it should and it plays well.Original Yamaha case and mouthpiece.


V.Bach Stradivarius Mod 25 Trumpet - £1750.00
Selling on behalf of Customer.A rare opportunity to own an "almost new" top of the range Trumpet.

This was purchased new from Phil Parker about 5 years ago, but has not had any use for the past 2 years due to the sudden unexpected death of its owner.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 and case included.

I have played beside this Trumpet many times since the day it was bought and can confirm that there is nothing wrong with the way it works!


"Bargain Basement" King 600 Trumpet - £100.00
Bought as part of a job lot.Lacquer about 99% intact. Just a couple of tiny spots missing where a stay, or similar, has been resoldered.

This Trumpet is generally in excellent condition and plays like a new instrument.It would not be a financially viable exercise to do a complete restoration, but there are many more years service left in it as it is. It would make an ideal starter instrument without breaking the bank.

The very modest price reflects the slight imperfections.

Mouthpiece and case included.


Trevor James Artemis Cornet - £145.00
AS NEW.Listed as Used, but it appears to have never been out of the case.Absolutely immaculate. Ideal starter instrument.

Besson 1000 Lac - £175.00
A couple of tiny dents have been invisibly removed.Lacquer intact Excellent condition. Comes with mouthpiece and original Besson case.

Besson 1000 Cornet SP - £185.00
Immaculate apart from one tiny mark in rim. Comes with mouthpiece and original case.

Besson 1000 Cornet SP - £185.00
Highly recommended Student Cornet. Well made and nice to play.One small crease removed from the Bell which is virtually invisible. Apart from this I can only describe it as Immaculate.

Comes with original case and mouthpiece.


Yamaha 2330II Cornet - £185.00
This Cornet has the usual signs of wear and tear from normal use.There are several marks and scratches in the lacquer, but the lacquer is mostly intact and the general appearance is very presentable.The case is excellent inside , but has a small amount of damage to the vinyl on the outside, apparently where some badges have been removed.Comes with original Yamaha mouthpiece.

I could do a complete refurbishment which would improve the looks and double the price,but it wouldn't make it play any better.

Generally, a very acceptable outfit in excellent playing order and at a very affordable price.


Besson 723 International Cornet (Lac) - £445.00
Exactly the same as the one listed below, but this one is in lacquer .Joint where the Mouthpipe enters the Tuning Slide has been resoldered, with minimal lacquer loss.Apart from this the lacquer is intact.

Valves excellent.Cosmetically excellent,just a couple of tiny "lacquer bleeds", which is not unusual for instruments of this era.The general appearance would suggest that this instrument has been extremely well looked after.

Comes with mouthpiece and original Besson case.


Besson 723 International - £395.00
Not immaculate.There are a few small scratches and marks from normal use, none of which affect the playing.But basically in excellent condition.

Silver intact and plays beautifully.

Comes with mouthpiece and an original Besson case.


Vincent Bach mod184 Cornet ML - £795.00
Amado waterkey fitted to the 3rd valve slide. Immaculate.I think this is the best way to describe it.

This is an ex Kneller Hall instrument.Originally lacquered, it has been stripped, completely overhauled and Silver Plated.

Now looks and plays like new. So easy blowing it virtually pays itself.

Comes with mouthpiece and original Bach Case

A Professional quality instrument at a very modest price.


Vincent Bach mod184 Cornet ML - £765.00
This ex Kneller Hall Cornet has been completely stripped , overhauled and silver plated.It now looks superb and plays beautifully.

Due to some previous poor repair work, it was necessary to fit a guard to the back Bell End.This in no way affects the excellent playing qualities and in my opinion actually enhances the instrument's looks.This is reflected in the very modest price.

Cornet comes with mouthpiece and an original V.Bach case.Plenty of use left in it. Inside is great but a bit of normal wear damage to the outside.


AK Amati Tenor Horn - £150.00
Virtually new.Couple of tiny marks, but looks and plays like a new instrument.

Comes with original case, also like new and mouthpiece.


Yamaha DD-11 Digital Percussion - £85.00
Selling for Customer who is giving up playing due to ill health and selling all his instruments.

I know nothing about these.All I can say is "it looks like new and works as it should".

Any interested parties ,please contact me and I will send you a copy of the original instruction sheet.
