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.

Conn Director Trumpet - £195.00
SELLING ON BEHALF OF CUSTOMER. This was owned by an instrument collector rather than a regular player.Following his recent demise,his Widow is now selling his collection of instruments.

This Trumpet and case are absolutely immaculate and could easily pass as new.Mouthpiece included.

Superb !!!


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.


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 - 195.00
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!


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.

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 New Standard Tenor Horn - £225.00
Apart from the finger buttons and valve tops,this is exactly the same instrument as the Boosey and Hawkes Imperial.

Before being superceeded by the present day Sovereign, they were top of the B&H/Besson range. They are still very popular today as semi-pro instruments.

This one is in excellent condition, with only a few very insignificant marks.Silver is intact and it plays beautifully.

Complete with mouthpiece and new case.


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.


Yamaha YAS62 Alto Saxophone - £1300.00
Not part of my usual stock.Selling on behalf of a friend who has had to give up playing due to poor health. It is not covered by our usual 6 month guarantee.

Missing one tiny piece of lacquer about the size of a 5p piece where the strap hooks on.A few insignificant scratches on the bottom bend. Apart from this it can only be described as immaculate.Comes with Vintage Selmer Signature C* mouthpiece.

This instrument has been lovingly cared for, is in excellent playing order and will be a genuine asset to whoever owns it.This would be ideal for someone looking for an upgrade, but can't afford a new instrument.(RRP is around 2250. Selmer mouthpiece RRP around 200).

Original case also in excellent condition.
