Long held to be one of the finest professional Frank Holton horns of any era, these are rare and near impossible to find in this mint like excellent condition. This is the LP (low pitch model) with bf - A change-up tuning (Pat 21-1924) and includes a fine V.
7C mouthpiece, original Lyre w/ case and all packed into the original hard shell case with Holton Medallion. Matching serialized numbered parts indicates the horn is still all original.
The horn was completely disassembled, carefully cleaned to preserve the patina, lubricated and re-assembled with new cork and felt. The slides are smooth and free and the valves are very responsive, quiet and smooth with excellent rebound. The absence of valve wear and the general condition of the horn suggests it was not played very much and was probably a collector horn as it came from an owner with many fine horns. The horn has great intonation and tone in all registers and has the power and depth to cut through a full orchestra for solo performance. It flows easily with minimal but even, consistent resistance.This truly is an impressive player. The OHSC is as pictured. In good, solid condition for such a senior and all hardware is functioning properly.
If you're a collector or a player.. You will not be disappointed.
