Fantastic 4-valve E-flat Schilke. Horn is in superb, nearly-flawless condition. Plays easily and in-tune, with a remarkably big and open sound for an E-flat. Big sound makes it surprisingly suitable for use in the orchestra. It's obviously great for Hummel/Haydn/Neruda and other solo rep (and the fourth valve opens up some interesting and fun options with added lower range). I've also really enjoyed using it in the recording studio for a variety of purposes. Sensitive to mouthpiece choice, which can offer extended possibilities of sound and application.

This instrument was previously owned by a famously in-demand LA studio player. I've had it for several years and am selling for financial reasons and limited use. Valves and slides are great and horn has high compression. Only flaws I can find are a small discoloration on female tubing of first valve slide, and a very tiny ding just inside the bell rim. I had a top local tech remove a tiny dent in leadpipe, which left no visible mark. Buy with confidence that you're receiving a top-of-the-line professional horn ready for use.

These sell new for close to $4k and rarely come up for sale used. More pictures available by request. No case or mouthpiece. Buyer to pay estimated actual shipping cost. $3100
