I bought this horn a month ago because I absolutely love the sound of this vintage (95xxx).

I gave it a chem cleaning, aligned valves and the 1st and 3rd slides to clean up operation, installed a Dr Valve leadpipe (yes the awesome H style he developed with Mike Sachs (it was clocked and installed stress free)), and installed a 3rd slide stop. All in all I put over 650 in parts and labor into it. If you're interested, I can install the new 25M leadpipe on there for an additional 150 and you'll basically have a 190229!

Unfortunately I absolutely love a horn I picked for myself at the factory and I can’t justify hanging onto both.

The only flaw I can find in it is that the bell has been reinstalled and the silver is missing slightly next to the z braces.

I’m asking 2100 obo shipped.
