I have Bach Vindabona looking for a new home. Serial number indicates ~1977.

It's an older horn, that has signs of use, but it sounds, and plays great. Valves work great. Compression is good. All slides move well. I am not the original owner, but I've had it for a few years. I bought a few horns to try out, looking for a new daily driver. I would love to keep it, but I have to let it go. I've attached photos, and have more, if you need to see them.

The Bach Vindabona has a 72 bell, and a 43 leadpipe. Stamped MLV on the valve casing.

There is some slight red rot in the leadpipe. It's very small, and I can provide more detailed photos, by request. It does not affect the playability. I just don't want there to be any surprises.

The main tuning slide needs a thick grease, or it winds up being a little loose. I have been using SuperSlick Heavy slide grease, and it works perfect. I have a small container that has only been used a few times, I will pack with the horn.

There is a brace missing on the third slide.

Some dings, and scratches, but if you need to see better photos, of any part, please email me, and ask.

The horn does not come with a mouthpiece.
