I have listed the following two horns for friends on e-bay. Please have a look as they are both rare and wonderful in their own way:
One is a rare Conn five valve DB euphonium --silver plated of course-- the Wonderphone with a large .591 bore which makes it a great playing horn. The three on top two on the side valve configuration is also great if you are used to a compensating euphonium.
The second horn is a Conn Orshestra Grand 34 J BBB with four side action valves. It is fantastic shape with a huge majestic sound. The current owner has added a new leadpipe and changed the first valve tubing to facilitate intonation correction. Purists might balk because the original 23 inch bell has been replaced with a Meinl-Weston 2165 bell (for a more compact sound) however the original bell is available and it is in excellent condition.
I can field any questions that you might have.
