Other Details: This is not only a beautifully playing instrument but also a historical item.
It is the Ed Kruspe Hoflieferant Erfurt D.R.G.M. 88890- Made in Germany.
Known as the "Modell Professor Wendler, Boston". The superb hand made horn dates back to the 1920's. It is a rare horn as there were not many made of this type and are rarely available in such good condition. "Kruspe French Horns are found in most of the world's great symphony and philharmonic orchestras. The valves are rotary type, each one hand fitted with micro-metric precision to its casing. The bell is hand- hammered which solidifies the metal to an extremely thin texture, extra strong and rough in temper". George Wendler played this type of horn in the Boston Symphony which at the time was 100% Kruspe horns.
The horn comes with a Holton Farkas silver mouthpiece and it's original case.

ADSMANAGER_EXTRAS: Very good condition. Recently this horn was professionally cared for by Master Craftsman, Ron Partch of Partch Brasswind in Toronto, Canada. Ron did an ultrasonic cleaning, rebuilt the rotor valve bearings and gave it a little T.L.C. It is now ready to be shown off by someone who would be proud to own and play this beautiful instrument!
