This Paxman Series 4 horn is in brand new condition, and features a detachable bell, adjustable pinky ring, and an adjustable thumb trigger.

It has been tested several times, amounting to no more than 5 hours of playing total. I have personally played this horn to test it, and can say that it performs well and has no issues. The Series 4 served me well in transitioning from beginner horns to now professional horns in my university studies, and is a great intermediate option for aspiring horn players.

This horn is a recent warranty replacement for the Paxman 4 I played on during high school. As a result of the warranty issue I had with the previous horn of the same model, Paxman London sent me this replacement several months ago, so the horn is in brand new condition.


Description from Houghton Horns website:

"A modified Geyer-style semi-professional model double French horn in F/Bb.

Paxman has introduced the Series 4 as a natural bridge between the Academy student horns and its professional level instruments. The Series 4 incorporates many features found on top level professional horns, including a detachable bell (standard), water key, protective nickel hand guards and nickel silver valve casings.

Made in yellow brass with a medium large bell, the balanced sound is characteristically warm, but also lively. Based on a Geyer style, the wrap makes for a free-blowing horn.

With an adjustable finger hook and thumb lever, the left hand position can be made comfortable for almost any player—no matter the age."
