Other Details: Alexander 1103 K-Modell. Seven years old, serial number 28135; unlacquered yellow brass, screw bell, hand hammered bell section (extra £1k on list price), string action valves, yellow brass leadpipe (both on special order). Five Joykeys (https://thejoykey.com/) mean that you virtually never have to remove any slides to empty water! Adjustable finger hook, flipper, and thumb lever. Leather Specialities handguard.
I've owned this lovely instrument from new and it's been played day to day in the Ulster Orchestra since then. Woodhead Horns has serviced it regularly and also removed a brace on the leadpipe which helped it to feel a little more free blowing. Nice and easy to play in all registers, valves still running nice and fast. Selling to finance the purchase of a new custom horn.
Comes with a Marcus Bonna MB7 case. Price £6500/US$8500/€7500. Currently in Belfast so can be picked up for a trial here, or couriered anywhere in the world.
