Focal Length:4.8mm

Yellow Brass Mirafone Serial # covered by ringset, but valve cluster #45.  The horn’s ring set is a Conn/ Selmer  alex compatible set.

The h0rn is not lacquered and will oxidize and needs to be wiped down after use or allowed to oxidize. It can be polished with any good silver/brass polish. Plays well , very good (not new) compression. All slides are brass in NiSi outers.

A nice Kruspe wrap horn. Spatulas have have some wear as seen in the pics below. Custom additions could include an Amado water key, an adjustable pinky hook, and or a Conn Selmer flipper. Ask for price.

It has new springs and (mostly) new corks, and restrung.

The horn, up close has signs of previous work done, a couple small dents. Probably imported in the early 60’s. Let me know if you have information to the contrary, I’ll add it to the listing.

Shipped in a flat detach case, or a standard fixed bell case, if you already have a good detach case. $1800.00 + ship


Next  Reynolds FEO3 detach


Serial #211357.  Late 1965,  polished and ragged, with some remaining scratches and a few hard to reach dents that do not affect the performance of the horn. The inside of the flare still has lacquer.The valves have very good, not new, compression. They haven’t been plated. 

This horn will satisfy a serious younger player, college music education major or adult on a budget that would like a detachable flare for portability

The FEO 3 model was added to the Reynolds line after they dropped the Pottag and Chambers models due to a dispute with the new owners. The FEO3 is the Chambers Model.


Additional features can be added to this horn. Holton Adjustable Pinky Hood, or Conn/selmer flipper @ $95.00 each . Amado water key @25.00

Comes in a flat case. with fuzzy liner over styrofoam w/ a single MP hole, no mute storage.

$1250.00 + ship


F. Schmidt/ VMI// Hoyer stencil horn, Yellow brass Geyer wrap. Made in Markneukirchen, Germany in the same plant that the Hoyer horns are made. Serial #373422M

It retains most of the factory Lacquer.

The horn has an adjustable thumb lever which allows changes in the angle of the spatula and it also has in and out adjustment

The horn can stand in either F or Bb. String linkage on the primary three valves with Mechanical on the thumb lever. This horn uses the same valve cluster, with oil ports,  and bends/bell as the Hans Hoyer 801.

The horn has signs of minor dent work

Comes in a sturdy case. Note the adjustable pinky hook.

Ask questions, more pics available for all these horns.
