#5 An unknown home built 5 Valve Bb.west MI 5 valve-9Bore: Medium
Alloy: Yellow Brass
Bell: Fixedwest MI 5 valve-4
Lacquer: a little…
Case: fixed bell hard case.
Condition: Fairwest MI 5 valve-1
Other Details: Purchased out of western Michigan several years ago. Unknown builder, but very creative in his or hers building style. Home made turns using existing bends, the change valve (Which drives the stop A extension) made from a standard spatula….The pinky drives the F extension. A quirky fun horn that would allow you to fool w the idea of a five valve Bb for a reasonable investment. A good conversation or teaching horn.

#6  a Pre-Pottag Reynolds double c.1949Lars-pre-3Bore: Medium
Alloy: Yellow Brass
Bell: Fixed
Lacquer: unlacquered, but polishedLars-pre-1
Case: Reynolds fixed bell case (old)
Condition: Very Good
Other Details: A horn from F A Reynold’s shop shortly after his leaving King, About the late 40’s All original, lacquer had been remover but the horn is polished. on out casing of the #2 slide is engraved “Dayton Public Schools FH #6. Very good compression. All slides smooth and Valves are quick w/ no bearing play. It has a Schmidt style hook flipper, a rubber encased thumb lever, amado WC, Mich badge. Plays very well…..pre-2
This is the horn that became the Pottag Model. I don’t know how much real input Max Pottag had on his “model” I don’t know if the taper were changed slightly. This horn plays like a Pottag.The differences are slight. the Thumb linkage is mechanical, the Bb tuning slide has no “pull Button”. The levers are rounded as the early Kings were, not flat as the later Reynolds were. There is no bracing across the tuning crooks, the lead pipe, which appears to be original is NISI. Minor signs of brace soldering and slight bell crease scars. Very cool old horn for a serious player. Slides are brass in nickle. + pix available, ask ?’s
Extras Included: reynolds case
Price: $850.00   Price adjustment now $675.00


As with all the horns I offer, there are always others,(ask) , More pix of specific horns are available (What do you want to see??)  and prices are not set in stone, but with in reason.  Questions answered.
