This was my first professional horn, in 2002 straight from Paris. I have played it very little in the last 5 years since becoming a music therapist, and primarily play bari and tenor.It's time to find this gem of an alto new and loving home. It'll be bittersweet to send this horn on its way as it has never let me down. Got me through many prize competitions in high school and undergrad, and has performed as far away as Beijing. Always a pure and vibrant tone, with an impeccable build quality that lends to great dexterity and minimal key sounds. In the name of transparency any blemishes are shown in photos, and do not impact playing quality. The discoloration near serial number is surface level, but is under the lacquer and cannot be treated easily. It does not implicate any damage and future decay, it is only surface level.
