I rarely use the word “MINT” to describe the condition of a used instrument. However, this is the exact word to describe this spectacular euphonium. Both the horn and the case are without a scratch. The horn was still in the factory plastic wrapping when I first saw it. We Flushed & Lubed the horn, not that it needed it, but we always clean out an instrument before we put it up for sale. Speaking of “SALE”, this horn is on “SALE”. It was priced at $1299.00 but now it is $1149.00.
