Here is a good single French horn. It plays very well but it is cosmetically challenged. There is lacquer missing from inside the bell and outside the bell on the main bell curve. I disassembled it, chemically flushed it out, restrung & oiled all 3 rotors and lubed all slides. So, it’s clean as a whistle and ready to play. The case is in very good condition and it comes with a Yamaha #30 mouthpiece. I believe that is the original mouthpiece that came with it from the factory. Come see it and try it out.
This is an exceptional, professional model instrument. The 642 offers outstanding intonation and tone expected from a “compensating euphonium”, which means that it can play as a Bb or an F instrument. Features large shank receiver and 4 valves (3 top + 1 side). Solid construction and space age materials combine to make the YEP-642 Series a wonderfully playing instrument. The 642 Series has a larger bell flare and large shank mouthpiece receiver to produce a gorgeous, colorful sound that stands apart from most other instruments. You will really enjoy the experience of playing this instrument. It comes with a Yamaha 51L mouthpiece, which is standard. It also comes in its original case, which is in pristine condition, as is the horn itself. The owners manual and keys to the case locks are still in the case. Frankly, it looks almost unused. Come see this instrument.
There are two more of these “606’s” listed below and they are all very good student model trombones. This particular ‘bone is cosmetically not as nice as the others but the hand slide works great and it sounds very good. We chemically flushed it then oiled and lubed everything. Of course it comes with a King 12C mouthpiece. Such a deal!
This is a classic instrument from the turn of the last century. This is a 1902, silver plated, Besson Cornet which was made in London, England. It is in spectacular condition and recently had the valves re-plated so, the valve compression is perfect. Almost every section of the cornet is engraved. Actually, on this website go back to the Home page and scroll down a bit and you’ll see several more photos of this very instrument. These photos will show you just how elaborate the engraving really is on this beautiful horn. I have seen other Besson cornets but never one quite this old and never with this much engraving. Even the tops of the finger buttons are engraved! Also in the photo you will see an additional leadpipe and an additional tuning slide which will allow you to convert the horn so it plays in several different keys. Depending on the leadpipe and tuning slide combinations this cornet will play in Bb, A and Ab. Call 973-4299 to make an appointment to see and play this horn.
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.
Plenty of King “606” trombones on this page. That’s because they are made well and play well. Just like all of our brass instruments, we have Chemically Flushed this horn, replaced the water key cork and lubed the main tuning slide. This horn comes with a Bach 6 1/2 AL mouthpiece. That is a mouthpiece that is made for beginners. Additionally, the horn comes in its original hard shell case.
Looking for a “C” trumpet….. well, I have a very good one for you. Most every trumpet you have seen is a Bb trumpet. A Bb is the standard trumpet used across the board for ceremonial bands, marching bands, big bands, rock bands, etc., etc., etc. The “C” trumpet is primarily used for orchestral work. This particular “C” trumpet is in spectacular condition. It is clean as a whistle. By the way, how clean are whistles? Amazingly clean I gather. The horn comes with 2 Amado water keys, a 1st slide trigger, a Bach 3C mouthpiece and, of course, it is in its original hard shell case. Even though it is clean as a whistle we still disassembled it and flushed it out. These trumpets sell for well over $2000.00 new so a horn in this great condition for $1050.00 is a super deal. So, get out your “classical chops” and come give this horn a toot.
This is a great student model, single French horn just like the one listed below that I recently sold. Of course, we disassembled and chemically cleaned to horn, inside an out. I re-strung the rotors and lubed all the slides. This horn plays well and is cosmetically in excellent condition. It comes with a Bach 11 mouthpiece, which looks brand new, and in its original hard shell case, which is in really good shape. New, these horns sell for over $2000.00 so, $850.00 for a horn in this condition is a super deal.
Another excellent choice for a student model, single French Horn. The layout of the horn is perfect for younger student hands. We disassembled and chemically flushed the horn. All rotors and slides have been oiled and lubed. This instrument does come with a mouthpiece. Come check it out.
Smoother and way less bright that a trumpet is the beautiful sound of this flugelhorn. We did our standard disassemble and cleaning on this instrument. While researching this horn I found that it was made circa 1972. Even with 43 years on it I must admit that it still looks good. The original lacquer is still intact, good plating on the valves and structurally a sound instrument. It comes with a Bach 1 1/4C mouthpiece and in its original case which is in very good condition. The case is actually a double case so you can carry the flugelhorn and a trumpet simultaneously. Handy!
This is a Yamaha 3 valve baritone that is in good condition. I disassembled it, did a chemical flush, replaced the water key cork & valve felts then oiled and lubed everything. It comes in its original case, which is in good condition, and with an EZ-Tone mouthpiece, which has been cleaned and disinfected. So, it looks good and sounds great plus, how often do you see these for sale especially at this price. Come try it.

A Benge 61/2AL mouthpiece, which is perfect for a beginner, comes with the horn. This trombone also comes in its original manufactures case which is great condition. See it, play it, take it.

This King baritone was made circa 1970 and it is in great condition. It is a 3 valve, 5 slide horn that comes with the original King mouthpiece and in its original faux alligator skin case, which both are in great shape. Oh yea, it also comes with the key to lock the case lock! Needless to say someone has taken care of this instrument. We disassembled, cleaned, reassembled, changed all felts and corks then oiled and lubed it. It plays very well. This is a classic horn that should be played, it needs to be played, it wants to be played, it must be played!

This is a professional model tenor/bass trombone with a classic large bore symphonic design. It has a traditional “F attachment” wrap and a standard rotor design. Because of the .547 bore, it has a very open feel and is best suited for the lower parts in a jazz band as well as for symphonic playing. This is a very versatile model of trombone. A bronze brass bell comes standard on this model to offer the performer a quick response and a warmer tone. I disassembled, cleaned, reassembled, oiled, lubed and restrung the rotor. Whew! The inner slide has all its plating and is slick as greased lightin’. It also comes with a large shank mouthpiece. Brand new this horn sells for $2400.00 to $2600.00!!! A super nice horn for any player especially at this price.
A “6D” is a great choice for an entry level double horn or if you’re looking for a second horn, just in case you accidentally leave your good horn in Kalamazoo after a gig. This horn is from the late 60’s/early 70’s. It has been oiled and lubed within an inch of its life. All rotors and all slides move freely. The horn is structurally sound meaning no dents, no loose braces and it blows freely & sounds good.
Here is a classic trombone that any trombonist would love to have. A 1950 King 2B “Liberty” with all original lacquer and in the original brown alligator case. The horn and case are both in great condition. Come try this horn!
This “model 37 Strad” is a Pro model instrument. While doing research on this horn I see that it was made between 1975 and 1980. The serial number suggests, more specifically, 1977 – 1978. When I received it there was some slight damage to the bell so, I smoothed out the creases and it looks very good. I did a chemical flush, replaced all the valve felts, the water key cork then oiled and lubed it. A Bach 3C mouthpiece is included and it comes in its original brown case with alligator trim. Hey, the key for the case locks is still in the case! It plays very well so come give it a try and see what you think.
This is a great step-up from your student model trombone. The YSL-446G is considered an intermediate horn that has several professional model features. For example, it has a lazer-fused pluzuma welded bell which means the bell resonates as if it were seamless. That translates to it’s a better sounding horn. It has an “F” attachment. The hand slide is a newer design that provides better air-tightness and smoother movement even in 6th & 7th positions. The bore diameter is .525 and it has an 8.5″ bell. As always, the horn has been cleaned out completely and is ready to play. New, this horn lists for over $2300.00. Big Box stores are selling it for over $1800.00 so, a horn of this quality for $1300.00 is a deal. Come by the shop and take a peek at it.
This is a very good double French horn and everything about it is in great shape. I disassembled it and did a chemical flush which means that it is as clean, inside and out, as when it was new. I restrung and oiled the rotors, lubed all the slides and raised some minor dents. A Farkas model mouthpiece, not too shabby, is included. The horn comes in its original case which is in great condition. Come see it, come play it and I think you’ll be impressed with the sound quality, playability and appearance of this instrument.
These “TR-300’s” are really good student model trumpet. It has been disassembled, chemically flushed, valve felts changed then everything that needs to be oiled & lubed was oiled and lubed.

This is a very good looking and good sounding trombone. On top of that it is specifically made for beginning players and highly recommended by band directors. I don’t think this horn was used very much consequently it looks almost as good as a new horn. I disassembled it and completely cleaned it. I have also included a freshly re-plated Yamaha “48” mouthpiece with it. This is the same mouthpiece that would have come with this horn from the factory and is perfect for a beginning trombonist. Plus it comes in its original case which is it great condition. So, considering that this trombone normally sells for over $1200.00 brand new, $400.00 for this instrument is a very good deal.

In other words, it looks and plays like a new horn. It comes in its original case, which is in great condition, and I have included a Yamaha 11B4 mouthpiece. The 11B4 is Yamaha’s equivalent to a Bach 7C mouthpiece. Either one is perfect for a beginning trumpet player. Come try out this horn.
This is a super-clean student model trombone that plays very well. It appears to me that the horn was rarely used. Besides our standard chemical flush I lightly tweaked the hand slide alignment. I also included a UMI 12C mouthpiece. This is a great deal for $350!
Super nice, super clean trombone. This is Yamaha’s student model T-bone. Of course, we cleaned it within an inch of its life. It’s now probably as clean as the day it was made. The slide has been properly aligned. It is simply in great shape. Also, a Bach 6 1/2 AL mouthpiece is included. That is the mouthpiece that you definitely want a student to use as a beginner.
This is an exceptional intermediate/professional model horn. I say that because during my research on this trumpet many pundits are comparing it to Bach Stradivarius trumpets which are “pro” instruments. It has a very full, rich sound and looks virtually new. On top of that this horn has been “pimped out” and I really mean that. The previous owner upgraded the horn with a kit offered by Getzen. It is a 700S-GTK outfit that retails for $250.00. This kit includes three 24 karat gold finger buttons, three 24 karat gold valve top caps and three 24 karat gold valve bottom caps. So, now that we have established that this is both a great sounding and great looking horn let’s move on, shall we? Of course, we disassembled it, chemically flushed, oiled & lubed it so it’s as clean as when it was brand new. Come see it, come try it. I think you’ll like it.
This is a classic trumpet from 1932. The Conn “40B” is also referred to as the Conn “Connqueror”, get it, Conn-queror. For an 84 year old trumpet this horn is in great shape both inside and out. It is gold plated and the bell is covered with incredibly intricate engraving. The engraving even includes the God Pan sitting and playing his Pan pipes. Go to my home page on this site and scroll down to see a couple of close up photos of this horn. The valve casings are decagons, yes 10 sided valve casings. The valves themselves are round but the valve casings are decagons. I chemically flushed it out and changed all the felts and corks so, it is clean as a whistle and plays great.
Continuing the Bach Stradivarius legend is this “model 43” trumpet which was made circa 2003. Incredibly clean, plays really well, looks great and has great valve compression. This means the air you blow into it gets used as efficiently as possible, which is what you the horn to do. This trumpet comes with its original hard shell case, in great condition, and a Bach Megatone 3C mouthpiece, which separately sells for $100.00. The horn was disassembled, chemically flushed, oiled & lubed. It’s ready to be played.
Here is a super nice 4 valve, silver plated flugelhorn. It comes with a Bach 3CFL mouthpiece and a double case meaning, besides carrying the flugelhorn the case can also hold a trumpet. Nice!
