Type: Tenor Horn
Brand: Antoine Courtois 180R Sub-Type: Lacquer

Antoine Courtois 180R Tenor Horn – Lacquer Finish.  Used – Serviced -  good playing condition.

This tenor horn, serial number 040308/ 366212, was built in the Courtois factory in Paris (around 2001) and is a professional standard instrument.  It was received from a customer as part payment for a new Willson tenor horn.  The instrument is in a good condition and blows well with a bright, clear sound.  The bell section is red brass with the remainder being yellow.  The previous owner was playing the courtois in a competing brass band. 

Having been serviced by our technicians you will find the mechanical operation - valves, slides and water keys (4 in total) are all in perfect working order.  The condition of the valves are excellent; the cockades are solid and without holes; the nylon lifters are in good order, as are the valve springs. 

Generally the cosmetic condition is fair but there is wear in several places particularly at contact points on the valve casing, 1st branch and main tuning slide.  The plate on the legs of the tuning slides is also scratched and worn.  In addition to the level of scratching that can be expected of any instrument over time, there are some more prominent scratches on the bell section.  There is a small dent in the knuckle of the 1st slide which is deemed un-economical to remove.  Likewise there are a few tiny “dings” across the instrument which I was unable to pick out in the photographs.

We have play tested the instrument and it blows well and the cosmetic condition does not affect the playing quality in any way.  See pictures to understand the cosmetic condition.

It is supplied in a Courtois case which is looking tired externally but is in working order; the zip works well, carry handle and back-pack straps are secure.

If on initial inspection you are disappointed in any way, and return it, you will receive a full refund.

It will be well packed before shipping and sent Business Post courier (inland UK only) for £25 and will require a signature on delivery (next day service). I will contact you first to establish what days someone will be there to sign for the parcel. Collection in person can be arranged. Delivery for non-inland UK (e.g. Northern Ireland and Scottish Highlands) is £40.

This item will be sent to most European countries (door to door) on Business Post Euroroad for £30 

Delivery to USA /Canada by carrier (with insurance) £130; Australia or Japan by carrier with insurance £170.

Payment by Paypal is required for non-UK transactions. UK customers may pay by credit or debit card if preferred.
