~~~~MARTIN HANDCRAFT EUPHONIUM/BARITONE VINTAGE~~~~
Thanks for looking at our auction. We are selling this instrument for a dear friend of our family.
He has played in a ''old time polka'' band for years and now he is retiring and wants to sell all his instruments. He asked us to list this older horn. It was bought at an antique store when he was stationed down in Ky. in 1960. He has used this horn for years and it still plays and sounds great. There is no damage to this large instrument but the laquer has wore off.
This Compensating 4 valved instrument the lowest note possible is BBB 6 ledger lines below the bass cleff.
The mouth piece is a Vincent Bach Corp. # 7C
Serial number for horn is:143537 (we were told that dates it back to the 40's). I can move all but two of the tuners.
All 3 spit valves are good and work well.
The case is still very strong and usable. It has letters in gold (KING U.S.M.C.) on the cover of the case.
It has a detatchable bell.
I tried to get a picture of the engraving on back of Bell but it didn't turn out very good.
It shows a hand holding the marching staff and engraved are the words MARTIN HANDCRAFT ELKHART U.S.A. In larger but lighter engraving is U.S.M.C.
Please email any questions you might have.bidder to pay $50.00 shipping in USA.
